Hands Down: A Team-Building Exercise!

Here’s a great team-building exercise to try with your Team Members.

1 – Spirit Fingers: Show your spirit for a team effort well done!

2 – Do the wave: Ask the group to form a circle. Begin to think about your department and the things you do well as a whole.

3 – Now your section: Ask each person in the circle to complete this sentence, “Hands down, we…”
Example: Marketplace – Hands down we make the best mocha frappuccinos!

4 – Win-Win: From the thoughts shared with the group, decide a favorite phrase to use as your group chant!

5 – Hands Down: It’s time to share some team spirit! Ask everyone to place their hand in the center of the circle, one over the other. The group leader shouts “hands down we,” the others in the group shout the favorite chant.

6 – And the win goes to: “Remember practice makes perfect!” What will your team shout next?
