    I am a Trainer in Insurance company and my job profile is to give full details about the products as well as soft skills part is also included in that. Sometimes I feel the session is getting boring so I conduct management games. Please give me some innovative management games, which can be beneficial for my members.

    Re: Innovative Management games for Soft Skills Session?

    HI FRIEND,

    ITS GOOD THAT YOU ARE OUT IN A TOUGH JOB AND ARE ENJOYING ALOT.

    ITS GOOD TO SEE YOU THAT YOU WANT TO MOTIVATE YOUR COLLEGUES.

    I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST YOU ONE MANAGEMENT GAME, WHICH I THINK CAN MOTIVATE YOUR TEAM MEMBERS AND MAKE THE SESSION INTERESTING.

    HERE IT IS:-


    ACTIVITY: TIME MANAGEMENT – PAPER BOATS

    Here is an activity that I use in my Time Management Program, “The Paper Boat”

    Resources: Old News Paper

    Divide the participant into Teams of 4 to 5 members each. Ask them to select/elect a Team Leader.

    Then take all the team leaders out of the training hall, and explain them the activity by demonstrating them your self “How to make paper boats” the ones we learned in our school.

    Having demonstrated ask them if they have understood the same. Give them one small square piece of paper and ask them to make one so that you are assured that they have understood how to make paper boats

    Now Instructions for Team Leaders:-

    * You are given 4 sheets (4 pages of News Paper – they are rectangular in shape).


    * Your job is to build 40 boats all of the “Same Size” & “All must stand or should not sink flat when the activity is over”.

    * Quality (shape, finishing, appearance) and Quantity 40 boats both is important.

    * Time frame is 15 minutes max. from the movement you go to your team.


    Now let them complete the task; give them 15 mins.

    Debriefing
    :-

    1.Did the Team Leader clarify the goal to the team members?


    2.Where the roles clarified the team as to who will do what?

    3.Did the team members get overwhelmed by the activity or understood what is important?

    4.What was the focus on – Important or completion?

    5.What style of leadership did the team leader play?

    6.Did the team members ask for clarifications role/goal?

    7.Was there any planning for the use of Newpaper, people and the time available?


    8.How can they relate “boat making” to “doing work” in the organization?

    "The more you share, the more you grow”.

    HOPE I HAVE HELPED YOU IN MAKING YOUR PROBLEM RESOLVED.

    ALL THE BEST

    THANKING YOU.
