Experiential Learning examples reviewing Moon Ball Game.


During the MOON BALL game we asked the team:

What does the ball symbolize for you?

  • A team.

  • Move like a ball, all together, in the same direction.

  • And if it falls, nothing happens, we would get up again.

  • What do you need as a team?

  • Know more about each one.

  • Accompany more, transmit more of what I know.

  • Put a positive spin on things.

  • Be more patient, and less stubborn.

  • Support, look at what needs there are and facilitate that they are carried out.

  • We lack appreciation and trust.

  • I put more emphasis on achievements.

  • We lack communication with colleagues.

  • we need consensus

  • we need more equipment

  • We need to develop concrete objectives.

  • More and better planning.

  • Some thoughts after the game, after asking the following question:

What would we need for our day-to-day, as a team?

  • If there was more communication and more patience, there would be changes, we would discover different ways of acting and we would have greater and better results.

  • Staying with an idea that is useless is a waste of time.

  • We would avoid frustration if we advanced goal by goal, step by step, fulfilling them.

  • More patience and….more active communication.

  • Trust in a partner.

  • Failures and achievements are part of the whole team.

  • With everyone's support, we were achieving good results.

  • We have marked the objective, with the ball, and we have achieved it.

Experiential learning seminars are eminently practical, games and movement allow us to express more naturally what we feel and what we need, and the team manages to experience through the game how they can work better as a team and what needs to be changed in order to be more effective and proactive.

There are common subjects or themes that we work always on, during team building, they are recurrent themes that the team always brings up some examples are:

  • Strengthen team and staff performance.

  • To motivate.

  • Develop our skills and competencies.

  • Discover our values and the values of other colleagues.

  • Open a proactive space for communication.

  • It gives depth and fixes learning to its full extent.

  • Stimulates creative thinking.

  • Enhances employee morale and personal responsibility.

  • Acts effectively to the satisfaction of our internal and external customers.

  • Strengthens our leadership skills in a practical way.

  • Help people discover and value the skills of other team members.

  • Have fun, laugh, and relax.

It is easy and accessible to measure the impact and return of experiential training, but for this, it is necessary to establish and implement coaching process tools that facilitate and maintain a constant learning curve.
