Teambuilding Activity: Trust Fall

The Trust Fall teamwork exercise is a "classic" teamwork game because it's so effective at helping an individual and a team explore both how it feels to trust and be trusted.  The experience creates an opening for the team and the teamwork facilitator to have a real and meaningful discussion about how to create a high trust environment.

This is an advanced activity and should only be led by extremely competent people.
