At Le Day Job, I've created a role-play exercise, CRITIQUE THIS ELEPHANT, to teach better design critique skills to my coworkers.
Half the group were designers with a design to be critiqued (in this case an incorrectly drawn elephant). The other half were critics. Each critic had instructions to embody a bad critiquing practice. We then roleplayed critiquing the elephants, with a facilitator correcting the critics on unhelpful feedback.
Anyone else used roleplay to train coworkers?

That Nordic larp about alcoholism where you die when the bottle is empty is still the best game mechanic I've ever seen.
