Common Challenges and What to Do About Them
1. People don’t want to participate There are many reasons for this. One could be that the participants hardly know each other and are self conscious. Another reason could be that they feel uncomfortable or might be embarrassed with the idea of failing at a new task.
Tip: Be clear about the purpose of the activity
Remind them that in order for it to be team building, everyone must participate. Reassure them that everyone will participate (and no one will be singled out and maybe embarrassed). If the activity allows, have the less shy people go first (or you go first)
2. Unclear about directions Participants might be too excited or nervous and end up missing some key information.
Tip: Speak slowly as you explain the activity; pause after each direction to let the information sink in. Repeat what may seem like the obvious Start over and repeat the directions. Ensure any difficult ones are put in context.
3. Not enough materials Participants might join at the last minute.
Tip: Bring more than enough for all participants. Test the activity with the materials you’ll be working with
4. People don’t contribute to a debrief Some participants are more comfortable listening rather than contributing.
Tip: Reword questions only if someone says they didn’t understand; otherwise, pause (silently count to 10) after asking the question and give them time to think. Offer your own observation, then ask what others saw or felt that was similar or different from what you shared. As a last resort, call on someone by name to respond.
