 letters in the following triangle.
FL Q PR W NI TA V M B X S DY C O J Z E V H K
Team Building Exercise

FL Q PR W NI TA V M B X S DY C O J Z E V H K
Team Building Exercise 
Now compare your results with those at your table. 
First, add together your individual scores and divide by number of people for an average score.
Tally a collective group score by counting each correct letter --the group gets 1 (one) point for every letter anyone in the group gets in the correct position. 
There are no multiple points for multiple people in the group getting the same letter and placement correct. 
Then...
Team Building Exercise 
Let's try it again... 
Make a plan with those at your table for improving the group's score.
