Describe a scene to the audience as follows…
You are walking alone through a forest when you come across a very large and scary looking bear.
Ask the participants to provide you with a one word response for what they would do in this situation. Write these responses on a flipchart.
Explain to participants that the responses provided are also how we respond to problems that we face in our day to day work. Discuss this point with the participants and link it back where possible to the wider training topic that you are carrying out.
This energiser is useful for encouraging positive thinking and helping participants to deal with issues that confront them. It can also work as an excellent icebreaker for a training course on assertiveness or positive thinking.
