Participants – 2 +
Purpose – to help participants recognise their own strengths as well as the teams. This is particularly useful for helping the team realise that their differences can be an advantage.
Props – a sheet of flipchart paper for each participant and a selection of coloured pens.
Process – each member of the team will draw a picture that best represents them on a sheet of flipchart. They will then list the strengths and skills that they contribute to the team.
When each member has finished their part of the totem pole, tape them together on the wall one on top of the other (the flipchart sheets, not the participants!)
Each member of the team then describes their strengths to the team. Finally, they discuss how each of their skills compliments one another.
The Rules – participants must respect each other throughout and be sensitive in their comments. Honest and constructive are key words.
Review – What did they learn? How will they use that in the workplace?
Use this team building game to help participants recognise their own strengths as well as the teams. This is particularly useful for helping the team realise that their differences can be an advantage.
This Team Building Game works well with our Team Building Training Materials.
