We structure the event around 3 games called “Mystery Escape”, “Smart People” and “Tangram”.
The participants are divided in teams of 5 to 10. They have limited time to solve a mystery. Each participant has some unique information. This is not a game of chance.
The activity is designed in a way that everyone must participate and plays a role. To win everyone must communicate, listen, analyze.
Each participant has unique information allowing the team to progress: nobody knows everything but everyone knows something others don’t know.
This makes it a fantastic activity not to just to have fun but also to stress the important of team work.
The participants are divided in teams of 5 to 10.
Our activity has several steps, each one focusing on a different ability.
Each team is given a tablet that will provide instructions. It is also used to enter answers, to take photos or make videos.
The teams must find boards (positioned around the room, the campus,… ) used to activate the different sets of challenges, each with a different focus: analytical, observation, performance, creativity, etc.
The ‘winning team’ is the one that leverages best the different abilities (sometimes called ‘talent’) of its members and is a metaphor for a team superior performance when it does it in the workplace.
Imagine that you must give instructions to someone in a language you do not know and he does not know either.
Yet, you have little time to complete the task as you compete with other teams.
The task is a Tangram.
The objective is to form a specific shape using all the pieces, which may not overlap. But we add complexity to the rules by forcing the participants to interact using a language they discover with the challenge.
Guaranteed fun while developing greater awareness about the power and impact of non-verbal communications.
