Conceived by architect and artist, FAIA, of Svigals + Partners, the Talk+Listen dice game helps to remove barriers from collaboration

The firm themselves uses the game as a business development tool as well as for strengthening communications with clients. The game is designed as an informal, group-based way to encourage sharing of ideas and to enliven collaborative discussion.

With the idea of initiating and maintaining collaborative relationships, the firm injects an element of social science to their strategy. The game develops candid yet meaningful interpersonal engagement, where everyone can be imaginative and inspired and express how they look at challenges or design obstacles differently.

Talk+Listen directly reflects several strains of thinking adopted and applied by the firm over the course of three decades: Boundless Resources, which acknowledges that groups tend to work more successfully than individuals; Positive Mindset, which seeks to reduce any anxiety or stress from interpersonal communication and Neoroplasticity, which describes synaptic and non-synaptic plasticity resulting from changes in behaviour and environment.

The architecture firm has created a number of tools known collectively as The Art of Creative Engagement, and see potential for Talk+Listen’s application in other settings, including architecture schools, executive development workshops and business development outreach.
