Energisers for a group of L&D Business Ptners


I am writing a session aimed at a group of Learning and Development Business Partners (experience ranging from 6 months to 15 years).

The session Is aimed at introdcung the group to an new Management Development Programme which we are rolling out to the business.

The outcomes I am looking from the day are that: people understand the programme, they understand their role in "championing" the programme and understand the benefits of the programme to the business.

I am looking for a fun, challenging energiser to start the day - and remember being L&D people they are likely to have done all the standard ones!

Any Ideas would be gratefully received. Thanks in advamce

  1. Jigsaw exercise
    Write down some words and phrases about the new programme. Use random shapes, colours and sizes of font. Add some images if that is appropriate. Do it in powerpoint so that things can be at different angles. Then do the same again but with the words at different angles.
    Now print these two pages back-to-back on card. Then cut out the card as a jigsaw.
    On the day give everyone a piece and ask them to collectively assemble the jigsaw but without letting go of their piece.
    It is fun, reasonably challenging (depending on how many pieces and how you cut them out) and is also sybolic of what you will subsequently be doing.
    At the end of the session you can show the powerpoint slide as part of your conclusion.

  2. The Human Knot
    I have used this energiser on a number of occasions to illustrate: teamwork; working towards common objectives; importance of communication etc. It has tons of milage and, although gets everyone actively involved, is easily managable by a diverse group – have even used it with a delegate in a wheelchair … fascinating stuff! Easier to explain it to you over the phone, so you are welcome to give me a call: 0771 722 0993
    Kind regards
