The Farmers communication exercise is a communication exercise/team building exercise that can be used with single or multiple teams, from 6-30 people and is a great way of exploring how a group/team currently communicates, and to identify ways for improvement and enhancement.   Whether you are a trainer looking for some new exercises for your workshops, or a manager wanting to explore effective communication with your team, the Farmers communication exercises is a great experiential team activity that will get the whole team involved, and will give you plenty of experiences to review and debrief with your group/team.  These communication exercises are compact, durable and come with full trainer notes/instructions, participant briefs, and a handy tough carry case to keep it all together. 

 

How it works:

The Farmers communication exercise is a logical problem-solver. A set of 30 information cards are distributed amongst team members.  Team members need to not only share information effectively, but they must quickly put in place a logical process, in order to fill in the blanks and complete the task.  Clear communication and leadership is essential for success, as many people jump straight into trying to solve the problem 'their way', without an agreed way of moving forwards first, or a way of hearing and understanding all of the information available.  You can also split the team into multiple sub-groups, to add complexity; simulating the distribution of information within organisations and departments.  This exercise lends itself well to selection & assessment centres, where clear facilitative leadership is required.

How it works:

 

Murder Hunt is a simple 'who done it?'  Information cards are distributed amongst the team.  The team need to share information with each other, and work collectively, in order to solve the case.  You can also split the team into two separate sub-groups, dividing the information.  Sub groups need to exchange information freely and efficiently if the 'team' is to solve the mystery. Conflicts can occur between the more intuitive group members, and those who need more concrete information.

30 minutes excluding review/debrief

 

Use for the following aims and outcomes:

 

 – Problem-solving and decision-making 

 

 – Team-working

Interlocker Team Building Activity

How it works:

 

The Zin Obelisk communication exercise is a logical and mathematical problem-solver. Information cards are distributed amongst team members.  Team members need to share information with each other effectively, and work collectively, in order to solve the problem.  Clear communication and leadership is essential for success. You can also split the team into either 2, 3 or 4 separate sub-groups, dividing the information across the whole 'team'. As not all of the information is useful, sub-groups can move quickly to withholding useful information for personal gain, and only sharing information that is counter-productive to the 'team's' goal. A great exercise if you are wanting to reinforce the importance of a 'one team' culture.
