We all understand that our learners are more likely to adsorb and acquire new skills and knowledge when they are engaged in the subject they are learning. We also appreciate that finding the time to review your training content can be a challenge. When was the last time you reflected on the impact of your current training games? The team at Training Central have all been there. Time is a valuable commodity as a trainer. We are yet to meet a trainer that tells us they have too much time on their hands.

Despite all this, the reality is that training games provide a great anchor to learning. They allow us to give learners a different context,  often reframing topics into relatable and understandable actions and activities. Games allow learners to practise new skills in a safe environment, they allow learners to fail, but most importantly, they allow learners to learn.

It’s not just trainers that can benefit from our games. If you are a manager, then the training games provided below can liven up your meetings, huddles, breakouts or away days in the blink of an eye. Dip in; they come with detailed instructions on how to use. If you can read, you can use them – it’s as simple as that.

In the spirit of supporting learners and saving our training peers time and effort, please find all our training games below, provided free of charge. Please feel free to download any or all the training games. If you are using all of them, add them to your cart, then you can download in bulk.

Training Game Topics

Learn From Others – Training Game

£0.00

We can all learn from others or from our past experiences. We just need to think about what we want to develop and how we then go about replicating/emulating the qualities we see in others.

70:20:10 Learning Training Game

£0.00

Learning opportunities are all around us; yet sometimes, we can get fixated on ‘courses’ or ‘e-learning’. This game harnesses the 70:20:20 learning models to provide insights on the types of learning opportunities that are at hand and within easy to access for each of us.

Prioritise Tasks at The Hotel – Training Game

£0.00

Time is a limited resource for many people. Understanding how to prioritise tasks and invest our time on the right things can be a challenge. Where will you get the best return? What is a priority versus a nice to have? The Hotel is a great game to help cut through the noise and focus on the things that matter.

Charades Training Game

£0.00

Charades is a classic game played throughout the world. Leverage that mass understanding to help your learners to reflect on all the great work they do for their organisation.

Drive Change – If not now, then Venn? – Training Game

£0.00

In order to drive change, it is important that we are aware of the needs, strengths and threats that will help or hinder our ability to realise the change we want to see. ‘If not now, then Venn?’ helps to provide the focus your learners need to deliver lasting change.

Leadership Reflection Chain – Training Game

£0.00

Being able to articulate what defines our leadership approach and what leadership means to us, can be tough. Many of us fall back on old boring soundbites we have read in a book or magazine. But how can we expect people to connect to us and be led by us if we don’t appreciate or understand what makes each of us unique as a leader? The Leadership Reflection Chain helps learners to reflect on leadership experiences and begin to piece together their own leadership narrative.

Creative Focus – Training Game

£0.00

When we have a clear purpose and focus on the task in hand, we develop a passion and drive to complete it successfully, and in the time allowed. This game helps to attune learners to an example of the level of focus required to be successful leaders.

Listening to Understand – Training Game

£0.00

Listening closely to others can be difficult at times, particularly when we work in fast-paced environments with multiple distractions vying for our attention. This game helps to draw attention to many of these common challenges whilst focussing on developing your learner’s core listening skills.

Behavioural Performance Continuum -Training Game

£0.00

The ‘Behavioural Performance Continuum’ helps learners to visualise where they feel they/or the organisation currently perform, versus where they would like to perform in the future enables detailed and action focussed conversations to take place. This training game also works well when reviewing organisational values.

Quick Draw – Communication Skills – Training Game

£0.00

We each rely on a broad range of communication skills every day. This game draws attention to issues that are raised when our ability to communicate is restricted. Simultaneously, the game pushes participants to recognise when to move on and not become ‘stalled’ on challenges.

Context is Everything – Continual Improvement Game

£0.00

We are all guilty of reaching for the easy or familiar answer to our problems, regardless of the context in which those problems surface. For the most, this works well. However, we also need to be mindful that this approach stunts opportunities for continual improvement. This training game will underscore the fact that the context in which a problem/scenario occurs should always influence our response.

Don’t Forget the Lyrics – Collaboration Game

£0.00

Asking people to collaborate is easy. Getting them to break old habits and collaborate can often be hard. ‘Don’t Forget the Lyrics’ is a fun collaboration game to help teams consider how they communicate and work together in order to achieve a task. We can’t promise that their singing will improve.

Peak Performance Game

£0.00

Talk of peak performance is rife in most organisations. But what does it mean? More specifically, what does it mean at an individual level? Training Central’s Peak Performance Game game helps learners reflect on their past experiences of peak performance, enabling them to contextualise what peak performance looks and feels like to each of them.

Describe It – Communicate with Others – Training Game

£0.00

We are all guilty of making assumptions regarding other’s understanding of the messages we provide. ‘Describe It’ is a game that highlights how we need to be mindful of how we communicate with others to ensure we are doing our utmost to promote clarity and understanding.

Impact of Change – Training Game

£0.00

Change occurs daily. Often, we will only consider the impact of large change projects on the people around us. However, as this game shows, the impact of change is felt even within the minute of changes.

Visioning – Training Game

£0.00

Teams and organisations require a target for the future. It is this visioning that enables performance to be directed and steered, inspiring action and success.

Party People – Behaviour in Meetings Training Game

Turn the Paper – Common Goal – Training Game

Teams often share goals. Getting teams to work collaboratively to achieve these shared goals can be a challenge. ‘Turn the Paper’ is a fun training game that will help participants to break down barriers and see the value in collaboration in order to achieve their common objective.

Goal Setting and Action Planning – Training Game

£0.00

Training Central’s Goal Setting and Action Planning exercise enables participants to spend time defining the specific goals they want to achieve, before mapping their plans and activities against each goal, ensuring they can track and measure their performance and success.
