Apcalpyse Hal - Social Circles
Knowing who is talking to who in the zoo!
Surviving zombies takes more than a sharp machete, it takes leadership. One useful leadership tool is plotting out how close people are socially. Start by placing the names of your band of survivors in a circle. Then start drawing lines connecting those that get along well socially.
Thin lines indicate a low level of social interaction between two people, but more than just being polite and saying G'day. We are talking people who willing chat and do things together outside the daily tasks of hacking zombies and cooking up roadkill. Use thick lines where there is a very strong level of social interaction. They may be BFFs or family or romantically involved.If the person is pretty aloof and doesn't socialise much then don't add a line.
Using this chart you can work out all kinds of things that may be going on in your group, including if fractions are developing which could challenge your leadership.
By the way this is really fun to do at work.
Bite off more than you can chew
