Team Building Exercises for small group

default-16x9

There is a mix of issues which need to be addressed - communication, sharing of information and knowledge, "I'm better than you are cos I've been here longer", etc.

  1. activity suggestion
    Hello Anne-Marie
    I can suggest a number of activities for this but the best one that comes to mind right now is an exercise wher you split into groups of four. Each four is tasked with the same job (make one up that’s relevant) then tell them one of the four can talk, one can use their hands another can use their legs and one must be blindfolded throughout.

    The one that is blindfolded represents the new person (not been there long) and how hard it is to really fulfill your role when not fully kept in the loop!

    I have many others in this field if you need more for a different specific objective? Ctc me through my website @www.peopletreetraining.co.uk and I’d be more than happy to share.

  2. Murder at Glasstap Grange
    You might want to consider our exercise, Murder at Glasstap Grange, which is available through Training Zone or from Trainers’ Library (www.trainerslibrary.com). It sounds like it will be ideal for the situation you have.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Website link
    I have used a couple of games from the following website at a team day. They are more about getting people to work together effectively than specifics for the organisation, but team poker and song writing seemed to go down very well and if you choose the group members strategically and mix unlikely types together it can be very effective at bridging gaps. Here’s the link: http://www.businessballs.com/teambuildinggames.htm Thanks, Vanessa Newell

  4. Resources
    Hi Ann Marie
    There are many exercises or games which I have used over the years but some are more appropriate than others.There is a book or bible that I sometimes consult and you may find this useful, it is called The Winning Trainer by Julius E. Eitington and published by BH.
