In this exercise, delegates will have an opportunity to share their personalities with others. Sometimes stating our principles to others is the best way to show our true beliefs. This exercise accelerates the process of getting to know each other and can act as an icebreaker as well. It is also ideal for people who have worked together before and want to strengthen their relationship or understand each other more. It is also ideal for team building events.
