Teambuilding and Leadership “Tasks”- for purchase to D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself)

In our courses we use a variety of "Tasks" which we have created ourselves, so can easily modify, including when a client wishes to purchase a task to deliver training themselves. So we are making available some of our most popular Tasks which we don’t just provide "off the shelf". We discuss a client's needs and refine the Tasks to meet them.

The Moonlanding - 60 minutes

- indoors - 60 minutes - 4 to 6 in each team - £250 

A great task for helping people engage with each other and learn and practise key skills - especially LISTENING and DEBATING as well as TEAMWORKING. In Part 1 individuals (without colluding) choose 12 out of 30 items to take with them on a mission to the moon and then, in Part 2, having made individual choices, the team (or selected teams) must discuss and AGREE on 12 items to take - and prioritise them! If there are 2 or more teams, Part 3 is where the WHOLE group must discuss and agree a priority list! 

 

How Good Are We at Teamwork?

- indoors - 60 minutes - for a whole team - £250 

In preparation for this Task ideally EVERY member of the team (even those not attending) must anonymously complete a questionnaire scoring 12 "symptoms" of effective teamwork. The team leader or whoever is going to facilitate the meeting, then collates the scores to identify the team's strengths and weaknesses. The results are then presented to the team for discussion and debate and, hopefully, AGREEMENT on an action plan on how to improve.

Experiential Profiling (leadership, teamwork or selling)

 - indoors - 60 minutes - 4 to 8 delegates ideally - £300 

The facilitator issues laminated Reference Cards and explains the principles of Experiential Profiling (from detailed Tutor's Brief) Team members then pair up to each select 2 or 3 "Personality Types" from each of the Bright AND Dark sides that best describe how they believe they project as personalities. There is then a round table "group therapy" session with each individual learning HOW they can maximise their individual effectiveness.

The Lego Tower

- indoors - 60 to 90 minutes - for teams of 4 to 6 - £400 for two kits - extra £100 each

The aim for this task is to maximise PROFIT. Each team is issued with a box of Lego pieces and 3 Profit Graphs illustrating how much money they would earn depending on how many bricks they use, the height of their tower and the time they take to build it. It requires real teamworking, especially in challenging the ASSUMPTIONS people WILL be making! And as a Leadership task, strong leadership to control the debates!

Wordpower

- indoors - 60 to 90 minutes - for teams of 4 to 6 - £400 for two kits - extra £100 each

In this task teams, using Scrabble letters, have to make up words of specific lengths! Each team is issued with a box of Scrabble tiles (different for each team, eg one team might have many As and another many Es - but negotiating is allowed) and they can add to these in a variety of ways - egs buying, or an auction between teams for valuable letters like a Z or a blank. Teams need to read the "small print" carefully to work out how to score highly - and again, watch out for the ASSUMPTIONS that will distract them!

The Case of the Blackened Filament

- indoors - 60 to 90 minutes - for one team of 6 to 10 - £300; two team version £500

This is a PROBLEM SOLVING exercise to be used alongside the relevant chapter in the book Leadership at Work. Teams have to solve an industrial problem by acquiring information from a tutor who refers to a file in the kit. Information is "priced" in units of time with the objective of finding a solution as quickly as possible. If teams have appointed leaders they can be debriefed afterwards using checklists provided. The recommendation is for the client to identify in advance real life challenges the group face so a discussion can follow the task relating the lessons learned on problem solving to real life, and an action plan agreed. The two team version provides different background information for each team and teams can liaise and exchange information as they wish (to save time and money)

One Big Happy Team

- indoors and outdoors - 90 to 120 minutes - for teams of 4 to 6 - £500 for a 500 piece jigsaw; £750 for 1,000

At least two competing teams need to collaborate to assemble a 500 piece jigsaw in about an hour! The puzzle is however, split into 20 sections with teams allocated the sections they are responsible for; AND each piece has a number on its back to help with assembly. But teams are not issued with their sections - they have to earn them by going on a “treasure hunt”! This is a great task for bringing everyone together and getting over the message that, no matter what your individual and/or “small team” roles might be, everyone has to communicate and co-operate to maximise results for the "greater good"!

The Outdoor Jigsaw / A Floating Puzzle Indoors or Outdoors

 - £500 for a 500 piece jigsaw; £750 for 1,000

We have a continuous production line of assembling, numbering, sectioning and disassembling jigsaws and have used them in a variety of ways over the years. Illustrations above include an Indoor (hotel pool) and an Outdoor (pond) Floating Puzzle and an Outdoor Jigsaw which had to be transported to the top of a mountain! Both 500 and 1,000 piece jigsaws are supplied in 20 small boxes (of 25 or 50 pieces) and each piece has a number written on its back as per the plan that's issued. A 1,000 piece puzzle really needs a minimum of 12 participants split into 2 or more competing (and then co-operating) teams.

The Balloonpole

- outdoors - to 3 hours - for teams of 6 to 8 - £600 for 2 kits - £200 each for more

The aim of the Task is to maximise profit by building a flagpole flying balloons from the top of it - with the height and the number of balloons and the time taken as the measurements. Included in each kit are 100 balloons; poles of varying widths and strengths sufficient to design and build a base and then erect a 50 feet balloonpole; varying widths and lengths of string and rope; and scissors. An option In the Planning Phase is to hold an AUCTION between teams for materials. So by the time of the auction teams need to have a very specific strategy - for how much they can afford to spend versus the potential rewards. And negotiating before and after the auction is allowed.

The Minefield

- outdoors - to 3 hours - for teams of 4 to 8 - £600 for 1 kit (for 2 teams)

The aim of the Task is for all team members to escape through a minefield - including carrying wounded and blindfold team members! Teams are issued with logic puzzle clues which enables them to plot where mines are laid and plan a route through. Included in the kit is one "minefield" for laying out, poles and materials teams can improvise with to make stretchers for "injured" team members; blindfolds; a "mastermine" and carrying buckets and assorted poles and ropes for teams again to improvise with on how to carry the "mastermine".
