Training Central’s In Tray activity will sharpen your delegates’ attention and wake them up, bringing wandering minds, back into the training room. It’s a great energiser to use mid-session.
- Six or ten
Let your delegates know that you are going to have a quick mental break from the training session. To help them, they are going to play a little In Tray activity.
Explain that you are going to give them fifteen seconds to look at your in-tray. The tray will contain lots of items. Explain that you will then move the in-tray and remove or change something about the in-tray. The delegates must try to work out what has changed.
Start with something easy and gradually make it harder. An example of an easy option is to remove a pen or a large piece of paper. A devilish one is to change the time on the watch.
