StringBall

Handle with care

$154.00

StringBall demonstrates a common workplace dilemma -- that the people who 'see' and assign the work are not always the ones who 'do' the work, and that clear communication between the 'seers' and the 'doers' is imperative for good teamwork.

StringBall

Set your sights higher

$154.00

Like so much of what we do in organizations, this exercise requires planning, coordination and teamwork. All involved need to hold up their end and the stakes get higher with every block that's placed. Try the Special Edition with inlaid walnut and extra cuts for increased complexity.

In a group where most of the participants are wearing blindfolds, the 'blind' must find a way to move a small ball balanced on a metal ring from one wooden pedestal to another using only strings attached to the ring. The 'sighted' few in the group can direct the blind how to move their strings as a group, but they are not allowed to touch the movers, the strings or the ring, and can only use verbal instructions to lead them. It looks easy, but if the ball falls off the ring, the group must start all over -- just like real life!

How you set up the two pedestals depends on your goals and your group's capabilities. You can set them on smooth or bumpy terrain, at the same level, or at different heights (such as the floor and a desk). You can even put an obstacle such as a chair or box between the two pedestals. For a real high-stakes challenge, you can try this activity outside with a raw egg instead of a ball.

This activity is ideal for addressing manager / employee communication, leadership style, information shortages and project visualization.
