Fun, revealing, energising! A short, sharp team bonding activity suitable for both large and small groups. If you are interested in a 'LARGE group' version - more than four teams - please contact Northgate.
Can your team win Gold? Start with 20 questions on the Olympics. Answer these and receive two sets of cards; one containing clues, one containing names. Use the clues to sort and match the cards until you have paired and eliminated all except one - bearing the name of a mythical city that will host the Olympics. This task has pitfalls so the better you organise yourselves the sooner you’ll correctly identify the city! Finally, design an advertising poster for the host city which depicts a brand new Olympic sport.
The questions, the city and the poster are all scored to decide which team wins the gold medals!
Often used as a starter activity, all sorts of skills are required and all against a tight deadline! Relax groups and promote team bonding with this light-hearted, fast-paced team-task that needs lots of different skills.
'Going for Gold!' transformed a group of rather nervous, quiet participants who didn’t know each other into energetic, motivated teams.
G. Walker, Consultant
Used as an energiser on a team strategy day for senior managers. The best learning points were role allocation, communication, initial diagnosis/planning and interpretation. Engaging and ideal as a starter for a team day or workshop where you are looking at how a team/group work together.
K. Bevan, NUTS
Fast, fun and a real energiser! We used 'Going for Gold!' as an icebreaker/teamwork exercise with our International Sales Team. Both the systematic and the more sporadic teams completed the activity. We received great feedback about the enjoyment factor!
Stephanie Barnett, Twinings
Used as an icebreaker for a 'Get Organised' course with groups of 10-14 managers & staff. It highlighted time management and prioritisation skills. Very interactive, the activity gets the group going – talking, moving about, thrashing out the problems and reaching compromise. Great fun and the salient points for the course were quickly established.
P. Elder, Elder & Associates
We have used both 'The Bridge' and 'Going for Gold'. Both were brilliant fun and supported our team building events really well, drawing out a number of learning points.
