The one minute Tower Energiser

The best workshops use changes in pace and energy to get the best from participants.

If your attendees look a bit drained after an intense task then try the one minute Tower Energiser.

At a suitable point between tasks give participants one minute to build the tallest tower they can from the LEGO on their table. Frame the task as a competition between tables - the tower should be free standing - no planing is needed - just jump in and do it - 3, 2, 1 GO!

Giving a countdown during the build "30 seconds gone", "10 seconds remaining..." will heighten to the participants sense of urgency. You'll find that the group is suddenly buzzing with energy, and this brief competitive interlude will generate excitement. Deciding the winners of the task may also awaken friendly rivalries that stimulate team bonding and cohesion.

This simple activity is one of our favourite ways of injecting fun and energy - let us know how it works for you!
