Games for Coworkers – Objects #103On August 12, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
During the exercise the team stands in a big circle. Prior to the exercise you ask the team members to bring an object which symbolizes something they think it’s important within the team. Point to the first person that will lay down the object in the center of the circle and tells what this object symbolizes. I chose to bring a bouquet of flowers Our team is very cheerful, but we have to be careful that the cheerfulness stays and not perishes like it happens during the last days of a bouquet of flowers. The other team members now move towards a certain distance from the flowers. The distance represents the feeling they have towards what the flowers symbolize. In this case: Short moments of cheerfulness within the team. Each person now tells why he chose this particular distance. In this case one persons stands close to the flowers and tells why. I love cheerful moments. I don’t mind if it doesn’t last forever. If it makes you happy for a short period it works for me as well. Another person stands very far away and says: I prefer longer moments of happiness. When a good feeling doesn’t stick it’s meaningless to me. Go on until everyone explained the distance he chose regarding the object. Now it’s the next person’s turn. I brought a roll of tape. I have the feeling we really stick together as a team. I like that. It gives me confidence and a safe feeling. Everyone moves towards a certain distance from the object again and tells why. I am standing in the middle because I love it when we bond as a team, but I also like to have my own space. I love it when we stick together as a team. The more it feels like friendship the better I can concentrate on my work. Again everyone explains the distance he chose regarding the object. Go on like this until everyone putted his object in the center and the others told why they moved to a certain distance. The trainer guides the team and applies variations to the exercise.
