A group of people forms when they are able to share an experience, particularly one that has emotional resonance. The effect can be significant, for instance, like being stuck together on an island in the desert, or even trivial, like people being confused about some issue. The power of games is impressive. To bring together groups of strangers and make it feel more distinct by using an emotional trigger that is much simpler to accomplish than stranding all of the people on an island.
The majority of people believe that humans are most effective when they’re part of a group of about twenty people and games are a temporary (or more or less temporary) replica of that microcosm. Here’s a way to accomplish this:
This game is only for those older than. That’s from high school until about 95. This can also be done for those who use wheelchairs. It is best played with at least a dozen players and is an excellent choice for an entire group of strangers. In a professional setting, in addition to fostering group unity, the game also provides an excellent point of figuring out a solution and then taking action on it. If you’re not a dancer, you can still participate in this game by mocking dancing or even declaring it a gymnastic activity.
Buy a bristle. A regular floor-sweeping broom is the best. Janitorial push brooms aren’t much as effective (unfasten the head and have a go at making an attempt to dance pole). The most important characteristics include that it is human-sized height, simple to grasp using two hands, and light.-So that you are able to dance on it.
Get everyone together in a circle along with the broom (and the Broom) with the broom in between. Then announce that you’re going to perform a dance, and it’s their responsibility to discover the secret behind the dance. Feel free to share absurd information about the background, such as this is what your boss is doing in his office after closing the door, or you learned it from the Samoan witch doctor.
Create a huge show out of the preparation to dance (bow curtsy, bow, salute the broom, demand the dance, whatever) and then dance using the Broom. Turn around, make some silly motions, fancy steps. Sing. Whatever. The goal is to get everyone thinking there’s something to the dance they are able to emulate. It’s best to perform something more than one time.
After about 10 minutes, you will approach one of the participants within the circle, give the broom to them, and then say, “Now you do it.” This is the essence of the game: Following the show, hand the broom over to someone else and then say, “Now you can do it.” The rest is irrelevant.
You could prepare for someone ahead of time if you would like. If so, make sure that everyone is aware of the information they are aware it so that when they show and confidently give the broom, everyone is expecting the professional hand-off.
Perform as needed. Then, eventually, someone will get it and figure it out pretty quickly following that due to the sudden confidence and enthusiasm of the dancer.
You can immediately go to another event such as eating or the main gathering, or another game. However, you must do it with a smile so that everyone is able to talk about the game.
