(TOPIC: LEADERSHIP & TEAMWORK)
HAVE EVERYONE STAND IN A CIRCLE, REALLY CLOSE TO EACH OTHER,FACING INWARDS.
THEN ASK EVERYONE TO MAKE A QUARTER TURN LEFT.
MAKE EVERYONE STAND EVEN CLOSER TO EACH OTHER (BY TAKING A SMALL STEP INWARDS).
ASK THE WHOLE GROUP TO SIT DOWN, SIMULTANEOUSLY.
IF EVERYONE IS REALLY CLOSE, THEY WILL END UP SITTING ON ONE ANOTHER’S KNEES, AND THE WHOLE CONSTRUCTION SUPPORTS ITSELF.
POSSIBLE NEXT STEP IS TO MAKE THE CIRCLE WALK (OR MARCH).
PURPOSE: DEMONSTRATES THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPORTING OTHER PEOPLE. TRUSTING OTHERS. THE IMPORTANCE OF WORKING TOGETHER, RATHER THAN AS A GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS.
