Get to Know Each Other Games – The Key Ring #38On August 12, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
During the exercise the team will sit in a circle and everyone will take out their keys. In the exercise the group will get to know each other based on their keys and what they mean to that specific person. The trainer selects someone to start the exercise. This person picks two keys that he wants to tell about. His story may be as personal as he wants. In this case he grabs his motor keys. “This is the key to my motor. Motor cycling is my favorite thing to do. Once I traveled alone on my motorcycle through Thailand. And even with a bad night of sleep when drive my motor from home to work I always wake up immidiatly!” The second key is his house key. “This is the key of my apartment in Washington D.C.. I’ve been living there happily for years with my lovely girlfriend.” After the story the group may ask questions. One participant asks. “How long do you have a relationship with your girlfriend?” The other participant answers: “Just a year actually. But we’re so confident in our relationship that we moved in together.” Let the whole group tell a story based on two keys and answer questions. In the next part of the exercise the participants tell a story based on two other keys and the way they had to follow to get to those keys. This participant picks his car keys. “Getting my driver’s license was a total disaster. I failed four times on my practical exam before I eventually passed. Luckily I had a very supportive driving instructor!” Let all participants have a turn to tell their story about how they got their keys. As final part of the exercise the participants may visualise a keyring they want to have in ten years. It can contain keys of everything you want. From a big house to a big car or anything else you can come up with. The trainer points at a participant to start his story. In ten years this will be the key to my home outside of the big city where I will be living with my wife and own a coaching practice.” Also now other participants may ask questions. For example: “What will be your first step to achieve those keys?” Continue like this until everyone has told their story about a key they’d like to own in 10 years. The trainer guides the team and applies variations. What kind of variations you can read below this video on Youtube. And haven’t you subscribed yet?
