Know your team’s strengths
The simulations makes visible not only the strengths of different people, but also how team members see and feel each other. Often teams discuss their views on their colleagues during the simulation and create a common understanding of effective division of work.
The essence of this simulation consists of different factors affecting team work, including concentration, creativity, tolerance to conflict, and performing. The simulation frees the mind of the work roles and provides an opportunity for discussion on hidden strengths and different roles at work and at spare time.
In the background story, your team has decided to participate in the legendary Oktoberfest in Munich. This is a story of your travels to Germany. The exercise consists of 10 short situations along the way. In each situation, you need to solve who in your team would be the best person to solve the case at hand. After each situation, there will be a facilitated discussion where the choices are explained and others’ views are heard.

The simulation is based on McClelland’s motivational theory, Jung’s personality theory and Belbin’s team roles. On the basis of these theories, we have chosen such themes on team awareness that facilitate discussion on the most important areas of learning and preferences affecting the team’s operations.
- Create mutual understanding on team members’ preferences
