“Healthy debate culture at work” is a story-driven learning experience that helps young professionals improve their communication skills towards a culture that fosters creativity and problem resolution.

The Challenge

Most employees complain about three things related to work: too many interruptions, too many emails, and last but not least, too much time spent in meetings (check out this fantastic infographic by Atlassian). Unproductive discussions and arguments are, in fact, fundamental reasons for this negative predisposition. 

 

 

Under such circumstances, it is challenging to develop an atmosphere that promotes ideas and solutions to problems. Most importantly, a hostile work atmosphere related to too many discussions can detriment employees’ health and conduct to absenteeism or turnovers. 

The Solution

It is crucial to help people at early career stages hone their communication skills and encourage healthy attitudes and behaviors towards discussions and disagreements. 

 

This short and dynamic story-driven learning experience can be implemented during the onboarding of young professionals. It is concise, visually appealing, and offers engaging follow-up resources. Above all, the interactive story allows users to practice and internalize healthy debate culture principles through decision-making, direct feedback, and reflective writing.
