Magic Cane in team building

Magic Cane in team building

Team building games are a great way to bond and bring your employees together. But, some games can come off as boring, ineffective or plain childish. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite team-building activities that are both exciting and insightful.
The magic cane or helium stick game is a simple activity to see how teams communicate with each other and solve problems. The premise is that groups of 6 or 8 must lower a helium stick until it is lowered to the ground. Try to keep teams in even numbers. A helium stick is a thin, light-weight rod. You can easily find them on Amazon. It sounds like a simple task, but it is deceptively challenging. The group must create two lines on each side of the stick and face each other. With the stick lying horizontally in the middle, have each person put their index finger underneath it. Groups must start with the stick at chest level of the tallest person. Everyone must be standing on their feet when you start. (Some may try to find a loophole in the rules by starting on their knees.) At first, people will likely lift the stick or set it off balance. Remind the groups that every person’s index finger must be in contact with the cane at all times. If it slips, they have to start from the beginning. They also can’t curl their finger around the pole. It must sit there. Every person is needed to complete the task, so members must work together and communicate. This reinforces the idea that everyone is equally important, valuable and necessary for the team to succeed.
