Here’s a team activity that is pretty targeted in it’s purpose – to help team members recognize and reward each other – but ticks all these other marks, too: easy, inexpensive, short, creative, tactile, interactive, and possibly physical. I’ve used this successfully with both intact, internal teams, and teams of seasoned external consultants. It’s great for social and creative personality types (ENFP, high I, Blue, etc.), but also quick and casual enough to engage other types of team members. Give it a try!
Time: 15-30 minutes
This activity is infinitely adaptable in terms of setting, duration, materials, focus, etc. I’d love to hear (in comments below) how you would use it!
