To increase the creative and expressive aspects of the above activity, the exercise can be altered by asking first, (instead of using matchstick people images), that team members should devise a personal logo or symbol to represent themselves (something simple, quick, recognisable), which they should use instead of the matchstick person. In all other respects the exercise can be played out unchanged. This adapted version does not necessarily require coloured pens.
The activity is for people and teams of any job-roles and ages. Young people will especially enjoy it.
The adapted exercise can be extended by discussing the mix of strengths and capabilities in each of the teams or the group as a whole..
