The duration of this program can be a few hours to a full day, or, it can be combined with other activities to create a full day of team building.
Here are some examples of Experiential Challenges:
Zoom is an intriguing wordless picture book by Istvan Banyai, which consists ofsequential “pictures within pictures”. This popular, engaging group problem solving and communication exercise challenges participants to create a unified story from the series of sequential pictures.
Cycle Time Puzzle
An intense challenge that thoroughly tests a group’s ability to solve complex problems. Participants examine a diagram and are challenged to replicate it using the custom-made, wooden puzzle pieces. At first, the task seems simple; as the group proceeds, participants discover that the task requires much more than just assembling the boards to match the diagram. To achieve a successful outcome with this activity, a group will experience a high level of teamwork.
Transfer of Knowledge
This problem-solving initiative requires participants retrieve or transfer the “Knowledge” using only the props provided.
Getting The Product in the Pipeline
A fast-paced activity that employs physical coordination, team cooperation, communication and planning. This lively and thought-provoking activity involves the movement of assorted balls and objects from a starting point to the delivery container.
Your group must physically touch all 30 spots in a numbered sequence within a specified time. The groups compete with each other to achieve “constant improvement.”
This fast paced, high-energy activity involves communication, teamwork, and planning skills. Each member of the team is active and essential, as the activity requires many roles-from ball chasers and ball tossers to human backboards.
