The task was to build a shelter to prevent a raw egg from breaking upon impact from a 6-foot free fall. Each team only had a limited number of straws and an arms' length of scotch tape to build their protective apparatus. In the real world, we often have to make due with finite resources and time constraints to solve critical issues as demonstrated by this team building activity. The teams had to use their imagination and creativity and realized that only having a good idea is not enough. The next step is to expand on it and implement your idea into actions with your teammates.
It was awesome to see how our executives could succeed in this task!
