Sparkmon & Associates recently held A Marshmallow Challenge during our staff meeting. The idea came about from a TED talk on team building and collaboration and the notion that when it comes to team dynamics, kindergarteners do better than business school grads. Plus we got to play with marshmallows. Check out the TED talk that explains in detail what this challenge is and how it works:
The winning team and their creation are highlighted here, along with some of the other teams having fun with their creations featured in the gallery below. Will you use the marshmallow challenge at your next team meeting? We’d recommend it!
