Have participants list the names of five people they don’t know well in the organization. Based on what they DO know about each of them, ask participants to write what they think each person’s unique background might be and what that perspective might bring to the table if they worked together on a hypothetical project. Go around the room and ask the participants to state out loud at least one of the thoughts they had about the unique background of one of their co-workers, and why it could help improve a project or task’s effectiveness.
