TIME TO SHARE, Communicate

A team’s full potential could be developed in an appropriate social environment that predisposes everyone to express their opinion freely and calmly. Communication has the role of a cohesive invisible factor, which is an essential prerequisite for team members to get to know each other and create friendly relations. The positivity of communication affects the energy of the team. Conversations that focus on needs, desires and interests are full of energy. Use KissTheFrogNOW to improve communication between team members, which is a critical factor for any productive, successful and productive team.

Tips & Tricks

Where?

It is recommended that you make sure the team activities are going to be conducted in a room different than the workplace. You could use a training room or a bigger meeting room. You should preferably have enough room to work in groups and carry out the games that include movement. In favourable weather conditions, you could conduct the activities outside as well.

Sharing in a circle

Regardless if you are working with the whole group or you have been separated in smaller groups, favour the circle arrangement. Sitting in a circle is going to facilitate trust and transparency.

Reflection

Take 15-20 minutes for sharing and reflection with everyone at the end of the day, after the activities have ended. The facilitator can use some of the following questions: What did today’s experience give you?, What was the biggest surprise? Which activities contributed the most to yourself and the team? How are you feeling right now? What did you learn today? Does anything come to mind that you could do with or for your team?
