|“Google found the #1 indicator of every high-performing team was psychology safety and trust that’s built only through very strong social connections and cohesion
|“Yale School of Management found that the social cohesion within a team is more predictive of profit and success than the number of years of experience and the collective IQ of the team.”||Employees who have deep trust with their manager are 8x more engaged. Without deep trust, employees show the same level of engagement as does someone who actively distrusts his team leader. For trust to matter, it must be extreme.||68% of employees are disengaged and disconnected at work||Only 16% of employees work at peak performance||Only 28% of managers are skilled at engagement||70%+ teams are dysfunctional and underperform|
What people are saying about Cards Against Mundanity
Senior Director, Head of Corporate Sales, Southwest Airlines and President of AA-ISP
“The workshop and game were excellent. The team was very appreciative of the team building game and workshop. It kept coming up as one of the best experiences they’ve ever had. They were able to quickly open up, be vulnerable and build much stronger and deeper relationships that extended beyond their small groups to our large, global team. Throughout the following two days, we hosted some guests from other groups, and we asked them to answer random cards in front of the audience. Their answers were surprisingly deep and instantly helped to establish trust between them and our teams. It made each of the sessions in our off-site much more valuable. I’d highly recommend this for any team and team off-site.”
Senior Leader and Head of the Video Solutions Group, Google
“I highly recommend every organization plays your employee engagement and team performance game. It’s game changing. There is nothing out there like it. After I heard Jason speak at a Sales Leadership Summit, I played Cards Against Mundanity game with my executive team. We learned important information and experiences about each other that we never knew before (and would have never asked). It helped us build significantly more trust and openly discuss other challenges. We’ve improved our communication, teamwork and team closeness. It made a significant impact in a very short period of time.”

“Getting to work with Jason was a game-changer. I thought my team was close before playing Jason’s Cards Against Mundanity, but seeing how much they bonded (and learned about each other) during the hour we spent playing was amazing. It significantly increased our teamwork, communication, engagement, and problems solving. I cannot stress enough – ANY relationship will be strengthened by playing this game. I’ve played with family members, friends and coworkers in other departments and the results speak for themselves. Beyond that, Jason has continued to offer his insights & suggestions on how I can better navigate difficult situations in the workplace and manage my team better. I’m a much better leader with a higher functioning team after my time with Jason.”
Director of Enterprise Operations, WorldWide Express ($1B+ company)
“Our clinic was struggling to maintain positive morale and it was causing significant challenges. After attending Jason’s workshop, I was able to take his strategies, best practices, and tools and put it into action. After our first team building session, I noticed a significant difference in how the group was communicating and collaborating with each other. Their performance also improved. The transformation has been incredible and continues to grow. Word quickly spread within my company on how successful this experience was so there are plans to use Cards Against Mundanity in other clinics across the nation. I highly recommend any team and organization play his team building game and leverage his expertise. It’s business changing.”
