These uniquely simple yet powerful tools create more human experiences, but are flexible enough to be used in ways that suit the specific needs of every leader. 

We’ve designed them to be used by everyone within your organisation – regardless of their status. They work for small and large organisations – because both small and large organisations are made up of human beings who are motivated by similar things: relatedness, competence and autonomy. 


 

The Emotional Culture Deck

– An insanely simple tool for better workplace culture

What is The Emotional Culture Deck and how does it work? Watch this video to find out. 

The Emotional Culture Deck provides an insanely simple card-based tool for structured face-to-face conversations about workplace culture, feelings, and experience.

It’s for leaders who need to understand what drives and motivates the people in their organisation, but struggle to bridge the conversation and empathy gap.

Unlike impersonal, reductive, digital approaches that make people feel like undervalued cogs and reduce engagement. The deck helps leaders ensure empathy and human connection become a core part of an organisation’s style and success

Only the Emotional Culture Deck is simple enough to get up and running in minutes, yet powerful and flexible enough to drive lasting organisational change.

What people are saying about The Emotional Culture Deck...

 
In my experience, I don’t think much emphasis has been placed on how people want to feel when they come to work. The Emotional Culture Deck has the ability to transform that, and in this day and age, the mental well-being of employees plays a huge part in how effective they will be at work.”
— Chris Nevin, Pathways Manager, Cricket Wellington
I love this product. The Emotional Culture Deck has become a key part of our people and culture work at Uprise.
— Tim Pointer. Forbes 30 Under 30 and Uprise Digital co founder
We used The Emotional Culture Deck as a leadership team and then with our wider team of 30 and I was wowed by how it enabled all of us to really think about and discuss the emotional aspects of our work environment.
— Vicki Mclaren, WCC Organisational Development Manager
It’s been awesome to experience this – a simple game with such a huge impact - loved it! Organisations who want to truly connect with their people simply can’t ignore this stuff. Looking forward to seeing how far we can take this tool!

The Customer Experience Deck (Prototype)

– A beautifully simple tool for better customer experience

I’m constantly looking for new ways to bring my people together to collectively solve problems in an interesting and interactive way, so I can’t recommend this tool more highly.
— ANDREW SHARP, BOBUX CHIEF EXECUTIVE
 

“Who are our customers? What do we want them to feel (and not feel)?”

Successful organisations are deeply focused on their customers. Customer experience (CX) will overtake price and product as the main brand differentiator by 2020.

This card game can help you and your organisation become more customer-centric. It works by sparking structured conversations about who your customers are, what you know and don’t know about them, and how you want customers people to feel when they engage with your business.

We designed the CX Deck because we’ve found that many organisations struggle to get to the heart of these customer relationships. Leaders know they need to be more customer-centric. Front line teams often have great insights. The CX Deck is a simple, human way to build shared understanding and better customer brand experiences and relationships.

“We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It’s our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better.” – Jeff Bezos
