Make your team meetings memorable #3

Team Building Games 3#: Creative Activity

Creative team building games give team members the opportunity to try something new and to learn a skill. This sort of creative activity can be used to develop innovative thinking and problem solving skills.  Having a creative approach to problem solving is a highly desirable skill which can improve your teams performance.

Say it: Draw it

Purpose: Improve communication and listening skills and build team relationships.

What you will need: You will need sheets of blank paper, pencils, and a series of flashcard pictures. (If possible, find pictures of objects or equipment that are relevant to your company.)

How to play: First, divide your team into pairs. Next, ask each pair to sit back to back. Then give each person a letter A or B. Person A is given a flashcard picture and person B is given a piece of paper and pencil. “A” describes the picture so that person B can draw it. Place a time limit of two or three minutes on the exercise. When the time is up person B has to guess what person A is describing. “B” signs the picture and labels the drawing #1 and leaves the drawing with person A

Extending the exercise: Person A remains sitting; person B moves TWO places to their right and sits back to back with their new partner. Next, person A describes the same picture to their new partner repeating the steps above. Person B labels this drawing #2 and leaves the drawing with person A

 

The exercise is designed to develop communication skills and listening skills. Compare the drawings #1 to #5. How do they change as person A repeats the descriptions?
