Activity participants face a simulated "jungle survival". They must reach agreement in this imaginary setting in order to succeed, and they learn why consensus produces the best decisions.
The subject of this simulation (jungle survival) is not the topic for learning. It provides an interesting, engaging, and entertaining way to introduce the concepts of consensus and synergy in decision making. These concepts are useful to all kinds of problem-solving and decision-making groups in organizations. First, participants attempt to make decisions on their own. Then, joining the group, they compare answers and attempt to agree on the best course of action. Like never before, participants will see the benefits of heeding advice and soliciting opinions.
Everything needed to conduct this activity is in the Leader's Guide and Activity books. The leader of this activity needs a copy of the Leader's Guide. The Leader's Guide directs the leader through preparation, facilitation, and follow-up. The activity leader does not need to be a skilled facilitator. Each participant in this activity needs a copy of the Activity book.
No one wants to write a team "pep talk" that could fall flat. Human resource professionals, team leaders, and managers piloting a team development effort, will want to conduct this refreshing activity with their groups and teams in any work setting.
