Wortkarg

Situation: Kooperationsstörungen in der Gruppe. Man geht zu wenig aufeinander ein. Jeder denkt nur an sich. Der Reihe nach sagt jeder nur ein Wort. Nach und nach entwickelt entwickelt sich eine Geschichte.

Five ideas

noun_855243_B36AE2.png

Five Ideas is an activity that encourages participants to go beyond what is good for their team or their department and work on cooperatively achieving common goals.

Teambuilding activities create high-performance teams whose members are extremely loyal to each other and to their team. Sometimes, however, the emphasis in teamwork results in reduced collaboration across teams. Similar problems occur when employees become so focused on their departmental goals that they ignore or downplay the strategic goals for the total organization.

My Favourite Manager

noun_1236200_F38F19.png
Participants work individually, assuming the roles of three different people and brainstorming their perceptions of three most favourite managers and three least favourite managers. Later, they work with a partner (and still later, in teams) to prepare a list of dos and don't-s for improving employees' perception of a manager's style.

The Desert Island

Many of us have played a game similar to this before - if you were stranded on a desert island, what essential items would you choose to survive?

Participants are given a list of items to choose from and must work together to decide which items will help them stay alive.

A great, remote-friendly exercise for a team to work together and share opinions.

Trust Battery

This self-assessment activity allows you and your team members to reflect on the ‘trust battery’ they individually have towards each person on the team, and encourages focus on actions that can charge the depleted trust batteries.
