This is an energetic improv game that can be used anytime during a training session. My favourite time to use it is at the end of a session for debriefing. Participants pair up and stand back-to-back. The facilitator asks a question. The participants turn around and face each other and take turns sharing their responses.
To encourage reflection and debriefing of a training session. To provide an opportunity for structured sharing and networking in an active and fun fashion.
- Pair-up participants. Ask each pair to stand back-to-back. If there is an extra person, they can form a group of three.
- Ask a debriefing question. Some debriefing questions you may want to consider are:
- What do you think was the most important point in today's session?
- What do you think will be the most challenging idea to implement when you go back to the workplace?
- What do you think will be the easiest idea to implement when you go back to the workplace?
- Which idea do you think will receive the most resistance?
- Which idea will you implement first?
- What questions do you still have about this topic?
- The person whose birthday is next in the calendar year will share first.
- The person who travels the furthest to work will share first.
- The person who has the most, (oldest, youngest) children (pets, car) will share first.
