Animaniacs Team Building Activity

Animaniacs is a new team building activity. The team creates plasticine models with the help of experienced model makers and then films a short animated film in the style of Wallace & Grommit. The film can be random and purely for fun or it can be on a specific theme which can be business linked.

Not only is this great fun but it depersonalises communication and this enables difficult subjects to be addressed in new and creative ways. The activity is overseen by expert model makers who will help the team to come up with a good animation. If business issues are the subject one of our experienced facilitators will work with the team, debriefing and ensuring that they get the maximum benefit from the activity.

    Interesting. So what conversations would you be having through this process that would need to be depersonalized?

      Many communication issues within teams can be helped by approaching them from an angle rather than head on. Activities, when well facilitated, can be one way of achieving this. Using models instead of people you can bring problems and situations into discussion without pointing the finger at specific people.

      We recommend half a day for most activities. We can run full days but the key is to keep people interested and fresh.
