Fortune Cookie Debrief

December 9th, 2011

Have you ever had an awesome workshop, ropes course trip, or initiative with a group and the participants would have liked to share their thoughts if I hadn’t taken the words out of their mouth.
I picked up this debriefing technique along the way that encourages our participants to share and discuss while processing after an activity: The Fortune Cookie Debrief!
Experiential Adventure
Here is how the debrief works: First, collect fortunes. There are a few ways to accomplish this you can either buy fortunes cookies from a retailer, such as Wal-Mart, Target, or any other fine establishment. You can create your own fortunes by going to a website and dedication, but will totally be worth the hard-earned meals you must eat to collect all the fortunes you need.
Once you have collected your fortunes, use them as a debrief after your favorite activity, meeting, workshop or keynote address. Encourage each participant to grab a fortune out the pile of cookies or eggs, and let the participants pick the one that best described the group or activity.
I have found that most of my participants love The Fortune Cookie Debrief! They enjoy sharing their fortune and is absolutely perfect to use at the end of a long day to wrap up all of the group’s activities.
Play around with this debrief. Share it with your friends and let me know if you have any great ideas or suggestions to improve The Fortune Cookie Debrief.
