Good old-fashioned charades can teach your team a lot about the importance of both verbal communication and body language. Also, it’s just plain fun, and as a result sure to help your team bond.
Give each individual a word or phrase. Have the first participant stand up and act out their word (without saying anything!)
You can create a list of words or phrases relevant to your company. Otherwise, you could try the following suggestions, some harder than others:
- Hanging up the phone
- Coffee break
- Late for work
- Put yourself in their shoes
- Cold transfer
- Live chat
While the traditional game has the person who guesses the word/phrase correctly perform next, it’s often easier and more efficient to assign turns no matter who guesses correctly.
