Wild Woosey is designed to help the group work dependently with a partner and trust one another completely. In order to achieve the goal of the activity, you both must cross the deep ‘V’ while maintaining contact your partner. Seems easy! It is absolutely not.
Participants walk through a course blindfolded and lead by a partner.
This is one of the most powerful and, ironically, one of the simplest events we offer. The Trust Walk is about leading, following and communication. Many leadership styles emerge during this event. Some find it difficult to be responsible for another person’s safety and others find it exhilarating.
To trust or give up control can be very hard for some people. Whatever the experience, the Trust Walk is a powerful learning opportunity.
Each group member to change the board they are standing on, so that they are not standing on a board with any original board members.
This activity will highlight the need for leadership, communication and interdependence.
All group members are to stand on the platform long enough to count to 10. Begin with the largest version of the platform and move to the smallest.
This is a group activity that involves increasing trust through proximity, dealing with dwindling / limiting resources and problem solving.
Like many activities, this has typical communication and leadership challenges. Best of all, it is actually fun too and can get the group laughing with each other.
Move the entire group through the center hole in the web, the ‘Hole in Space’ as quickly as possible.
This is a fine event for demonstrating to a group that they can improve their efficiency performance by discussing previous attempts and by working together as a team. Decrease in performance time can be dramatic.
For the entire group to travel from one side of the web to the other.
Teamwork and communication is essential for overall success. Once you begin to go through the web, you ‘lose all perspective’ and must be coached and helped to get through.
The objective of this exercise is to get the entire group from one side of the ‘fence’ to the other.
Ask the participants to imagine that this is an electric fence with a force field from the top of the fence to the ground and stretches on forever in either direction.
Use the boards, while participants hold them, to climb from one end of the group to the other.
This is easy but powerful trust building activity that can be used during any team building program.
Goal – To develop a sense of trust between participants.
For the entire group to travel through the web to the other side, without touching the web. Each participant must travel through a different opening in the web.
This requires the entire team to manage their differences (size, disposition, strength, intelligence, etc.), it requires commitment, it’s very physical without being strenuous, and it’s fun.
