A team storytelling exercise
People who work in a team, can be from any level of an organization. The participants should be fluent in the language in which the exercise is done.
Creative, preferably humorous, facilitator.
Start by having someone decide upon a title, and then let someone start telling a story, whenever anyone feels like taking over they can enter in the story mid-sentence.
The story can be evaluated, and feedback can be given on useful or non-useful additions to the story.
Usual or Expected Outcomes: When done for the first time, usually a somewhat incoherent but entertaining story will be the result.
Potential pitfalls: Lack of creativity or a sense of shame among participants.
How success is evaluated: By seeing whether people are adding to each others ideas, and letting each other develop a story.
Examples of successes and failures: A good story can be made and people will feel a high of cooperation. A story can also end because people steer towards the wrong direction and end up with an incoherent story of nonsense.
