This exercise has been designed for people who work in the same team. It is very effective in discovering strengths and weaknesses of teams, in particular those of newly formed teams. This activity allows team members to share their views on positive and negative aspects of their team and therefore seek ways to improve them.

What You Need

  • A flip chart or white board
  • Marker pens


  • Draw a vertical line in the middle of the flipchart sheet or white board, dividing it into two equal parts.
  • Write Positive on top of one column and Negative on top of the other.
  • Explain to delegates that each has to come up to the board and write one positive and one negative thing about their team.
  • Repeat until everyone in the team had a go.


Explaining the Test: 5 minutes.

Activity: 10 minutes

Group Feedback: 10 minutes.
