- Was there a leader on your team? Who was it and who decided who the leader would be?
We all decided to work together to TRY to get it done. Everyone participated in some parts that they know or had an idea.
- If you had no leader, do you think having designated someone a leader would have helped?
Only if they knew what they were doing, and had some kind of knowledge about the structure we were building. And made everyone comfortable being around each other where there is no awkwardness.
- If you had a leader, how did he/she do?
We were all leaders and we all worked together to find what would work and what wouldn’t work.
- How helpful was everyone on your team in challenging the process of building the tallest structure? Did anyone appear to be an expert?
Some of us knew what we were doing the others just gave some help while others actually tried to build and see what work and try to make it stand without breaking.
- Did any team members tune out of the activity out of frustration with other members or for some other reason? What could you have done to keep all members of the group fully engaged?
Two of them were out of it from the start, what I should have done better was to try to encourage them to participate and think of more ideas for us to do.
- Did you feel everyone’s ideas were well received during the activity?
Most of us had ideas that we thought of for different parts of the activity.
- How did you feel as the time limit was approaching? Did the pressure increase? If yes, was that helpful or not?
We felt pressured during the whole thing because we didn’t know what to build and we had no idea where to start so at the end we just made something that ended up not being able to make it stand.
- In retrospect, what could you have done better?
We could have had more time to think more, but we could have thought of different ideas that maybe would have worked and calmed down so we could think properly.
- Did you celebrate small wins? If yes, how did you do this?
No, we did not win at all, we couldn’t even make it stand for a second.
