The Shrinking Vessel Game
The shrinking vessel is a typical icebreaker game, which requires a handful of people and a rope. The idea is, that you’re in a situation of standing on a sinking ship.
The aim is to remain within the borders of the “ship” as possible. In our case the area encircled by a rope is the shrinking area, so the shrinking vessel’s board.
For this you have to bring your creativity and a bit your athletic self on. As you’ll be standing very close to each other, and some will sit on your shoulders, it’s the perfect game to bond and break the ice between people.
You will need a rope or string. Using the rope, make a shape on the floor everyone can fit into.
Slowly shrink the space over a time period of 10-15 minutes. Work together to figure out how to keep everyone within the shrinking boundaries.
This game is important for people to work on adaptability to change, Why adaptability is important for problem solving? Adaptability is highly associated with cognitive diversity, which helps teams solve problems faster.
Innovation and disruption are happening faster than ever before. People, teams, and organizations that can adapt will come out on top.
