A REACH Rug is the ideal way to bring REACH to life in your training, presentations and at the office. This bright and colorful rug has been designed to grab the attention of your participants and encourage them to get up and moving. Introducing physical movement into activities has been proven to change mindsets and perspectives.
Below are a few recommended activities that can be used to maximize the impact of the Make it Real REACH Rug.
This activity is ideal for training groups of around 6- 8 participants.
Get your participants to move around the REACH RUG for the “REACH in Two Questions” activity that is available in your REACH Corporate Training Materials.
The REACH Rug can be used with the role-play and fish-bowl activities from your REACH Corporate Training Materials. Using the REACH Rug can provide many variations to your activities and can deliver insightful outcomes. Whilst participating in these activities ask participants to stand in the different quadrants and behave in that style. They can be guided by the style markers that are listed on the REACH Rug in that quadrant. Debriefing activities such as conflict resolution, delegation and customer service can bring some real aha moments to a training session. Imagine the power of an Advisor managing conflict between two Drivers or a Counselor dealing face to face with an irate customer who is a Driver.
The REACH Rug can bring color and life to your office space but most importantly it can bring REACH to top of mind. Keep REACH concepts alive by using this tool with your team reminding them of the various REACH styles and how they can reach others by thinking outside their style.

REACH Caps are the perfect visual tool for participants that want to extend their REACH. They can practice “Thinking” in different REACH styles by incorporating them into almost any group activity. Participants learn to not only appreciate the strengths of their own REACH Style but also of the REACH Styles of others. REACH Caps were originally designed for an activity called “Thinking in Color” which we have provided here.
Extend the learning outcomes of your interactive activities and role-playing by Thinking in Color with Learn to REACH Caps. Allocate a REACH Cap to each of your participants that is NOT their REACH Style/Quadrant. When wear the particular REACH Cap for the activity or role play they must focus on behaving and “thinking” in that particular REACH Style/Quadrant.
Having participants act and think as a different REACH Style/Quadrant that is not the way they would usually behave or approach a problem, they learn to appreciate the different communication , conflict handing , delegating, planning and learning styles of others that will allow them to increase their REACH.
TIP: If you have time try and get your participants to think in at least two different REACH styles/quadrants and ensure that you do a debrief at the end of each session to discuss the insights they have gathered from REACHing into a style/quadrant that is not their own.

Build confidence, awareness of self, appreciation of diversity, collaboration and team synergy with the Play to our strengths REACH Cards. Originally created as part of a Productive People Advantage Course (PPA). This card activity promotes self- reflection, personal, leadership and cultural growth as well as building REACH within participants.
Below are the instructions on how to use Play to our Strengths REACH Cards in a game called Strengths Poker.
In Strengths Poker, participants aim to end up with 3 cards that resonate most with themselves.
To start the game they are dealt 7 cards, and start by discarding the 2 that ‘speak’ to them least, then depending on how you want to play the game (and how long you have) they discard and pick up and trade with other players.
In the trading with other players, you encourage two dialogues “I see you have a _____ card, I relate to that well, can I trade you for a _____ card, which can go on for a round or two if you have plenty of time. People can refuse and discuss why they refuse that specific trade.
The most impactful interpersonal (Team Synergy and REACH building) dialogue comes with the later round(s) where a person offers a card to someone else – “I have a ‘trustworthy’ card – I am offering this to you because how you talk, what you do and when you did ______ the other day it demonstrated to me that you are trustworthy, and I appreciate and admire that about you” (trust worthy is just an example, this could also be inspirational, creative, warm etc).
A round or two Strengths Poker of this usually brings up tears where people are expressing admiration and receiving gratitude in a way they don’t normally do. Both perspectives are equally impactful.
- Each Pack has 56 Strengths Cards
- Made from a sturdy high gloss playing card stock
- Larger Card Size of 62mm x 100mm (Trump Card Size)
Keep it Alive REACH Cubes build empathy and grow an appreciation for thinking differently. They encourage productive and positive interactions in the workplace, workshop or personal development sessions. They can be used in any creative way to grow REACH and below are a few recommended activities that can be used to maximize the impact of the REACH Cubes.
When your participants are taking part in workshops, training and personal development sessions change up the thinking by providing them with a REACH Cube. The participants then use the information on the cube to guide their thinking, behaviors and interactions with others. What cube have they been allocated and what cubes do others have?
Advisor Cube: Focused on detail and doing?
Coach Cube: Focused on People and Action?
TIP: Allocate participants a REACH Cube that is not their REACH Style encourage empathy building and appreciation for the strength of thinking differently.
After REACH has been introduced using the REACH Training participants can keep REACH alive in their workplace by taking a set of Keep it Alive REACH Cubes back to their workspace.
By using the Keep it Alive REACH Cubes on a regular basis, participants personal REACH and the REACH of those around can be grown with these great ideas:
Stack the REACH Cubes on your desk and on top of the stack place the cube that is reflecting your current REACH zone.
Ensure that you have the side that says “Thanks for dropping by, right now I am in my __________ quadrant” facing outward so those approaching your work space know how you are feeling and acting at that current time.
This is designed to help those around you recognise different behaviors/responses they may or may not receive from you based on the situation and REACH zone.
Use your REACH Cubes to be mindful of your interactions with others.
Whilst interacting use the cubes to review your behaviors and actions. Take up the cube of the quadrant you currently feel you are in and review these sides:
Think Before I Act: Is this what I need to be right now?
Flip the cube over to the side of the profile overview and think about the style in which you are Communicating, Conflict-handling, Delegating etc.
Is this what you need to be to REACH the person you are interacting with?
If not find the REACH Cube that best suits the situation and maximizes your REACH with that person and use the profile overview on the cube to help guide your interaction.
