The Wheel - The Importance of Teamwork


This game can be played in about 10 minutes. In total, allowing for discussion and evaluation, we recommend allowing 30 minutes.

• To demonstrate the importance of teamwork.
• To show how, by working together, we have the potential to achieve more.
• To encourage participants to consider the dangers of an overly competitive workplace culture.

Skills and Behaviours Tested:
Teamwork, collaboration, leadership, avoiding assumptions and problem solving.

Group Size:
A minimum of 2 participants are required for this exercise.

Useful For:
Staff at all levels.

You'll Need:
• A ‘The Wheel’ game board for each team.
• One die and counter for every game board in play.
• Prizes. (For example, a pile of wrapped sweets, or mini chocolate bars.)

If playing the alternative version of the game you’ll need up to a maximum of 8 counters for every game board in play.

This module provides a superb introduction to any training around teamwork and co-operation/collaboration, and has been used successfully with participants at all levels within an organisation, from junior clerical staff to directors. It also provides an ideal introduction to training around the service chain, and internal customer care.
