The Big Picture team building exercise commences with individuals joining into small teams. Teams collect brushes, paint, a diagram outlining their individual canvas and, a blank canvas. They then set about as a team to mix paints to create the right colours and paint their canvas. Soon into the exercise, teams realise that in order for the overall artwork to be successful they need to collaborate with other teams. Once complete, the highlight of The Big Picture is the final reveal where, following a debriefing session, the masterpiece is unveiled to all participants for the first time, which always results in loud cheers and thunderous applause.
Every now and then it is important to step back and look at the ‘big picture’, particularly when looking at an organisation and how its people operate and communicate internally. In The Big Picture the importance of teamwork, cooperation and communication is reinforced through the process of painting an artistic masterpiece of truly epic proportions. Prior to the activity, our graphic designers work with you to create an artwork that is reflective of your goals, values, mission and vision. Inspirational in its scale, and with a spectacular reveal, The Big Picture is truly a golden moment for any company to celebrate a shared vision and be inclusive with its employees.
There was lots of good discussion during the debrief which provided some insights and action points that was immediately applicable back at the workplace. And our Big Picture which is now hanging proudly at our office reminds us everyday of what we are capable of as one team.
Banking and financial services organisation use The Big Picture as part of leadership development program.
