How often is an instruction given at work, only for it to be wrongly or inadequately done, or not even done at all?
Without a clear and structured method of communication, the process leaves room for error, with messages often misinterpreted by one or more of the parties involved. This causes unnecessary confusion and counter productivity. In fact, a message is successful only when both the sender and the receiver perceive it in the same way.
Our communication game 'Get your message across' is one of our effective communication activities. It involves the participants taking on the role of different people in an organisation.
One person creates a model from the supplied blocks and they need to share the model with other members of the organisation. They meet with a Manager and describe the model to him/her but the Manager is not able to see the model.
The Manager then meet the Team Leader(s) and describe the model. The Team Leader(s) then meet their respective team(s) and describe the model to them. The team(s) then recreate the model from the supplied blocks.
At the end of the exercise, the original model is compared with the model built by the teams. This provides ample evidence for a debrief on effective communication!
This game teaches effective communication skill by replicating many of the issues that occur in the workplace; including:
