Communication

Need to toughen up your team’s negotiation skills? Here’s a fun way to do it!

Two teams are given two different recipes – and limited ingredients in skewed proportions: way too many potatoes and one little bottle of water to one team. Lots of chillies and absolutely no oil to the other. Only one jar of salt to go around. And more such complexities. The teams have to regroup, plan, and then, negotiate with each other to arrive at a fruitful (rather, a basketful), mutually beneficial barter.

And only with their hard-earned groceries do they then proceed to cook!
