TOOL | A Challenge in Hypnosis - The Power of the Give and Take

Community Engagement, Tools, Megan Wanless

This tool offers a simple and fun exercise that can help break down barriers between group members and provide a space and context to play, reflect and share with one another before diving into the task of working collaboratively.

It can be used as a standalone ‘ice breaker’ at the beginning of a community gathering, or in conjunction with other exercises and built upon over time with groups whose work is long-term and ongoing.
