We structure the event around 3 games called “Tangram”, “Associate” and “Escape”
- “Tangram” - Focus on non verbal communication
Tangram was invented in China, it is often called ‘Chinese Puzzle’ in the west.
The objective is to form a specific shape using all the pieces, which may not overlap. But we add complexity to the rules to force the participants to interact using non verbal communication.
The participants have a lot of fun while developing greater awareness about the power and impact of non verbal communications.
- “Associate” - Focus on Cultural Connections.
The participants are divided in teams: some must make others find specific words with another single word as hint. The fastest team to find all the required words wins.
While they will enjoy themselves, they will also appreciate how hard it is to find a common reference between persons of different generation, background or culture.
- “Escape” - Focus on Team Dialog, similar to an “Escape room”
The participants are divided in teams of 5 to 10. They must find a important notebook in a ‘specific (virtual) location’ with little time to exit.
This is not a game of chance, but of wit, analysis and dialog. The first team to find the notebook and exit the location wins.
The activity is such that everyone must participate and plays a role. To win they must communicate, listen, analyze. Each participant has a unique information that allow the team to progress: nobody knows everything, everyone knows something.
This is a fantastic activity not to just to have fun but also to stress the important of team work.
