Larger Than Life Challenge

Everything bigger than life attracts a crowd – Gunter Grass

One story that captivated many of us in school, was Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. The story of the Lilliputs in particular had us enthralled and fascinated. Many hours would pass by in idyllic dreaming and in amusement of the larger than life adventures he led.

What if – we could recreate the larger than life stories? Better still – what if a corporate team has to come together to not just create the stories but the larger than life characters too?! Wouldn’t that be awesome fun?

FocusU invites you to the Larger Than Life Challenge!

Anything this good though, cannot come easy! The activity calls for intense intra-team and inter-team collaboration. The challenges are many – what is the story? Which team does what? How do we make these giants agile? …And yes, how do we dress them up in character?

Once the challenge is rolled out – the whole area turns into one buzzing shop floor with different teams immersed in negotiating their individual challenges. In the meanwhile other teams swarm around the entire space trying to join the dots to make the entire story and act come alive! As the clock ticks on and the Facilitators build up the frenzy with catchy music and nearing deadlines – teams give finishing touches before the final performance is staged. The rest is to be seen to be experienced.

A few key parameters:


Is the Larger Than Life Challenge right for your team?

This activity is perfect for medium sized to large teams where we would like everyone to be working towards one big objective – and where the importance of both intra-team and inter-team collaboration has to be highlighted. The activity can also be modified around themes like aligning to a single vision, taking initiative and ownership and displaying leadership.

Take your team back into Gulliver’s Travels…. And challenge them to put together a larger than life performance!
