An activity to stimulate team work and trust between the participants by exercising different communication strategies.

Step by step process: 

Before starting the group has to discuss their strategy of communication.

One person is the shepard and cannot move from his/her place.
All others are sheeps, blinfolded and spread around the area.

The shepard has to communicate (non verbally, only with sounds) with the sheeps to make them enter the sheep pen (symbolised by a rope on the ground).
The game is finished when all sheeps are inside the pen.

No one may touch anyone else and after the exercise has started, no verbal communication may be used.

Materials and resources: 

A rope and blindfolds.
