Working Together to Solve A Problem

Human Knot Challenge:

Starting in a circle, participants connect hands with two others in the group to form the human knot. As a team they must then try to unravel the “human knot” without breaking the chain of hands.

The team couldn’t succeed in the first attempt.

Human Knot Challenge, Attempt – 1
Human Knot Challenge, Attempt – 2

This activity was a great way to break the ice for the new team. It instantly built an understanding between the team mates and once that was accomplished, problem solving became much easier.

Consequently the newly formed team was able to figure a way out and unravel the human knot successfully in the 2nd attempt.
