About UPPINESS GAME

World-famous Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar and Organizational psychologists Dalia Feldheim and Oren Appel – have developed an exciting game for organizations. It is an interactive and fun online game that boosts happiness at work by enabling participants to learn tools and solutions from the sciences of happiness at work and positive psychology.

The game is played at virtual tables with 6 participants. You have both individual and collective goals. The personal objective is to collect as many Upper tokens as you can to win. The group objective is to solve as many game challenges as possible. In the beginning of the game, players select their strengths (the game supports both VIA Strengths and Clifton Strengths classification) and get assigned four random cards representing the solutions they can propose in 4 positive psychology areas:

✔ Physical solutions


✔ Intellectual/Mental solutions


✔ Relational/Social solutions


✔ Emotional solutions

Strengths and solutions are then used to address two types of challenges:

✔ Questions – work-related dilemmas that need to be solved


✔ Actions – energy-increasing tasks that need to be done.
                                       

A game can last 60 to 90 minutes depending on the number of rounds and participants. At the end of the game, there is a debrief session to discuss learning, solutions proposed, and commitment to actions.
