However, both the team leader’s hands have frostbite, so they can’t physically help construct the shelter, and the rest of the team has snow blindness and is unable to see.
When the 30 minutes is up, turn on the fan and see which shelter can withstand the high winds of the storm.
All problem solving processes start with identifying the problem.
Next, the team must assess potential courses of action and choose the best way to tackle the problem.
Another aspect to keep in mind when engaging in problem solving games and activities: There are no winners or losers.
Sure, some games might end with a single winner, but the true goal of these exercises is to learn how to work together as a team to develop an agile mindset.This requires a deep understanding of your team and their core strengths.A problem solving exercise or game helps identify those strengths and builds problem solving skills and strategies while having fun with your team! Participants must have an open-mind and accept all ideas and solutions.Separate them into teams of 4-5 and have them select a leader to guide their exploration.Each team must build a shelter from the materials provided before the storm hits in 30 minutes.Give them either 30 minutes or 1 hour to find the key using the clues hidden around the room.Helps with: Decision Making, Adaptability What You’ll Need: Instructions: Picture this: Your employees are Arctic explorers adventuring across an icy tundra!The doors are locked, and knocking down the doors or breaking the windows is not an option. Select an overseer who isn't on a team to build a random structure using Lego building blocks within 10 minutes. The other teams must replicate the structure exactly (including size and color) within 15 minutes.Give your team 30 minutes to decide on 10 items in the office they need for survival and rank them in order of importance. However, only one member from each group may look at the original structure.The goal of the game is to have everyone agree on the 10 items and their ranking in 30 minutes. They must figure out how to communicate the size, color, and shape of the original structure to their team. If this is too easy, add a rule that the member who can see the original structure can't touch the new structure.Helps with: Collaboration What You’ll Need: Instructions: The goal of this exercise is to solve the clues, find the key, and escape a locked room within the time allotted. Gather the team into the empty room and "lock" the door.
