Cooperate to Lead

Cooperation, Teamwork and Leadership Skills and Their Impact On Children's Emotional Wellbeing

John Donne said it best: “No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.” Development of children's cooperation skills result in reduced conflicts (peer pressure, bullying) and improved social relationship, as well as good preparation for leadership. Through realistic interactive social problem solving, curaFUN programs train youth to collaborate, seek cooperation from others, think flexibly and positively and negotiate.

Social Skill

Interactive Social Problem Solving

According to Swiss psychologist Piaget, children begin the transition out of egocentrism when they begin to recognize the existence and feelings of those around them. This process can be encouraged and nurtured with curaFUN’s products, which replicate natural gamified environments and give children the opportunity to practice.

Common challenges like deciding whether to work alone or work with others appear in gameplay to allow children the chance to learn by trial and error and internalize new concepts and better alternative problem-solving strategies.

Children who find it difficult to cooperate at an early age can face problems in developing healthy relationships later in life and struggle in their careers. Edward Norton is a great example: despite his talent as an actor, he has missed out on career-changing opportunities like the role of the Hulk in the new Marvel movies because of his notorious inability to cooperate on set.
