About

Time:
The exercise in this module can be completed in about 30 minutes. In total, allowing for discussion, we recommend allowing about 60 minutes for this module.

Aims:
• To encourage participants to communicate effectively in order to gather all the information available.

• To encourage participants to work co-operatively to solve a shared problem.

Group Size:
This module can be used with larger groups of between 6-10 participants. It’s not suitable for 1-1 training.

Useful For:
Staff at all levels.

You'll Need:
• To ensure every participant has a different ‘Gossip’ Brief. You might like to distribute these by email in advance of the session.

Notes:
This communication exercise is based on a logic puzzle. It’s a challenging exercise, made more so when using video conferencing. However, it illustrates, very powerfully, the need to control online discussions, to allow everyone a voice, to speak one at a time, and to listen carefully to what others are saying.

You will need a minimum of 3 participants, whilst 6 is the optimum number for the exercise. We do not recommend attempting this exercise with groups larger than 8, but if you must, we have included additional Gossip Briefs that enable the exercise to be used in groups of up to 10.

Please note that where there are more than 6 participants, some of the ‘gossip’ will be duplicated.

• Face-to-face discussion.
