To interact & share is a feature of many program outcomes because it helps build & strengthen relationships
Group games and activities are one of the most powerful (and attractive) ways to invite your group to interact and share.
These experiences are often simple and fun, so they are ideal for attracting the attention and full participation of your group.
Essential Benefits of Inviting Groups To Interact & Share
In recent decades, research has shown that the most successful programs in the world are those which intentionally build and develop positive, trusting and healthy relationships.
The key here is intentionality. Simply throwing a group together in a room and expecting them to get along is tantamount to disaster. Yet, sadly, this is often the default mindset of many program leaders.
Focus your program intentions on building connections among the members of your group, before you launch into the delivery of your content, no matter what that content is. Invitations to interact and share may be met with initial resistance, but if presented in a fun, non-threatening manner, you can expect your group to quickly respond.
Almost without exception, groups remark that they feel positively refreshed and energised soon after a participating in a series of, often, brief experiences in which people are invited to play, interact and share.
A classroom, training room or conference auditorium filled with warmth and energy is a wonderful experience for everyone. Trust is developed slowly, and before long people are interacting in ways that would not have been possible without your invitation.
