Select a certified facilitator and schedule a game. Play as often as you’d like, but we recommend playing at least monthly to receive maximum value. Games take 90 minutes or less.
Players answer questions and vote on how open, honest, and transparent the responses are. There are no right or wrong answers. Much is revealed about oneself and others during gameplay. Randomization, question ambiguity, bonus points, and the ability to ask follow-up questions bring out authenticity within players.
Reflect on your experience. Discover how your learnings from the game impacted you and document your personal and team goals.
“I was most surprised by the authenticity and individuality of the program. Whereas most team-building programs feel forced and uncomfortable (and often exclusionary), KeepWOL made it surprisingly easy to feel engaged with, and truly heard and acknowledged by co-workers.”
“This program isn't "corporate" in the sense that it's the same questions of "what do you do? Where are you from? What do you want from this team?". The game format made it more fun. The questions were unique and thought provoking.”
“The idea that stood out the most was the "homework" that came from the additional lessons that were recommended based off of the things we were most interested to learn more about.”
“It's a simple platform that is easy to jump in and start using immediately. It forced the entire team to pay attention. Pushed members to engage and allowed the space to bring up and understand team issues that some are afraid to bring up on their own. Dedicate the time and you'll see improved team communication and engagement.”
“The conversations connect week to week and also continue out of the sessions and into our workday. I really like how KeepWOL keeps everyone engaged with the follow up questions, bonus points, and personal and team goals.”
“My favorite feature of KeepWOL is the fact that it is a game. I feel like it helps my team engage more.”
“KeepWOL was the perfect tool to build staff rapport during an unprecedented time. Remote work has caused some stress for our team, and KeepWOL has allowed us to build a closer bond.”
“KeepWOL is a warm, experience-based take on what our office has tried to do with personality assessments. The game format offers an engaging and fun way for teams to build camaraderie, share rich experiences and in turn strengthen team bonds. I found myself moving through a gamut of emotions as I learned deep truths about the other participants. KeepWOL was fresh, lively, and most of all, fun!”
“KeepWOL provides a clean, interactive, and fun approach to team development. I particularly enjoyed how easy it is to ask follow-up questions and get below the surface level that most teams hover above. I’d recommend it to teams who want an easy and effective way to build connections and creativity.”
“The facilitation was so natural and felt inclusive; structured to keep participants organized but lots of room for individual sharing and group learning. My favorite feature is the layered questioning format - good reminder that it's useful not just for business conversation but for getting to know one another as people.”
“KeepWOL is a fun, insightful, and creative. It’s a simple yet effective approach to talent development that provides genuine laughs with the team.”
““Phenomenal platform that creates a safe place for very direct, heart of the matter discussions.”
“KeepWOL is a great way to foster engagement and have meaningful conversations about working together and finding solutions to problems.”
“KeepWOL is the perfect vehicle to get people talking. I love how participants asked follow-up questions that challenged everyone to dig-in and respond thoughtfully.”
“KeepWOL is a simple way to organize true team building in a way that still feels organic and allows people to build trust with others.”

This game focuses on the "Storming" stage of team development. The storming stage is the most critical and challenging.

Inclusion requires all parties to partake in the conversation. Activities where the audience is spoken to, instead of with, results in participants failing to absorb the content.
Escape rooms, trivia & happy hours are fun ways to spend a few hours, but they rarely rectify the issues that lead to tension between teammates.
A lack of effective tools and processes that normalize open communication and trust in the workplace will derail any attempts at building long-lasting high performing teams.
True honesty only occurs when people feel that they will be accepted and heard as their entire self.
Communication starts with curiosity. People must be able to ask questions without fear of negative repercussions.
Regular opportunities to develop and practice interpersonal skills builds loyalty and trust between team members.
