Team building


I'm in the process of putting together an awayday for a newly formed team in the organisation.

After speaking to the stakeholder, it's clear there are issues with team working and I want to build this into the day.

Does anybody have any fun but meaningful exercises that can be done at different stages of the day, maybe something that can be started as an icebreaker and then developed throughout the day.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Fun team working exercises
    I don’t have any related themes but a couple of exercises I have done in the past are ….

    How many Squares? exercise

    Show delegates a grid of 16 squares (4×4) and count the number of squares they see. Ask them to work individually first and flip their results. Then get them working in twos to discuss the same problem. Again flip their results alongside the original results.

    Point out that the maximum number of circles is 30 (1×1 = 16; 2×2 = 9; 3×3 = 4; 4×4 = 1).

    Discuss the point of the exercise – if you work as a team of 2, it is more productive – in this case, more squares are found on average. More ideas are generated.

    Ther other exercise is called Magic Carpet and if you (or anyone else)are interested, please email me ([email protected])and I’ll send you a brief.
    Hope that helps.
    Happy Days!
