'Moneygram' Activity

Additional Info

  • Hours: 1h - 3h
  • Participants: More than 10
  • Methodology: Virtual or Face to Face
  • Objectives:

    Care for the team's health and give them a comfortable environment to reduce stress.

  • Procedure:

    The main objective of this activity is to use coins to create a picture or diagram of an organizational system relevant to the team.

    • If the activity involves a large group, the room layout must enable people to make a display on a table or floor where others can see the display clearly. There should be ample space for group members to work around.

    • Coins come in various values, sizes, colours, years and designs. Encourage team members to use the different qualities of coins in coming up with their own diagram. Coins may be stacked or placed side by side.

    • This exercise provides a completely different way for people to interpret and present their own view of a particular situation. This enables a tactile, fresh, liberating and more objective way for people to express and share their perceptions.

    • If there are limitations using real money in the exercise then playing cards can be used instead, which offers another perspective and different interpretations.
