The Aliens Have Landed |
This game is a creative combination of dumb charades and Pictionary. This game can be useful for teams with language and cultural differences. Imagine aliens have landed on Earth and are interested in learning more about your company. They don’t understand any of our languages, even sign language, so you would have to explain your company to them in a visual sense in which they can comprehend and learn about your company.
How The Aliens Have Landed adds value to team?
The Aliens have landed is the ultimate game for breaking that language barrier. Due to the current pandemic, firms and companies have been hiring people from different states as well as countries. Sometimes, they all don’t know the language that the others speak and so, communication can be very difficult, something that would significantly limit collaboration. By breaking the language barrier, it removes awkwardness and discomfort that would otherwise be there due to cultural and language differences.
Culture Inclusivity
It often happens that some people are of a really different culture than the others. This makes them feel left out and due to this, they avoid conversations. To prevent this from happening, this activity allows the employees to feel like they are a part of something as well as give them a feeling of belonging. This also avoids discrimination against cultures, something which is rather not given much importance to.
Due to increased communication, it is a lot easier for the team to work together and brainstorm as they no longer feel unfamiliar to each other. The awkwardness is gone and the coworkers no longer feel like strangers even though they are worlds apart when it comes to their culture. This helps in improving collaboration due to enhance cohesiveness in the team which would have been rather very difficult otherwise.
The teams need to support the goal and visions of the company and be aligned with what the company is striving to achieve. This game enables just that. It ensures that all the members in the team support, promote and strive for the same goals that the team, as well as the company, has. You can determine whether a particular member understands and stands for the same things through this game. Without alignment, there is no real purpose and benefit of any work to be done, because the members would have hypothetically taken different trains to different destinations, leading to a lost cause.
In this activity, the members have to have a sensitivity to the situation – which is that they need to know and acknowledge the fact that aliens can’t understand their language and because of that, they need to step in the boots of those aliens and think how they would understand the knowledge that the employees want to share. It is important for employees to feel empathy and understand other people to build strong connections.
