Teambuilding Game: Air Lock

Air Lock is a teambuilding activity that emphasizes communication, careful steady movement, and team coordination.

This teamwork exercise is a "classic" get-your-team-from-here-to-there activity and is best left for groups that are patient.  Do not attempt this activity with a rambunctious hyperactive group.

I am trying to get the instructions to the FREE Team games in the most recent newsletter - the instructions do not say what to do? I receive the newsletter but do not know anything about a password

Hi Pam -- When you subscribed to the free teamwork ideas e-newsletter I sent you a username and password. I checked my logs and see that I did send you your login so now I suspect your spam filter (on your machine or ISP) is capturing some of the emails I'm sending you. Be sure to add my email address to your spam filter's white.
