Get2Yes is a rewarding online negotiation game designed for Facebook and other platforms that helps empower young people with conflict resolution techniques. Using a webcam, players can compete against either their friends or against other players around the world using the Get2Yes network.
Through the experience of playing Get2Yes, users learn the techniques of nonviolent (or collaborative) communication, a conflict resolution process that helps users integrate self-empathy, empathy for others, and honest self-expression.
Get2Yes is fun, empowering and thoroughly addictive. Here’s how it works:
1.Create a community profile informed by data from a poll about your communication and negotiation style.
2.Complete incremental trainings followed by match-ups against your existing or new friends within the network.
a.Training sessions offer animated explanations, video examples and interactive exercises to impart the tools of nonviolent communication, and various negotiation modalities (competition, compromise, collaboration) taken from influential books like Getting to Yes, by Roger Fisher and William L. Ury.
b.Match-ups reinforce the lessons learned and enable you to apply and test your skills against your peers. Voice recognition and AI software help to serve as a mediator, and generate scores for effective communication techniques and outcomes.
3.Gain experience points based on both effort and outcome, and ultimately earn rewards from sponsors like iTunes, Amazon and Chipotle.
4.Take on Get2Yes champions in monthly competitions and earn a chance to win grand prizes, or even the opportunity to interview at top companies looking for young, skilled negotiators and advocates.
