THEORY: StylePlay is based on the well-known research and personality theories of psychologists Carl Jung, William Moulton Marston, and others. Most research has identified two basic dimensions of style, which we refer to as assertiveness and expressiveness. Assertiveness is the effort a person makes to influence or control the thoughts or actions of others. Expressiveness is the effort that a person makes to control his or her emotions and feelings when relating to others.
TO PLAY: Each StylePlay card displays an adjective describing a characteristic that people usually demonstrate in daily interactions. Participants can take part in 12 different card games -- or the facilitator can create a new game with the StylePlay cards. Each of the games allows participants to identify preferred styles -- either their own, those of other participants, or those of famous people.
USES: StylePlay can be used alone, or in combination with any other training product. The Facilitator Guide features a brief overview of the Style Theory that is the basis of the games. In addition, Debriefing Questions and Key Learning Points are provided to help facilitators draw significance and participants to gain deeper insights. Use StylePlay to:
- Provide stand-alone activities such as ice breakers and energizers
- Incorporate into a learning experience on teamwork, leadership, or communication
- Include as an introduction or follow-up to What's My Style? (#RBWCSF)
PLAYERS: StylePlay is intended for 8-12 participants.

- 2 reusable decks of 48 cards each
- Sturdy 6" x 4" game case
- Facilitator Guide (featuring an overview of Style Theory, instructions for conducting 12 group games, administrative guidelines, Debriefing Questions, and Key Learning Points)
