Knot or Not A Knot


Does your team stand together in unity or fight for position/opinion? This activity is a great closing activity as a final ‘challenge’.  How are we actually viewing ourselves and our ‘positions’? Am I digging my heels in because I feel I am right?  This activity shows how holding your position can result in a pyrrhic victory.

Most of our jobs involve a heavy amount of decision making. Many of us make decisions that affect one person to thousands of people everyday. As most of us make decisions we tend to decide based on our own personal perceptions.

This team building activity simulates how we make decisions when given time and when we are under a time crunch. This activity will challenge your group to make a decision and stand by it, understand and accept the decisions of others, and see the whole picture and not just the so called “critical information”.

Participants identify what is needed to break through self-imposed limitations, think creatively and focus on the most efficient way to come to a decision.

This activity is a great closing activity as a final ‘challenge’. Many groups get quite good at these activities and this will test them and provide them with something to think about moving forward. How are we actually viewing ourselves and our ‘positions’? Am I digging my heels in because I am right, or because I am in love with MY idea?

It can be very difficult to put the ego aside and be a truly selfless team member. This activity will help participants experience themselves authentically in this space without blatantly hitting them upside the head if they happen to be extremely stubborn and only willing to keep their ‘position’.
