I use this teamwork activity to teach a lesson about win--lose (vs. win--win) consciousness.
People can talk for hours about the concept of win-win (see Habit 4 of Covey's "7 Habits") and what I like to do is get people out of their head and into the experience of win-win using this teambuilding game.
After people participate in this exercise they really "get" how seductive win-lose consciousness is and more importantly they realize the shift to win-win really does require purposeful intention.
Be sure to read the safety warning for this activity and the general safety guidelines HERE because people can get hurt playing this game.
