Escape Rooms as Research tool
Friesland Boeit is one of the first companies to be training teams with a mobile escape room, where teams are trained and confronted with their videos. The video is analysed together and with a reflection afterwards with expert trainers, the teams are being trained. The model to analyse this behaviour is developed in co creation with lector dr. Jelle Dijkstra, who wrote the management book of the year in 2012, “Gedeeld Leiderschap” (Shared leadership) and with many psychologists and behavioural scientists.
We will talk about the research and the actions we have taken on making our escape room a powerful tool to help organizations develop a more powerful team. Using each talent instead of position, we encourage and show companies with our video analyses, that teams have more power within if they know each other’s talents and have the faith to put them to good use. By confronting them with their own behaviour, in a game setting where they show their true selves, it’s a powerful tool for change and development.
