This activity is great for fostering and recognizing team work.
I have done it as an opening or a closing activity.
It is called the token of appreciation. Here is how it works:
- Bring a chocolate box to the retrospective
- Ask people to form a circle.
- You can start as a facilitator by saying: “I would like to give a chocolate for Paulo in recognition of that time when he helped me with…“
- Then you give the chocolate box to Paulo and ask him to repeat the gesture.
Below are two photos from this activity when used on a large group retrospective.
