The challenge takes place in the trucial states back in the 1800s. Families negotiate to increase their wealth, trading in dates, camels, fish, spices, pearls, water, money and the all important information.
This is a fun and interactive challenge, that is powered by communication, reinforces networking and the importance of positive relationships.
Split into ‘families’ and armed with a pouch of Arabian themed trading goods the teams are challenged with the objective of maximising their families’ wealth. They will need to understand what other families need using questioning and negotiation skills. Working on a win/win solution will be essential to succeed.
Reinforcing that information is power only when shared. Outcomes are very objective and final scores reflect the teams interaction and approach.
The Arabian Market event maximises on networking interactions and clearly understanding the value of information.
Learning and development outcomes
A quick and clever activity where teams negotiate and trade to maximise their returns. Although this is a competitive exercise, the most successful teams are those that collaborate with others to build win-win outcomes while at the same time focussing on their own bottom line results.
