Teamwork builds trust and trust builds efficiency
— Anon

This session is made up of a series of short (and fun!) team exercises with detailed debriefs following each one to explore and cement the learning points.

We focus on team dynamics, role allocation and trust.

The exercises we use totally absorb the participants and they tend to revert to their "norm" in terms of team behaviour. This makes the exercises completely relevant to their behaviour in their jobs. 

Exercises used include: Marshmallow Spaghetti Tower, Egg Drop, Minefield, The Perfect Square. 

Following the exercises and the debriefs, teams present to each other on the key learning points. 

At the end of this session the participants will:

  • have a better understanding of team dynamics in teamwork situations
  • understand the importance of segregated roles in a team
  • have built trust with their teammates in time-pressured situations
