Leadership Workshop [Games suggestions]
Blindfold rope squareOverview:
The team have 10-15 minutes to create a perfect square shape on the floor using a length of rope whilst blindfolded.
The goal of the exercise is to promote communication between members of the group.Beforehand, we can select a team leader for the task, which will allow them to practise their leadershipskills as well.We can create a scenario, such as: you are in the arctic during winter and it is night time (hence therebeing no light). One of your team is injured and you have to create a square for a helicopter to land inand evacuate him. You have 15 minutes before the weather becomes too severe and the helicoptercant make it. Or something along those lines.
1 x length of rope per group (ideally around 10 metres)
Blindfolds for each member of the group
n open area, free from obstacles (eg, a gym hall or a field)
Blindfold each member of the group2.
Get the group to stand randomly spread out in the area, and make them spin around on thespot for 10 seconds to disorientate them.3.
Coil the rope and lay it next to one of the group members.4.
The group then have to find the rope, and arrange it on the floor to make a perfect squarewhilst blindfolded.5.
The group are timed and have 15 minutes to do this.6.
Once they have done it and are satisfied the clock stops. If they are within time and havecompleted the task they get a clue/ hint for where to find the next task.
Team members are not allowed to remove their blindfolds.
