Materials

  • cards with Aggressive, Assertive, Passive, Passive-aggressive written on them
  • Chart with the 4 quadrants

Instructions

Have sets of 4 cards with each of the behaviors: Aggressive, Assertive, Passive Aggressive and Passive. In small groups or pairs, have one person draw a card and then play the improv scenario using the communication style prompt on the card. The second person responds naturally. May work well in small groups so people can witness. 

Examples
 Partner A says, “I need a ride to the airport.”

There’s one donut left and Person B wants it. Pick one of the cards and use that behavior with your partner.

Repeat trying all 4 behaviors

Debrief
What was X scenario like? What was the tone/energy/body language/word choice etc.  of X style? 

Use chart -- How did the speaker convey Openness of Communcation? How did the speaker convey consideration (or lack there of) for others?

What style was easiest for you? What was most challenging?
What did you learn about yourself?

How does what you learned apply to your situation?


Variation
Print words on business cards or other material that you'd like participants to take with them & allow them to do so.
