Glass Walking, in your bare feet, is possibly one of the most therapeutic things we do…
Why do it?
The benefits of walking on broken glass for you and your team are endless with some of the main benefits being:
Facing your fears
Challenging limited beliefs
There will also be a very evident boost to team camaraderie. You will be in awe at the silence in the room as each person walks across the glass and you will feel the tension and the support from everyone as you take your first step. The cheers when you step off will be just as deafening as the silence.
How long does it last?
As an absolute minimum you should allow 1.5 hours for this event. The actual time required could be longer though depending on your number and desired outcomes. Our approach is flexible though and we can usually modify any event to suit the time constraints of your event.
If time is not an issue then we would recommend using the glass walking challenge as an opportunity to really develop your team. We can use walking on broken glass as a powerful tool for learning:
The importance of being, and remaining, focused
Being aware of how your work impacts others in your team
Working outside of your comfort zones
