This team building activity can be implemented many different ways. Traditionally this team building Sydney original works by passing out a notebook to each employee and has them write one journal entry. The entry can be about any topic in the world, with the only exception that it cannot be based on real life, accurate history or anything factual about the common workplace. In this version, employees are asked to write the article at the beginning of the session, before any other icebreaker activities take place. Then, as the meeting progresses, the instructor collects the journal entries and mixes them up. After the initial icebreaker, or at any other time during the day, the instructor passes out the journal entries at random. Then the group works together to evaluate the ideas in the journal and try to guess who wrote each one.
