I really love this activity because of how versatile it is. I use it for so many things, but I really love it for discussing communication and the importance of defining language, specifically language around organizational values, norms, and principles.
I have always done this one without holding hands, and recently have added two more directions: turn left (90°turn to the left) and turn right (90° turn to the right). my intention for groups is that they define and own as much of the process and experience as possible. this addition begs the question “when we make a turn, which way becomes in? is it our new forward, or is it the direction we experienced as “in” during the framing? maybe we need to redefine it or our set up altogether?” I give that conversation back to the group and ask them what they think, and encourage openness to change if the way they define it is still disrupting their ability to navigate the challenge.
I’m so glad you have enjoyed JIJO and now, as a virtual exercise. Have FUNN 🙂
I have loved this activity for years – thank you so much Mark for this – today I will use it for the first time virtually to enhance body-mind coordination! Am so looking forward to it. Cheers & God Bless
This game is great to play when kids get off the bus! It gets them moving after a long ride. I love all the variations!!
This activity is why I’m connected with Playmeo! A random google search came up with Mark on YouTube presenting JumpIn, JumpOut. It is my opener for nearly every group I facilitate. Circles as small as 10 and as large as 150 from manufacturing to Microsoft, this activity immediately gets people active, connected and laughing. For huge groups or big groups in awkward spaces, you can do multiple circles.
So pleased you stumbled across me and playmeo Steve. Welcome aboard. May the fun continue for you and your groups…
Great activity especially with the younger kids. Very useful when you want to focus the group as well as they have to listen to every instruction.
