EQ-Workout, the soft-skill development game

Welcome to EQ-Workout™, the leading board game for Emotional Intelligence development! This game is developed for team building, soft skill training or just for having a jolly good time as a team incentive.

The creator, Gabor Nagy has 15 years experience in facilitating team building and leadership development workshops. He is a proponent of experiential learning, and he is continuously on the look for new games. Once he was engaged in the development of an emotional intelligence questionnaire when he saw a game about emotions for children. A mind filled with psychometric data suddenly found itself in the colorful world of games. The lightning struck and the seed of the game was born.



EQ-Workout™ is a fast moving, engaging game that improves the ability to understand emotions, the ability to listen to others and empathize with them, and the ability to express emotions productively. The game is easy to play and brings people into that special state of being both relaxed and excited where learning and team bonding happens at an accelerated pace.

EQ-Workout is a playful learning tool and a game with the science behind at the same time. It develops the fundamental building blocks of Emotional Intelligence: Self-Awareness and Social Awareness by enhancing Emotional Literacy, which includes higher awareness and enhanced sensitivity to distinguish between various states, and a rich emotional vocabulary to accurately label emotions. It helps in enhancing participants influencing skills and improving the quality of their relationships and co-operation with others. About the game:

  • 3-6 people can play with one set;
  • It can be played without a facilitator. Open the box, follow the one-pager game rules, and you will be playing smoothly in five minutes;
  • Playing time is flexible, typically 45-90 minutes, and allocate about an extra 15 minutes for discussions;
  • Game sessions can be repeated without getting bored;
  • Trainers and Facilitators can use the game as a learning activity for practicing a range of soft-skills: empathy, listening, observation, presentation, storytelling, and of course emotional intelligence. One facilitator can manage a large number of playing groups at the same time;
  • A Facilitator Guide helps facilitators to deliver the game smoothly in various contexts and to deliver a more valuable learning.



A great learning tool and a fantastic gift for your teams!
