Good, regular feedback within an organisation can be an essential tool for helping improve performance and morale. This training game demonstrates its importance in supporting our ability to understand each other and drive the results we need.
- Four or more
Explain to your group that they are going to play a game.
Ask a volunteer to sit with their back to the group, and give ‘Drawing 1’ to the volunteer.
Ask the volunteer to describe the picture to the group. The group will then attempt to recreate the picture from the descriptions provided. This can be done individually or as a group.
The group can’t ask any questions, and no party can provide feedback.
Repeat the exercise with another volunteer describing ‘Drawing 2’. This time the group can ask questions and to give feedback.
