This simple exercise makes people aware of the impact of change and how they feel about it.|
Ask the participants to fold their arms. Then ask them to fold their arms the other way round. Wait in silence for a few moments before asking them to unfold their arms.
Debrief by asking: how difficult it was to fold their arms the other way; what it feels like with their arms folded the other way round; and did they have an urge to unfold or re-fold their arms.
Just before they are due to go on a break, ask the participants to put their watches on the other wrist. When they return, debrief by asking: how many people have already returned their watches to the usual wrist; how many times they looked at the wrong wrist during the break; and how it felt having to change the way they wear their watches.
