This exercise allows participants to recognise and appreciate the range of talents and achievements each individual brings to the team. Identifying and acknowledging individual abilities increases team members confidence in what they can accomplish as a group.


Delegates to identify and record their individual qualities and achievements and recognise their contributions as team members.

What You Need

  • A sheet of flipchart paper
  • Marker pens


  • Divide the group into teams of 3 to 4 people.

  • Having discussed the experience or the story, the team should decide on the quality and strength of character shown by that delegate.
  • They should write two qualities for that person on paper.
    • For example, if David has successfully negotiated a deal with an important client in the past, negotiation skills should be written on the paper.
