Who is the game „Gronholm method” for?
It is for all people over the age of 16 who have a desire to evaluate themselves, to have a more objective view of themselves, their attitude towards other people.
What kind of a person do I become when „they” decide differently than I would decide? What should I do if „they” are against me?
How to evaluate, who among us is the most important and what to do with others who are „less important”?
The game is for those who ask themselves the question, „Do I owe something to other people around me? If yes, then to whom, how much and for what? If not, then why do people behave as if I owe them something?
How is the game „Gronholm method” played?
The goal of the game is for participants to solve group tasks together. The leader of the group gives the group various tasks for which it is necessary for the group to have an active discussion, the expressing of one’s opinion; at times each participant might have to actively defend his/her opinion.
Because the tasks of the game deal with each participant’s personal interests, it will not be easy for the group to reach a consensus.
Each of the following tasks will be more difficult than the prior and will demand from its participants the expression of his/her personality traits, a deeper involvement and undertaking of greater responsibility for the group’s collective decision. Usually in the middle of the game, most „masks” have fallen and an honest and direct conversation is able to take place among the participants. After each phase of the game, the participants write for themselves a written feedback.
At the conclusion of the game, a joint feedback is obtained, when the participants share their revelations about themselves, others and also talk about what has happened to them during the course of the game. The leader of the game also participates in the final feedback, commenting on several important moments during the game.
