  • Session Focus: Collaboration is about changing one’s orientation from only seeking help from peers to complete one’s tasks to offering help and enabling them first before expecting help from them. This session covers the elements like respecting dependencies and Building Trusting Relationships, taking ‘Individual’ ownership and initiative  and constantly aligning priorities with people who have a shared goal.
  • Activity in focus: Human Matrix : In this activity, participants must cross over a maze of wooden blocks arranged in a matrix with 4 quadrants. The group is divided into 4 teams and they are each given a specific route covering 3 of the 4 quadrants. There are rules that govern how the teams may use the blocks and under what circumstances the blocks may be taken away.
  • Learning Connect: The activity design establishes upfront the need to acknowledge and respect interdependence as the 4 teams try to reach their exits to complete the matrix, together. The learning for collaboration emerges when teams realise the impact of one’s actions on the team’s goal and how taking personal responsibility for the overall common purpose, is the key to successful collaboration.
