lind Drawing | Duration: 10-15 minutes | Purpose: Clear Communication
Description: Clear communication is key for any group that needs to work together and this game will show your team why it is so important, and how to improve. Everyone will need to break up into groups of two and be seated back to back. One will be given a writing utensil and paper and the other will be given a picture. The person with the photo will have to describe the image in the best detail they can, without saying what the picture actually is. The other will have to try to draw it. The picture might be a house or a banana, but they can only describe the characteristics and shapes that make up the image. Once the time is up, review the drawing and reflect on how strong the communication was between the two.
Reverse the roles and have them try again.

The goal of this team building challenge is to have everyone line up in the order of his or her birthday (Month/Day)… without speaking! The group must think of a creative way to communicate with one another using body language. Once everyone has lined up, go down the line and have each person share their birthday and see how well they did.
Each team will spend 5 minutes with our marketing guru, Robyn, to film a quick video about their company.
