Today we are at b and I have a short activity around boundaries.
What you'll need - a whiteboard or flipchart paper.
This activity can be done on two levels - individual and or with the team as a system.
In today's world of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) it can be useful in creating awareness around how boundaries help and hinder us in our work.
Draw a large circle and have everyone write in what are the things you want to focus in inside the circle.
Outside of the cicle identify things you are currently doing which really should be delegated, deferred or deleted.
As you look at both sides of the circle consider the questions:
Categorize each of the items outside of the circle. Is it something you are going to dump? Defer (until when?)? Delegate (to who?)
What changes do we need to make in terms of how you operate as a team to focus on those areas in the inner circle? What conversations do you need to have? Relationships do you need to leverage?
By focusing on those things in the inner circle, what's possible?
What are the next steps we need to take as a team?
Stay tuned for "C" in our journey of Team Building Activities.
With best wishes,
