Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I picked up somewhere that before Sweden entered the 30-years war, the king arranged a series of debates where he issued roles (though I think it was mainly pro et contra) to his advisers. It ended in entering the war, which probably was the right decision from their pow.

To take more recent and similar activities I have participated in role-playing exercises where the goal was to better understand a situation through assigning different positions. In some ways that resembled the compass.

I think it would be very interesting to try the compass method in a workshop. I'm happy to hear of your experiences, because we need more of this imo. Empathy is a casualty of capitalism - any method for experiencing and understanding empathy is useful and evolutionary.

My own baseline for consulting on communications with different companies always, as far as possible, stands on their particular audience. There are always perceptual people at the other side of the dialogue, and empathy is a very important method of communicating with them - if it is genuine.
