Hi, I am having my retreat next 2 days. I am still
trying my best to find a game/activity for my group of sales advisors understand the idea of inner control of influence versus external things that they cannot control. Key idea is to let them see that it is no point wasting time discussing and dwelling on things/factors they cannot control, but rather to work on the inner self, things that they can work on to give a change to the results.
Appreciate your fast reply.
Name of the Game: My Mind
The game is played in pairs. You will need blindfolds - same as the number of pairs in your group.
Make the pairs sit far apart so that their voices do not carry to the other pairs sitting in the room.
One of the pair has to be blindfolded. The task for the pair is to act like one individual instead of two. As such the seeing member has to be the speaker, encourager, describer, problem-solver, while the blindfolded person has to be the doer.
(The reason for the blindfold is to enable the individual to not just focus on the stimuli in the external environment, but primarily listen to what the inner person has to say about the external environment. Use this information to debrief the game. Do not reveal it in the beginning.)
The task should be at the most 10 minutes long. Ask one of the members of the pairs to blindfold themselves. Then put up the slide with the following picture (or anyother picture of your choice which is not too complicated to replicate)on it.
