Big Ball O’Questions

Open a meeting using a beach ball covered with 50 to 100 questions written in permanent ink. Have everyone stand in a circle and toss the ball to one and other. When the ball is caught the question closest to the left thumb is the one to read aloud and answer.

Note: White beach balls work best otherwise avoid those with dark panels.

A great exercise to demonstrate the effectiveness of working on one thing at a time. Support the idea of working through a prioritized list by taking each item to completion before pulling in the next piece of work.
