Trust Building Game
The Trust Game is an exercise that demonstrates what trust is, how you become trusted, how you lose trust and finally, how you regain it once it has been lost. Working in teams of six or seven, the players must replicate a three dimensional prototype that is created by the facilitator. Sounds simple enough, right?
Roadblocks along the way are part of the game’s design to make this exercise fun and topsy turvy until the end. The debrief reveals so much about how teams work together, how they perceive each other, who might be working to sabotage the project. The end game is building trust among the players, the importance of working together for a successful outcome.
The Trust Game can be used multiple times as the design of the prototype is always different and mixing up the teams can engage an entire organization in team building and trust building.
