Let’s Play BounceBack: 12/19/17 – Blue & Red Politics

Yes, we did! We created a deck to help manage the challenges put forth by the 2016 presidential election. The election is over. The next few years are likely to be difficult. We must now take a closer look at issues that haunted each of us and how we come together again after the great divide.

Families are at odds, friends are not speaking, and even the workplace has become a source of political tension. We need to remember and remind the politicians representing us that connecting with others is better than isolation and that flexibility works better in most situations than rigidity. Communicating with others is almost always better than not talking, and acting on our values works better than acting on our fears.

Use this deck to jumpstart those silenced conversations with friends and family. Use them in groups and practice flexible thinking. Build the Skills & Attitudes of resilience in order to respond to future political challenges.

Yes, we did! We created a deck to help manage the challenges put forth by the 2016 presidential election. How are you coping with Blue & Red politics?

BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.

Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them.  We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.

Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?

Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.

Please feel free to contact us with your feedback.
