The concept behind the activity
Let’s be honest: Who really knows what the bigger picture is? Caught up in the hustle and bustle of our working lives, it is all too easy to lose sight of our goals. In the midst of the ups and downs of the day, no one knows which is the right way to go. So, how exactly will we manage to re-focus our efforts on what really counts? PerspActive perfectly illustrates the challenges that teams and leaders face each day. The key to successfully completing this learning project is to find answers to two questions: “Where are we now?” and “Where do we want to go?”
Facilitating the activity
Each of the participants holds one or two strings. The ball is placed in the opening of the transport tube and the group’s task is now to use their skill to move the ball in three dimensions through the twists and turns of the tube so that the ball exits the other end of the tube and lands in the target basket. The specific challenge they face is to literally keep their eye on the ball, tracking where it is at all times and whether it is going in the right direction. And this involves activating all of the different perspectives of the team members.
