Can a team identify the color and shape of these objects whilst wearing a blindfold?

PURPOSE

This 'advanced version' of the Colorblind I game provides a greater level of challenge than the original Colorblind for new groups, and those familiar with the process

Key points:

  • Requires more detailed descriptions
  • Needs more accurate discrimination between shapes and a greater capacity to hold and retrieve information.

Colorblind Is a challenging, entertaining and innovative exercise, portable enough to be carried in a briefcase, simple to set up in the smallest or most formal of training environments and with an enormous variety of applications.

This Colorblind set comprises 36 colored plastic shapes (compared to 30 with Colourblind I) and 12 eye masks for participants to be blindfolded.

HOW IT WORKS

The trainer removes 2 of the colored plastic shapes and the remainder are spread out in front of the participants.

The objective of the exercise is for the group to establish the shape and color of the missing pieces.

Participants may not exchange or pass the pieces between group members

The question, "What color is this?" will be answered, correctly, as many times as it is asked. No other questions will be answered.

The Colourblind game is used Internationally by trainers and teachers, who have realised its potential to:

  • give access to learning about a broad range of organisational issues
  • engage individuals in their continuing development
  • add a dynamic and creative dimension to any training repertoire.

MAIN CONCEPT:

Colorblind II is a problem-solving exercise designed to illustrate how individuals make sense of situations by drawing on their previous experience and knowledge, and how they attempt to convey to others their understanding of these situations. Colorblind II seeks to establish and emphasise common meanings, by drawing upon spoken language as its primary learning tool.

This exercise, the second 'Colorblind', provides a greater level of challenge than the original; specifically designed for more able groups or those who wish to test the application of skills acquired in Colorblind I. Colorblind II requires more detailed descriptions, more accurate dissemination and a greater capacity to hold and retrieve important information. In short, it is a more demanding exercise – letting groups delve deeper into communication strategy – that complements and advances the skills developed in Colorblind I.

More specifically Colorblind II:

  • Develops application of principles and skills acquired in Colorblind I (communication, team work, interdependency etc)
  • Can be used to identify language and communication difficulties within an organisation
  • Explores the process of applying learning from one experience to another
  • Identifies the need for organisational change and understanding
  • Further develops the notion of interdependency
  • Highlights the need for both effective team and individual skills
  • Color Blind sets guidelines for giving and receiving effective feedback.
  • Other skills Colorblind II develops include: team management, verbal communication and coaching/instruction skills.
