Team Builder

Blind Square
This is a quick, but effective teambuilding activity.

1.) As many blindfolds as you have team members
2.) 1 large rope, at least 40 feet in length

Simply blindfold all your team members and throw a rope on the ground next to them. Tell them to make a square, using the full length of the rope lying on the ground next to them. Give them no further instructions.

There is no trick. It’s just great to see who takes charge, how they organize the corners, if one person facilitates from the middle, etc.

This is awesome, it really let me see who my true leaders were and also, who my team players were and who I needed to kick off the team. Thank you!! :)
