Teambuilding Game: Consensus Ropes

The Consensus Ropes teambuilding activity is used to help teams discern best practices around decision making. 

As you'll see from the video (below), this teamwork exercise is setup to require the team to reach a consensus as to which of the five ropes is the one that acts like a key ring to the other ropes.  The group may not move forward until everyone is on board with the choice.

The game can be presented in a way that requires more refined consensus building skills (see printable instructions below).
