This energiser is really just a method of creating a bit of fun and lightening the mood of a training course.
Training course contents:
You can download a set of instructions for the energiser, ‘No Smiling’ for free from the link below.
Ask for a volunteer from the group. Once you have one, place them on a chair in the middle of the room and ask everyone else to take their chairs and form a circle around that person.
The role of the volunteer is to remain as miserable as possible. The task of the rest of the group is to make the person smile or laugh.
Each person is to take it in turns to try and make the person smile and after each turn the person in the middle must say, ‘I like you friend, but I cannot smile.’
The energiser ends when the person smiles or laughs.
This energiser is really just for laughs, although it can break up a stressful session and help participants re-engage.
