While in Haiti, Bama HERD (Haitian Economic Research and Development) taught a group of Haitians business fundamentals through a few small lectures and a large amount of interactive activities. One of my favorite activities was performed by teams of two standing back to back. One member of the team had a picture and the other member had a piece of paper and drawing utensil. The team members were not allowed to turn around and see what the other had or was working on. The goal of the activity was that the team member with the picture had to describe the picture in such a way that their teammate could draw out the same picture. This was a way to enforce strong communication skills and teach that, without proper guidance, workers may not perform the way you want them to. The Haitians had a lot of fun and many of them were very successful at the task!
