Ask participants to write workplace ‘problems’ they have on post-it notes.

Once they have two or three problems, they should bring them to the front of the room and place them on a pre-prepared flipchart with the heading ‘A Problem Shared’.

Take it in turns to work through the issues that are on each of the post-it notes and ask everyone to provide input on how the issues can be resolved.

Once you have a clear solution for the issue, ask the person that originally wrote it if they are satisfied with the solution and if they have any feedback.


This energiser helps build communication between participants and where managed effectively can help to address workplace concerns.

This energiser works well with our Communication and Leadership Training Course Materials.
