thanks for your session on consequences. Here are a few ways I employed consequences that worked well. The 1st one involved keypad and incorporating a real business scenario from a company. It was about meeting sales goals, and what happens in the business world when you miss your monthly sales goal. So I set up keypad with 25 numbers. And set up the sales scenario that the group had to complete the keypad game in 25 seconds. You know, start behind the line, run to the circle do your thing and return within 25 seconds. If they didn't do it, I would add the 26 poly spot, and then they did the next attempt. And so forth until up to 30 poly dots unless they met the goal. and then it was about exceeding the goal. This metaphor fit well as a company that misses the monthly sales goal generally has to make up the difference in future months. Very fun and applicable with great conversation. Aligning consequences to business practices is effective. Have the group talk about this prior to doing a game, and then you set the stage. Same thing for sports teams. Inadequate performance on the field means lost games or lost yardage. So make that the consequence in a game -like gutter ball where mistakes can add distance to the whole game. And then there is the "penalty box" consequences. Write down 10 individual consequences on separate pieces of paper. put them in a container, and when a group makes a mistake, they simply pull out the consequence from the penalty box, and have to apply it to their team as they wish. In other words, who is person that cannot talk or must be blindfolded for the next 5 minutes. That's it for now. Be well and enjoy
