A team development tool designed to teach team members to communicate effectively and to collaborate to achieve a common goal successfully. Polygon Puzzle™ is popular and powerful.

It’s been used in hundreds of organizations from all business sectors, including Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, AT&T, and Krutham. Polygon Puzzle™ was even used by the United States Senate.

Polygon Puzzle is a Level 1 Simulation, so it can be used out-of-the-box. 

We recommned pairing it with Team Performance Questionnaire

How it works

The puzzle can be used with small groups with up to 30 participants using a single puzzle, or with hundreds of participants using multiple puzzles.

• Participants (8-30 with one puzzle) are divided into working teams to assemble a twenty-eight piece, two dimensional puzzle.

• Participants are given written clues from a deck of thirty clue cards.

• The clues are evenly divided among the work teams, with no single team having sufficient information to solve the puzzle.

• The process consists of three phases; each phase is designed to allow participants to share information within their small team, then with the other teams, and finally to solve the puzzle as a group.

• The solution to the puzzle becomes clear when the small teams learn that they must work together.

• Works well with Individual Assessments like Change Style Indicator and Team Development Assessments like Team Performance Questionnaire.

“Polygon Puzzle was the highlight of our session. Everybody loved it! We will definitely use it again and again.”

Joni Vetrano, Training Manager
LaQuinta Resort & Club and PGA WEST

“I think why it’s been successful and powerful is because it can be done in less than an hour. We’ve used it with everything from kids to senior executives. And it’s always been successful. I don’t think we never had it not work.”

Donna Reichmann, Author, Polygon Puzzle

The Trust Building™ exercise is an effective, high-energy team development activity for exploring the challenging issues of effective team membership and team leadership, driven by building trust in teams.

The Trust Building™ exercise highlights the value of trust in teams while uncovering the gross negative impact distrust has on team morale and performance.

The exercise is based on three factors related to creating trust – competence, concern for others, and authenticity. Trust Building also examines the creation of distrust and how a team can manage distrust and foster trust within the team.

Trust Building™ is a Level 2 Simulation.

How it works

  • Participants (8-32 with one set of materials) are divided into 2-4 working teams tasked with reproducing the facilitator’s prototype.
  • Each participant takes on the role of either a Representative or a Builder.
  • In addition, one or two of the participants may be Distorters (either a Representative or a Builder), who will be attempting to sabotage the team’s efforts.
  • Each team is allowed to send one Representative at a time to view and make “mental notes” for the team related to the prototype.
  • The first team to successfully replicate the Prototype wins.

Why use it?

  • To learn how restricted or poor communication hinders the task
  • Understand how reduced trust has significant consequences for team process and team effectiveness – less information, less involvement, isolation, poor work results
  • To understand “labeling” someone as an outsider or untrustworthy makes it difficult for the person to be effective, and unable to recover without someone else’s help – thus others in the team need to accept a leadership role even if they are not in a formal leadership position
  • Learn, each team member has more positive and negative power than they realize to affect team outcomes. They can do so unconsciously, or can be aware and take responsibility.
  • To consciously build trust and openness increases cooperation and improves work outcomes
  • Understand working toward complete transparency provides information needed for problem solving.

Materials

  • One set of 36 Trust Exercise pieces for the facilitator to create a prototype
  • One set of 36 Trust Exercise pieces for each team to use (total of four sets)
  • 40 laminated role cards for team members in a plastic case
  • Instructions for different prototype options
  • CD-ROM with facilitator materials and resources
  • A Quick-Read, 1-page Facilitator’s Guide
  • All materials are designed for durability and reuse for many years to come

Logistics

  • Exercise Length: 1.5 hours without assessment, 2.0 hours with assessment
  • Number of Participants: 8-32 with one set of materials, many more if more than one set of materials is used
  • Space Required: 1 large room, 1 break-out room for each team, 1 room or secluded space for the prototype
“The debrief helped me understand how personal bias impacts trust how much trust or distrust impacts team performance. Very powerful.
