The Brave Truth Experience
A team, leadership and culture transformation initiative, Brave Truth ensures maximum participation of individuals as they undergo an experiential discovery of unconscious bias, beliefs and personal perceptual frameworks through a facilitated process of sharing personal information in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
As the game progresses, relationships of trust are cemented, and participants find mutuality through a growth in understanding of similarities as opposed to a focus on differences. The debrief provides the opportunity of raised personal awareness and learning, and a mechanism for transferring a silently or overtly contracted agreement of trust, developed through the playing of Brave Truth, back to the workplace.
- Development and enrichment of meaningful relationships.
- A lasting foundation for future co-operation and collaboration between individuals and groups.
- Open and truthful communication.
- Constructive resolution of conflict.
- Trust, interdependence and resilience.
By its experiential and considered design, Brave Truth not only creates guaranteed replicable outcomes of safety, disclosure and discovery, it’s the speed at which
it happens, in 120 minutes, that is revolutionising team and leadership development initiatives. – Geraldine Coy
