Practise & build communication skills with our fun, interactive & team-building activities


Expressing thoughts clearly in written and oral forms, articulating coherent instructions and opinions, listening effectively and motivating others through powerful speech have always been highly-valued skills.

In the 21st century, these communication skills are considered more important than ever.

There is an overwhelming volume of communication in our lives today. Individuals and groups need to be able to determine which sources are accurate and which are not.

Fluent reading, writing and speaking skills are essential too, especially in an ever-expanding global marketplace in which technology is leveraging relationships that span multiple time zones, cultures and languages.

There has never been a group I have worked with that did not benefit from improving this essential skill. The more effective an individual or a group communicates, the more success they will achieve.


Group-based Experiences Build Communication Skills

Experiences which develop communication skills provide an opportunity for people to share their thoughts, feelings, intentions and behaviours more effectively.

Here is a short list of experiences which focus on the development of communication skills, which occur in almost all types of programs, including:

  • Practising the art and science of ‘active’ listening.
  • Participating in an exercise / project which requires the group to reach consensus.
  • Taking turns to lead the weekly meeting.
  • Repeating back what someone just said to explore comprehension.
  • Giving and receiving constructive feedback to an individual or group.
