Chain of Command

Team challenges and tough choices - Discover the setbacks of communication gaps the fun way!

If you want your group to start interacting and enjoying themselves from the word go, then “Chain of Command” is your best bet.

‘Chain of Command’ is a game that fosters problem-solving skills but is an ideal icebreaker. Chain of Command enphasizes facing challenges as a team through trust and co-operation.

A glimpse into Chain of Command:

The game has a line-up pattern and therefore the name Chain of Command. The facilitator indicates a strict deadline. This will simulate a fair amount of  “real life” office stress among the participants. Using the many variations to Ant on a Log, you can help participants discover the pitfalls of gaps in communication and to appreciate the nuances of different communication styles.

This is a game that has a lot of fun in store for the facilitator too. You can create even more challenges and raise the bar in fun quotient, by making the going extremely tough for capable teams. But at the same time you can play benevolent, by simplifying the task for a troubled team that may be stuck and not having any fun at all!

Ideal For: Icebreaker, problem solving, trust, pure fun, communication.

Knot or NOT a Knot
Does the group Stand Together or Stand Apart?

That is the crux of this activity and makes for a great metaphor. Throughout the short activity, individuals will have to make a decision about the length of rope in front of them. Does the pile of rope have a knot, or not?

As the group progresses through a series of these decisions and short activities, they learn that listening to instructions, as well as standing together as a group, is key to their success.

This becomes a fantastic metaphor for the group moving forward and has become a unifying theme for groups that become teams.

Ideal For: Decision making, problem solving, pure fun, communication.

Let Go My Ego - Download Immediately

Spiraling conflict and a gathering storm within the team but finally a strategic solution!

High pressure, stress, conflict and divergent views that reflect the real life work place are simulated in this well thought out and remarkable mind-bender game.

Every team member is an important spoke in the wheel of an organization and wields a significant influence on the group process. In this game, team members will find themselves pitted against each others views. They must work through frustrations and differences of opinion to solve this strategically challenging exercise.

 A glimpse into Let Go My Ego:

Participants will be asked to pick a partner and form two parallel lines with the partners facing each other. A bar is placed along the index fingers of the team. The team has to co-ordinate the movement of the bar based on the instructions provided. A solution for this exercise is almost impossible!

Two probable team scenarios:

a) If there is good communication within a team, then the team focus tends to be on strategizing and evaluating various options to a solution. If participants respect each others viewpoint despite the high stress of a near unachievable exercise, then the team is in great shape.

b) On the other hand, there are teams that fall short in good communication. The team members perform their individual roles in the game but are unable to arrive at a consensus on the group’s approach to a solution. Overcoming annoyance and resisting the temptation to blame each other will be the key to moving the bar in the right direction.

In cases where Let Go My Ego gets too serious, and spirals out of control, it is recommended that you stop the game and remind everyone that this is supposed to be fun exercise.

Let Go My Ego Digital File:

Digital, downloadable file

The digital file is available immediately after you purchase and includes:

  • Comprehensive information on purpose of the game, how to set it up, the storyline and the safety measures necessary during the course of the exercise.

Team Shackles - Download Immediately

Overcome challenges by ‘unlocking’ the compartments in the mind!

If people in your organization tend to work in isolation or in ‘compartments’, if information sharing or seeking a co-worker’s counsel is non-existent, then you need Team Handcuffs.

Team Shackles can bring about a paradigm shift in attitudes toward fellow workers. The game demonstrates how the whole team can benefit if there is willingness to seek and give help. It will also build confidence within the group and disprove the notion that some things are impossible.

A glimpse into Team Shackles

This exercise has a simple setup but offers a great challenge. Within each team participants are ‘shackled’ to each other. The challenge is not only in each pair untangling the handcuffs but in the entire team getting disentangling within a given time limit.

In this game you will notice some stereo-typical behavior among participants. Although the game requires the entire group to untangle, pairs that have managed to un-cuff earlier than others will usually not offer their help to other team members until time is running out or sometimes not even then. It was not in the 'rules'!

The game attempts to correct this behavior and develop a more supportive and helpful attitude among participants.

Trust Walk

Trust Walk is about leading, following, trusting and communicating.

Many leadership styles emerge during this event. Whatever the experience, the Trust Walk is a powerful learning opportunity.

A glimpse into Trust Walk

After pairing up, each individual takes turns leading the other person through obstacles and overcoming adversity. While a very simplistic activity, many people find it difficult to trust their partner and find they will 'cheat'.

Because it is so simply, very few people take the time to strategize or find out exactly how far 'X' number of steps is for their partner. This create the scenario for a great lesson in coaching -- we need to communicate with other people the way THEY hear it best, not the way WE hear it best. This is an activity every manager should master before going back to work!

With several variations, you can run this activity with both pairs alone and then all the pairs together at the same time to create a completely different level of communication.

We do not recommend driving a motorized vehicle during this event!
