The Perfect Square is another easy event that can be very powerful because of the experience the group will go through. Incredibly simplistic in design, most groups do not take the time to plan correctly or set groundrules for communication, which will create frustration levels due to the lack of clear communication.

The leadership that will emerge and the group participation (or lack thereof) will always reveal interesting insights and draw out learning from the team members. Often, the leadership role will not change, even to the detriment of the team and accomplishing the exercise. Does this sound similar to work? The comment most often heard is that the leader wanted to give up the role, but felt uncomfortable telling the team they did not know what to do. Similarly, the team was frustrated with the leader due to lack of direction. Sound similar yet?

Obviously, this does not happen in every group, but often once certain 'rules' are created, spoken or unspoken, they are difficult to break even when the team wants to.

Interdependence is clear in this activity and group consensus can be difficult to reach, but very important. Also, the need for open and controlled communication is necessary to accomplish the task.

This is definitely not a run-around, get-warmed-up and have fun exercise. But it is extremely valuable and has been a favorite for years.

This exercise runs equally well inside and outside.
