Simon Says for AdultsThe Professional Listening Game
The game is more of a challenge than ever. Why? Because being a good listener is still tricky, especially when our “grown-up” tricks to hide that won’t work here.
A great way to remind ourselves that paying attention is still a challenge for everyone… but easier to face when we can laugh at ourselves.
We know the basics:
- Only do the thing Milo commands IF he starts with “Simon Says.”
- And what if Milo’s actions don’t match his words? Do what he says; not what he does.
Nothing to it, right? Ha! Not when we big kids are always pre-expecting to protect ourselves!
This short program isn’t a speech, but as the clip reel shows, Milo’s opening not only excites them for what lies ahead, but plants seeds to consider how the game reflects the way we all listen and expect to be heard.
