Get It Together
The purpose of this exercise is to practice clear communication and develop keys to trust during challenging and confusing times. In organizations, workers are often considered students and administrators are usually coaches. This event will remind people in each position what the other role feels like and lend insights to improving relations between the two.
Knot or NOT a Knot
Does the group Stand Together or Stand Apart?
That is the crux of this activity and makes for a great metaphor. Throughout the short activity, individuals will have to make a decision about the length of rope in front of them. Does the pile of rope have a knot, or not?
As the group progresses through a series of these decisions and short activities, they learn that listening to instructions, as well as standing together as a group, is key to their success.
This becomes a fantastic metaphor for the group moving forward and has become a unifying theme for groups that become teams.
The application of the Learning Maze is in every area of our lives. The meaning each group discovers is always different. The basic purpose of the maze comes down to identifying how the team is treating its “mistakes” and the people who are discovering them. Stepping into the unknown is necessary for any team to grow and move ahead, how are they doing in the process? This event will shed some light on the teams process.
Let Go My Ego
The power of each person to influence the success of the team is never clearer than in this activity. Overcoming frustration and resisting the temptation to blame each other will be key to moving the bar in the direction you choose.
People can find themselves sacrificing their integrity and doing the opposite of their intention. The team members must work through frustrations and differences of opinions to solve this magically difficult event. Have fun and don’t blame it on My Ego!
The Perfect Square is another easy event that can be very powerful. 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. Interdependence is clear in this activity and group consensus can be difficult to reach, but very important.
If people in your organization tend to work in isolation or in ‘compartments’, if information sharing or seeking a co-worker’s counsel is non-existent, then you need Team Shackles. Team Shackles can bring about a paradigm shift in attitudes toward fellow workers. The game demonstrates how the whole team can benefit if there is willingness to seek and give help. It will also build confidence within the group and disprove the notion that some things are impossible.
