Team Building Games: Match Trick

This is a magic trick that I use to get the attention of key people in the group. 

For example, let's say your teambuilding workshop hasn't been introduced yet and you're able to be with the group prior to the start of the proram.  The participants probably suspect you're a presenter but they may not be sure.  I'll look over the room with the intent of picking out a few key people - - people who may become my ally during the teamwork training event. 

I'll then walk up to them and say I've got this cool magic trick to show them.  Almost no one can resist a cool magic trick so they always say "Let's see it."

I'll then show them the Match Trick.  I might repeat this with a few other people.

When I open up the workshop I'll mention the trick and share that the purpose of this teamwork training event is about building a high performing team.  Many people don't clearly understand how to build a high performing team.  And to some it will seem like magic.  In this workshop I will reveal the secrets to building a high performing team.
