Team building Games Indoor – Musical Chairs #41On August 9, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
During the exercise the team will sit in a circle on chairs. This exercise is fine to do as a warm up at the beginning of the day. The trainer stands next to the circle and says “I love people who..” and next names a characteristic based on appearance. For example: I love people who wear jeans. The participants wearing jeans have to switch chairs. The participants who are not wearing jeans keep sitting on their chairs. Next you say: “I love people with blond hair.” The participants with blond hair switch chairs. I love people who wear earrings. I love people who wear a wedding ring. After the team is warmed up the trainer calls out characteristics based on personality. For example: I love people who stand up for themselves. The participants who can stand up for themselves switch chairs. I love people who think it’s difficult to speak there minds. I love people who put themselves on the background. I love people who live life to the fullest. Next a game element will be added to the exercise and the exercise will speed up a bit so the participants think less and react more on their first impulse. The trainer will now participate stands in the middle of the circle and names a statement which he thinks suits himself. When the participants that recognise themselves in the statement switch chairs the trainer also finds a chair to sit on as fast as possible so there will be one participant that remains standing and has no chair. I love people who can be nicer to themselves. The participants who recognise themselves in the statement switch chairs as fast as possible and try not to be the one that remains standing. The one who remains standing is the next one naming a statement that applies to him and the participants that recognise themselves in the statement switch chairs as fast as possible. I love people who have an eye for detail. The one remaining names the next statement he thinks applies to him and also sits on a chair as fast as possible. I love people who care about others. Everyone who recognize himself in the statement switch chairs. The one remaining names the next statement. “I love people who think it’s difficult to handle feedback.” I love people who love reading. Keep on going like this until everyone has been the last man standing and has named a statement. The trainer guides the team and applies variations to this exercise.
