Howto
Level of participation: 
high
Level of Difficulty to Facilitate: 
No specific skills required
Resources Needed: 
A flipchart with "I am the kind of person who..." at the top of the page and spaces for 10 answers underneath.
Pre-Work Required: 
The flipcharts should be prepared ahead of time.
Procedures: 

Give a flipchart page to each participant and ask them to complete the following statement 10 times: <br><br>
" I am the kind of person who..."<br><br>
This statement is difficult to answer with work-related responses and forces members to share more intimate information. Using less than 10 responses becomes too simple and does not achieve intimacy. Participants then place their page on their chest (like a sandwich board) and circulate silently, reading each others' lists. Participants generally discover things about one another that they did not know before and have fun doing it. Charts are then posted on the wall for the duration of the session.
