Strengthen teams, create bonds and impart skills with our innovative team building business games.

PURPOSE

  • This training resource works well:
  • as an icebreaker to make key learning points
  • with limited time and as a fun pick-me-up
  • for conference breakout sessions
  • for indoor or outdoor use.

THE PROCESS

The team's briefing sheet tells them they must form two lines, facing one other and support the Helium Stick on their index fingers. They must not allow the stick to come apart as they try to lower it to the ground.

This sounds easy for the team to achieve, but they will soon discover it isn't.

Typically the Helium Stick goes up rather than down, until the team organise themselves. (There is no helium in the stick; it is the way the team works that makes the stick rise or fall.)

This game mirrors the business dynamic of projects starting out well, but quickly going awry. Why is that? Sometimes even the best plans do not work. What you do as a team when plans go awry has everything to do with teamwork, trust and communication. Teams come away from this activity with a deeper understanding of how they work best together.

PURPOSE

Learn and practise mentoring skills with our popular training game for mentor activities.

Practical Mentoring Activity is an easy to learn and ready to use training game. With quick delivery, you can soon be up and running mentoring skills training.

Interesting and informative mentoring notes and practical training activities provide the basic principles and techniques required to be a successful mentor.

PART ONE - GUIDE TO BUSINESS MENTORING SKILLS 

In the pack you will find useful information you can use on:

  • the role of a mentor
  • do's and don'ts of life mentoring
  • the importance of non-verbal communication when mentoring
  • body language that builds rapport
  • powerful questions for life mentoring
  • using the GROW model
  • the skills of giving feedback.

PART TWO - MENTORING ACTIVITIES

When mentoring, it is likely the mentee will come to you with issues or problems seeking your advice. It is important to learn how to hand the problem or difficulty back to the mentee and encourage them find the solutions. Part two will help you practice the skills to do this.
