Try this balloon test to match your abilities with others

To demonstrate to any group their individual learning and working strengths, provide each with four different colored balloons. And get each one to select, from the boxes below, his or her eight main strengths.

Then get each person to blow the four balloons to match his or her main strengths. Thus, if you selected all four in the red box and only one in the blue, you'd blow your blue balloon up to a quarter the size of the red one. Then split your team into groups of four so they combine strengths from each quartile.

The balloon-match, as used above, adapted from original concept from Alistair Rylatt, Director, Excel Human Resource Development, P.O. Box 164, Newtown 2042, NSW, Australia.
