Very meaningful exercise!
Incredible how much you learn about yourself and your team.
A session on collaboration and connection
For teams who want to learn about their collaboration through playful methods in order to increase their efficiency and mutual trust.
Teams are under increasing pressure. The new ways of working have created more distance between team members. There is hardly any room for informal conversations, so the glue between team members is quietly disappearing. This has a direct impact on the team's results.
The session starts with a playful work format, in order to stimulate the fun and creativity of the team.
In addition, Debbie reveals your team dynamics:
- How do you work toward a goal?
- How do you make decisions?
- How do you deal with failing and learning?
- How do you take each other's opinions into consideration?
- How do you deliberate?
A facilitated team session using playful work forms, to reveal team dynamics.
One of the options is Stringball:
Half of the participants put on a blindfold. The "blind" are instructed to carry a ball on a metal ring from one base to the other. They are not allowed to touch the ring directly. Instead, they transport the ball using a set of ropes attached to the ring. The "sighted" lead the whole process by coordinating the movements of the "blind". All communication is done by speaking. Dropping the ball during transport is punished in a way that the trainer and the group see fit ;)

What do others say about this workshop?
"Very surprising how such a simple game reveals the essence of collaboration!"
"We had a good time, but above all we learned a lot"
"Being the "worker bee" instead of the leader revealed many insights to me"
"Standing there blindfolded and alone, not knowing what was going to happen, I suddenly understood very well that people disengage if you don't involve them enough."
