Many team building exercises focus on getting participants to interact with each other in solving a problem or becoming better at communication. The problems are usually solvable by teamwork, creativity and persistence.

This exercise has a twist on traditional team building exercises. The task is simply too difficult, maybe even impossible. The aim of this exercise is to test the participants on a critical skill; the ability to realise their limitations, ask for help and think out of the box and possibly break traditional rules.

Our culture often demands that people must follow rules, sometimes even blindly. As a result an individual requires a strong self-esteem and confidence to challenge the status-quo or even lead others in a particular cause against the established norm. This exercise is ideal for improving this particular skill.

Self-esteem Exercise: Accepting your Emotions

Self-esteem Exercise: Accepting your Emotions
Exercises, Assertiveness, Coaching, Emotional Intelligence, Self-esteem

Article Rating:::: 24 Ratings :::: Monday, August 6, 2012

All of us go through some experiences in life where we feel victimised or wronged. The negative emotions and feelings generated by these experiences can stay with us for a long time afterwards and make us feel overtly emotional, weak, stupid or even unworthy. One way to deal with this emotional baggage is to acknowledge it and take responsibility for it. The idea here is that sharing difficult experiences and the feelings generated by them will allow delegates to acknowledge them to another person and therefore more easily come into terms with them.

Boost Self-Esteem and Confidence

Boost Self-Esteem and Confidence
Exercises, Anger Management, Goal Setting, Giving Feedback, Self-esteem

Article Rating:::: 29 Ratings :::: Monday, October 24, 2011

This exercise is useful in showing people how resourceful they already are. People who suffer from lack of self-esteem tend to focus on their weaknesses or to blame others for their problems. This lack of belief in their abilities makes them less confident which in turn confirms their negative beliefs. Most of their energy is then spent figuring out who did wrong and who is to blame.

This exercise helps to break this cycle by highlighting that everyone has certain resources and strengths that they can tap into. When a person doesn’t see his strengths, he starts to develop a defeatist personality. This exercise helps bring positive strengths and qualities to surface, kick starting a more positive view of life.

A leader’s performance is defined by how he or she leads others. For others to follow a leader, it is critical for them to know that they are valued. The sense of significance and knowing that what they do has a benefit to the overall objective is a significant motivation. Hence, leaders must actively and routinely take steps to show that they value their team members and that team members’ effort are well appreciated.

This exercise helps delegates to learn how to achieve this as leaders. It encourages specific actions on their behalf as opposed to vague strategies, so that they know precisely what to do for each member of their team.
