The Activity

Wiff Waff is the original name for Ping Pong, or table tennis. In this short sharp teamwork activity participants are asked to plan for a table-tennis tournament. They have ten minutes' individual planning time and they then come together, in virtual teams, to work out details of play, costs and entrance fee, design a poster and prepare advertising copy.

The activity is based on a set of seven team roles that are considered essential components for high-performing teams. The task is designed to bring the key team roles into relief and gives participants the opportunity to reflect on their own best skills and attributes - and how they fit into a team.

During the debrief you can discuss what happened during the team task, and consider the seven key roles or types. Optional handouts included. An exciting, team task that is designed to get your delegates interacting followed by an opportunity for self-reflection.

Wiff Waff has been developed from Northgate's activity, Building an Effective Team (no longer available).

Trainer's Role

1. Briefly introduce the activity to all participants.

2. Allocate participants into teams and put them into breakout rooms.

3. Send a copy of the Team Brief to each individual and allow ten minutes for participants to study it on their own. After ten minutes participants can then discuss it within their teams.

4. Allow 20-30 minutes for the team task. Observe teams in action and make notes for the debrief in terms of how they worked as a team.

5. After the allotted time stop the teams. Ask for results from each team in terms of the answers to the task.

6. Lead a general debrief on how the teams operated and a discussion on team roles.

7. Use the (optional) PowerPoint to describe and review the seven key roles. Use the optional handouts which are designed to make participants think about their own traits and how they best fit into the key roles required in a team.

8. Consolidate the learning by linking the idea of team roles to the workplace and how improvements might be made in terms of self-awareness, behaviours and attitudes.

Full instructions, debrief notes and worked calculations all supplied in the Trainer’s Notes.

We find all Northgate activities very intuitive and easy to work with and delegates find them a great benefit. And it helps us promote our brand and company by always coming across as professional.

Steve Penson, Operations Director, Alisar Ltd

Northgate Activities make an excellent and good value part of a wider development programme. They are fun and highly effective. From a facilitator's point of view they are easy to learn, adapt and deliver.

Jonathan Aylwin, C2C Program Manager (Global Industrial), TE Connectivity

I have used Northgate products over the years, starting when I was Training & Development Manager for Virgin Atlantic Airways, and found them easy to facilitate, fit for purpose and both instructive and enjoyable for participants.
