The Situation

It is approximately 10 o’clock in the morning on a mid-August day and you have just crash-landed in the Sonoran Desert in the southwestern United States. Your task is to rank 15 items salvaged from the plane in the order of their importance to your team’s survival.

Set in an unfamiliar location, the Desert Survival Situation takes the participants outside of their organizational roles and areas of expertise to a situation where only their synergistic problem-solving skills will help them to survive. For interactive team-building activities and exercises that are easy to implement, give these trusted development tools a try.
