Give each person 5 toothpicks, they must put one down each time they talk. Note the order in which they go out.
On 1 scale of 1 to 10, where is your life right now? Imagine increasing that by a point every six months. That’s what I do for my clients.
Qs: What did it feel like to use non-dominant? Is your right hand better than your left? Are righties better than lefties? (No….) This is about preference
Discuss the order in which they ran out of sticks.
Extroverts often don’t know what they think until they say it out loud, in front of other people…
Introverts sometimes don’t know they haven’t told you what they were thinking
Take 30 seconds and write about this.
One of my favorite J-P exercises is to have everyone line up--without talking--from right (responsibilities first) to left (enjoyment first) based on where they fit on a the continuum of "I take my work seriously, and can enjoy myself only after I've taken care of my responsibilities" and "First and foremost, I must enjoy what I do. It is easy to be responsible and committed to work I enjoy.“ After everyone gets in position, give them the opportunity to discuss with one other person why they chose their current position, then engage in large group discussion...asking for volunteers to share. Although you instruct them to do this exercise without talking....you can bet the Es will begin to talk...it's just how we learn! If this fails, have them descrbe their work space, based on how neat and organized.
