What will the group learn with Let Go My Ego?
This is where many teams fall short. Good communication is the real ‘win’ on this exercise, not actually lowering the bar. If the team can treat each other with respect and maintain open lines of communication while failing, frustrated and somewhat stressed, the team is in great shape.
This problem is exacerbated because each individual is in fact doing their part. Each individual is fulfilling their role and responsibility and yet the entire team is failing to meet the goal. This is where much of the stress and frustration will come from because many individuals will assume that someone is NOT fulfilling their responsibility.
Since the exercise is almost impossible, it will be necessary for the team to try it several times. As the ideas are thrown around, many will simply be discarded without discussing them. A potentially important point of discussion is how the group arrived at a solution and whether any good suggestions were not discussed and why.
Because this event is so difficult, the problem solving and strategizing may become an important aspect for the group to focus on instead of the event itself. This is especially true if the group does well with the communication aspect.
Be sure to have enough time to debrief the exercise and discuss what has happened. If there is not enough time to thoroughly discuss the breakdowns, you should not utilize this event.
If Let Go My Ego gets too serious, stop the event and remind everyone this is supposed to be fun. Use this event as a ‘safe’ exercise to discuss some of the difficulties that are also happening at work.
This event will challenge all groups and will unlock many of the ‘unspoken rules’ to will get the group talking.
Have fun and don’t blame it on Let Go My Ego!
