Different groups have different needs. The Freeman Institute™ seminar experience is meant to be an interactive experience in a fun, non-threatening atmosphere.  The following is an option available to interested groups:

During the afternoon, participants can experientially understand more about the subject of the selected seminar by playing the KnowMe™ game with any number of groups of four to six participants per table -- with a debrief exercise after everyone is finished. This highly-interactive game, with seven different variations,  is based on the Disclosure/Feedback model of awareness known as the Johari Window (click to view more about the game), named after Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham. This award-winning game has been used in over 20 countries by a wide range of organizations and is specifically designed for establishing trust, emotional safety and enhancing relationships in the workplace.
