“There’s an activity called “Win All You Can” that I’ve used in some of my intergroup dialogue work where participants are split into smaller teams. One of the key components of this activity is how the participants define the word “You.” Does the “you” who is trying to win mean you as an individual, as a sub-group, or does the “you” represent everyone as a collective whole?
As the game progresses, the more folks make decisions that benefit them individually, while they may earn some gains in the short-term, they lose out in the long-term. The more participants understand themselves as part of a larger collective and act accordingly, the more universal the gains are that are experienced.”
