  9. Getting to Know You Find someone you don’t know well Each of you try to “read” the others drawing. Be ready to present your partner and their ideas to the group in about 10 minutes.

  10. Finding Your Bearings North- Find two people you know fairly well. East – Find two people who are relatively new to you. South – Find two people that look like they would be fun. West- Find two people who look eager to be with you. Page 46

  33. Climate Must be open

  34. Environment Must promote interaction

  35. Climate and its Effect on Training The “atmosphere” of the group’s feelings about being ready to learn to work… …must be established – at the beginning – (see Icebreakers Page 45) …must be maintained – throughout; …often requires as much as 40% of the total time AND … is directly related to the degree participants learn and apply their learning.
