I currently experiment with games to show participants of my workshops how communication does (not) work and where the challenges are. The newest prototype is a communications domino. It looks a bit like domino and it works about the same, except… Well, see for yourself.
[with english summary below] Heute schlage ich eine neue Seite auf im Buch meines (Arbeits-)Lebens und gehe mit meinem Unternehmen Kommunikation 3.0 an den Start.
In a course on Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) I learnt about the consent decision making.

The triangle can symbolize this: Ever forgotten to buy a cross-brace at IKEA and watching your shelf collapse? The triangle is what gives a square shelf stability…
