Personal Map is a simple and effective team building activity that gets everyone more familiar with each other.
Running the activity
- Explain the Personal Map template: “a person personal map has a few areas for us to get to know more about each other”
- Describe each area for the personal map (pre-select the areas for your group: for example: family, education, hobby, currently reading, birthplace and current location).
- Ask the participants to individually fill their personal maps.
- Each person presents their personal map to the whole group
I have learned this activity from Ivan Ferraz. I really enjoy it for getting to know more about each other personal live. It is specially fun when people shares mice photos for each area.
Remote-team advice: This activity works well for remote teams. Use a remote board of your choice.
