Command Tasks are group problem solving exercises that can range from just having fun to being used in assessment centres to observe potential leaders. The tasks involve various types of props and equipment that challenge the thought process, involve the group and push the boundaries of time…
From a given brief the team must analyse the challenge and then work quickly to find the solutions. The tasks require the team members to bring together all their combined skills in order to work through the issues, manage the resources and come up with ideas.
Not always as easy as it sounds!
Use Command tasks as a way of observing team members in a safe and controlled environment whist allowing them to develop, explore and step up to effective teamwork, leadership, communication, interpersonal and problem-solving skills.
