Training course contents:
A one sheet team description of the team building game, ‘All Aboard’ can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page or you can follow the instructions below.
Participants – 8 or more
Purpose – this is a quick warm-up activity designed to stimulate thought about what makes a team effective.
Process – place three phone books on the ground. Explain that this is an exercise that will allow the team to examine how effectively they work together as a team.
Say, “Your job is to get as many people off the ground as you choose, for as long as you choose.”
The Rules – “Off the ground means that no one may touch the ground. You may only use yourself and the telephone books. You cannot use anything else in the room to assist you”.
Say, “You have 10 Minutes to complete the job.” and repeat “Your job is to get as many people off the ground as you choose, for as long as you choose.”
Ask for questions, clarify anything then start the clock.
Review – have the team rate their effectiveness on a 1-10 scale (1 meaning you didn’t work well together, 10 meaning you were extraordinary).
They should then comment on their ratings. Ask, “What would you have had to do to rate your teamwork a 10?” Ask high raters what made them rate the team so high (or low depending on response.)
This active team building game is useful to stimulate thought about what makes a team effective.
This Team Building Game works well with our Team Building Training Materials.
