Ideas for Activities at Manager Away day


I am looking for possible fun activites to use during a management away day. We are focusing on managers adopting the new culture change and would like the activities to be focused around this topic, and /or that will generate some energy(approx 4 teams, max 5/team). I'd appreciate any help and advice anyone can provide!

  1. NLP Toolkit
    Many activities from the NLP toolkit might help. Try some ideas from as a starter for 10. Alternatively I can recommend a session facilitated by Peter Freeth ( – a very cost effective expert in doing these things for a wide range of companies.


  2. John Adair
    I have always found that John Adair team building activities are really good value and timeless

  3. Buttermilk
    The best activity I have come across with a “change” theme is called “The Buttermilk Activity”. For brief instructions go here:
    I prefer to add a couple variants in the activity. Have 3 “leaders” and 3 “resistors” per group along with observers. There really isn’t a need for supporters unless it fits your goals.
    A great twist is to add blue food coloring to the buttermilk through a syringe and not let them open the buttermilk until they agree to drink. This adds another dimension for getting a change different than what was expected. The discussions afterwards can be incredible when related to your organization. Good luck!
