Positive Teamwork – Admiring #90On August 14, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
During the exercise the team sits or stands in a circle. You ask the team who they admire. It can be anyone. A family member, artist, historical figure or a friend. One by one everyone says who they admire and why. One person says:I admire Micheal Jackson. He is the best live performing artist I have ever seen. I admire Ghandi, i think he was a very enlightend figure who inspired milions of people. Go on like this untill everyone has had the turn. Now everyone says who they admire, but it has to be someone everyone in the group knows personally. I admire Katy, the lady from the cantine. She is always so friendly, even when it’s early in the morning. I think we can all learn from that. I admire Peter, the head of this school, he is a good leader, knows what he wants and is friendly at the same time. Go on like this untill everyone has had the turn. Now you point to someone in the group of which the other participants will say which part of him they admire. In this case someone says: I admire Joanne her generousity. She often asks if she can help and is always there for you. The next person says: I admire Joanne because she has a great sense of humor, especially when she is not aware she says something funny. Go on like this untill everyone has said what part of Joanne they admire. Now it’s the next persons turn. I admire John because is a real go-getter. He is a great inspiration. I admire his ability to motivate people, he helped me a lot when I just joined the team. Everyone says what part of John they admire. Go on like this untill everyone has been the admired person once.
