Icebreaker: Who is That

Icebreaker: Who is That
:: Article Rating :: Games, Exercises, Team Building, Exercises for Kids, Diversity, Personal Impact

Use this icebreaker to help delegates get to know each other better. You can also use the training exercises as a test to see who knows most about others. It is fairly easy to run. You can customise the exercise by changing the questions provided in the “About Me Form”. For example, you can increase the number of work-related or project-related questions to bias the exercise towards a specific direction.

If you run this exercise for people who don’t know each other at all, it would work like a test on stereotyping and first impressions. In other words, the person who identifies most people’s qualities correctly, when he has never met them before, must have a sharp eye in paying attention to detail and a good judgment in placing people in society with respect to their interests. This can be a fascinating training topic to explore at the end of the exercise.

Goal Setting Exercise: Role Models
:: Article Rating :: Exercises, Coaching, Motivation, Goal Setting, Appraisal

This exercise is ideal to explore role models and the importance and significant of having one. Instead of trying to explain directly how useful role models are, the exercise takes an indirect approach by simply getting delegates feel excited about their role models or feel the excitement of others when they talk about theirs. Such discussions can inspire the participants to look more closely at role models and if they have not thought of one so far, choose one during the exercise.

Team Building Exercise: What Makes a Team Succeed or Fail

Team Building Exercise: What Makes a Team Succeed or Fail
:: Article Rating :: Leadership, Exercises, Team Building, Goal Setting

This exercise helps delegates examine their teamwork and what makes it succeed or fail. It is powerful because rather than telling a team how they should behave you can ask them to evaluate their own success. Since they come up with the qualities themselves, they are more likely to be aware of these qualities and remember them in the future, which in turn will increase the chances of success for their teams.

You can run this exercise for delegates from the same team or those who have different teams.
