Superpowers and Kryptonite Exercise
This is a great exercise for team offsites. Get to know your teammates' strengths and weaknesses, and build shared understanding and empathy.
How it Works
Each team member adds their name to a list, and writes down 2-3 superpowers, and 1-3 kyrptonites. Kryptonite isn't necessarily a weakness, but something that doesn't allow you to perform your best. Set groundrules before: this should be a safe space where team members can feel free to share openly without fear of ridicule or judgement.
Allow 10 minutes for people to fill out their cards (adding descriptions to the cardback with more detail, so team members can reference these in the future). Then each team member should take 5 minutes to talk about their superpowers and kryptonite. It's often helpful to discuss ways they relate to one another, or to others' perceived strengths and weaknesses. Often the best teams are comprised of diverse individuals who help complement each others' different areas!
Pro tip: Have someone from outside the team lead this exercise, so you can focus whole-heartedly on sharing and listening, without worrying about facilitation and time-keeping.
