The Amazing Race kicks off from a pre-decided exciting area where participants will be divided into teams and accompanied by drivers, to move from location to location across Dubai,  solving clues and riddles along the way. The first team to return to Base Camp after having  solved  all the clues, wins.


This highly interactive game will engage the team with a seemingly simple enough challenge. In  reality the objective can only be achieved through a combination of teamwork, collaboration, ingenuity and resourcefulness.

Each member of the group will be assigned a number that corresponds to a plate number.  These plates have been placed on the floor in a pre determined manner in a square measuring  3×3 meters. The team will have to drop a bean each into the corresponding plate without it  spilling over. If it does, the team will have to start from the beginning..


Taboo is a highly active and engaging activity. A  participant will be given a specific word with synonyms provided which he/she will not be allowed to say (Taboo!).

The participant will have to give the others clues for the chosen word without uttering the Taboo list of words. The participant with the most points wins. Destressing with colleagues during this fun game is ensured.

A further level of customization that can be applied is  to keep the themes company (and/or individual team)  focused. This allows for an even higher level of engagement during the game.


Snakes and Ladders, known originally as Moksha Patam, is an ancient Indian board game regarded today as a worldwide classic. It is played between multiple players on a gameboard having numbered, gridded squares. Several “ladders” and “snakes” are pictured on the board, each connecting two specific board squares.

The game is a simple race contest based on sheer luck.  The historic version had root in morality lessons, where a player’s progression up the board represented a life journey complicated by virtues (ladders) and vices (snakes).  We will launch a company customized version ensuring   enormous amount of fun. Each step may lead to a challenge or action item depending on the duration desired.


Empathy is being recognized as the #1 job skill, so it’s no surprise that hundreds of HR Departments, Training and Development Teams, and Managers are bringing the Empathy Toy™ to work! The Empathy Toy is an award-winning blindfolded puzzle game originally designed with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind to bridge the communication gap between visually impaired students and their sighted classmates It has since been turned into a learning tool designed for students of almost any ability.


Play this powerful exercise with any kind of training team to demonstrate how important to know our own attitude towards the goals. Participants will experience how good and bad goal-setting modify their performance and how different kinds of goal-settings might work for different people.

Everyone has to throw the balls into a bucket. If they can throw the ball from the fourth place, they get four points, from the third place it is three points and so on. At each round they have five shots.  They can choose any place. Before we start the game everyone estimates how many points he or   she expects to get. The instructor will write down the estimations and the real results on the flipchart.


This great game requires you teams of 3-5 to take  materials and build something to protect a raw egg. The eggs that survive a 10+ foot drop successfully complete the challenge.

At the end of the time limit, bring everyone back together.  Drop each structure in a consistent way. After dropping all structures, open them up and figure out which eggs have  remained intact. The winning team is the one with the least number of straws used.


This is another great game that can help demonstrate that we can achieve the seemingly impossible tasks we are sometimes faced with, if we use our team and our creativity to its best effect. This uses our ability  to build a plan that is most  efficient in passing the ball through the hand of the participants. At the end of   the exercise a debrief would be done by which participants would be asked ,multiple questions such as:

  • What principles/values/techniques did you use to achieve a improvement each time?
  • Were there some quantum leaps in performance?
  • What actually took place in your group?
  • What other improvements could have been possible?


We will measure stress levels of the participants through a device attached to the laptop and  teach them  how to shift from stress and frustration to balance and resilience with real-time  feedback, based on their own heart rhythm.


We will Ask everyone to write on a piece of paper THREE things about themselves which may not be known to the others in the group.

Two are true and one is not. Taking turns they read out the three ‘facts’ about themselves and the rest of the group votes which are true and false.

There are always surprises. This simple activity is always fun, and helps the group and leaders get to know more about each other.
