Blindfolded Builder Trust Activity

The overview

This is a communications based challenge and trust activity, which can be produced on a small scale for a short activity, or a large scale for a whole day. Teams are set a “building” activity (desk sized or larger), where the builder is blindfolded and must listen to their team-mates instructions to win the prize.

Is your team having trouble communicating?  Do you feel like you speak a different language sometimes?  Communication is not just about words, it is about body language, gestures, the words you use, how you use them and the tone of your voice.

This is a creative workshop designed to get you using all your senses and skills when communicating, by taking the most vital ones away – your sight and your hearing! The team will split into groups during the trust activity and have to create a structure that works!

The structure you build can relate to a particular work challenge you are having, or it can be something random and fun – you decide!
