Today, we have another video from Mark Collard for you. This time it is about listening and reflex skills.
The goal of the exercise is that you learn to listen in a way you might not expect, because in this video, they play Simon says in a very unconventional way. First the participants are told to walk when Mark says ‘WALK’ and to stop walking when he says ‘STOP’. However after a while the words get switched. Now they have to walk when he says ‘STOP’ and the other way around. This is not all, because other command get added to make the game more challenging. First ‘CLAP’ and ‘NAME’ and later ‘JUMP’ and ‘DANCE’ get added. This is fun to do with a large group of people or children. It triggers the mind to think and people will be more observant afterwards.
201 Icebreakers is great for trainers, speakers and group facilitators. The book contains many activities that cost little time and preparation. Most activities can be done in less than five minutes. This makes it perfect at the beginning of a meeting to break the ice, or in the middle to get everyone excited and going again. With the games, quizzes, energizers, and brainteasers, this book has to offer. You will have a great atmosphere in no time!
This is a group exercise/ energizer in which we won’t give you the solution but just challenge you to do it.
How it works:
Everyone stands in a circle and holds the hand of the neighbour/ neighbor.
This means that everyone looks in the inside.
You give the group the task to stand faced to the opposed side without releasing the hands.
It is possible without making all kinds of weird quirks with your body!
