Do you already have a favorite training or teaching tool?

Many effective learning games can be combined to produce high-level results. Dr. George Simons, diversophy´s founder and editor-in-chief, is the author of eight Cultural Detective® instruments. In his lectures and seminars, he often combines both tools.
