The Isn’t that crazy energizer is amazing for getting people talking and collaboratively creating a story (usually a funny one). It fosters engagement and everyone participation while being very easy to deliver as it is done verbally.
Step by step
Instruct the participants to form a circle
Identify the order in which the communication will flow (e.g. clockwise).
One person starts by saying “isn’t that crazy?”
The next person has to continue the story by adding 3 words
Then the next and so forth until the story ends.
It can go like this:
“isn’t that crazy?”
“That birds fly”
“But I know”
“a flying cat”
“That has superpowers”
“And laser eyes”
“Freezes mobile apps”
“but not ours”
“Because of kryptonite”
This is a really fun and simple activity.Another variation is to start with ˜Once upon a time”and ask each person to add four words.
Remote team advise: Its specially useful for remote teams, as it only needs an open communication channel.
