How the Quest Works

The Collaboration Quest is a chat-based, coaching-like experience that drives meaningful conversations, powerful ideas, and "a-ha!" moments around innovation. This approach enables the rapid, lasting adoption of innovative behaviors in your organization. We do this by:



Completions indicate that users have awareness and understanding of a topic.



Positive activation checks show that users have followed through and taken specific actions.



Insights demonstrate that users have reflected on their experiences in a way that reinforces the desired mindsets.

Social Engagement

'Likes' and comments tell us that a user's insights are positively impacting others in the group and are initiating social learning.

The Challenges

A collaborative team is built on a sense of community and shared goals. A recent study by Salesforce found that 86% of employees and executives cite the lack of collaboration or ineffective communication as reasons for workplace failures. Our Collaboration Quest activates managers to foster effective communication, identify individual strengths, share knowledge, and celebrate team wins. The 10 challenges encourage participants to take concrete actions that lead to improved collaboration, as well as team and organizational success.

Share the Company Mission

Give your team a reason to show up each day – a cause to be part of, and a broader objective to work toward.


Communicate Goals and Expectations

If your team doesn't know that you want them to work together, you can't expect them to do so.


Promote a Community Working Environment

A sense of community is crucial for collaborative working environments. 54% of employees state that a strong sense of community led them to stay at a company longer than was in their own interests.


Highlight Individual Strengths

Let your team know that their individual efforts are impactful and are appreciated.


Foster Honest and Open Communication

Team collaboration is built upon open and honest communication. The more comfortable people feel within the team, the more ideas they'll share, and the more productive the team will become.


Share Knowledge, Insights, and Resources

Knowledge is power. And if knowledge is shared amongst your team, they'll feel more empowered to contribute.


Lead by Example

Teams learn by example. Do as you say and say as you do, and this will filter down to your team.


Facilitate a Team Building Exercise

Games are one of the best ways to build new relationships and amend old ones.


Break Down Silos

Breaking down company silos can help team members reach out with valuable suggestions and feedback that will help streamline a company's processes.


Celebrate and Reward Teamwork

Celebrating key achievements – and the collaborative efforts that led to them – brings team members together and makes them feel a sense of belonging to something larger than themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Yes. Our quests drive the adoption of new behaviors and habits, and the best way to do this is by giving people the opportunity to practice and repeat.

    We do this in the form of a 10-day Quest. Each day, for the duration of the Quest, a participant accepts a bite-sized challenge. The challenge will introduce an offline activity to complete between online sessions. Once complete, a user will then come back and reflect on the experience of trying new behaviors. Reflecting on our experiences drives behavior change in a short time.

  • Designated administrators will have access to the "Manage" section of Cognician, which is our reporting dashboard.

    The "Manage" section gives administrators a collection of helpful information about participants and their activities on the platform. For example, every time someone uses a cog (short for "coaching guide", which is what we call a learning module at Cognician), the system logs their actions so that administrators can view the learner’s journey, how many cogs have been completed, and where the team seems to be struggling.

    Administrators can monitor general participant progress and export CSV documents that contain cog completion data and even the insights shared by the users.

  • Yes. We have a variety of Quests available, tailored to help you activate behavior change when it matters.
