Do Looks Matter?

This activity illustrates the point that people often react based on how they are treated by others. It makes participants aware that if they treat team members with respect that they may be more productive and cooperative.

Create groups of at least 12 people. Create a smaller deck of cards that contains an even amount of each suit so that all four suits will be evenly distributed.

Have each participant draw a card and immediately have the team-building organiser tape it to their backs before they see it.

Human Knot

Make a human knot to build leadership skills. Get everyone in the group together and have them put one hand out and grab someone else's hand. Then have everyone put their other hand out and grab someone else's hand. Their goal is to figure out how to untangle themselves so that they end up in a big circle, without releasing their grips. Leaders will arise when people take charge to help get everyone untangled.
