1. Think of the members of your work group or study group for a few minutes and consider their personalities, the dynamics of the group, the communication patterns and so on.

■ If they were a product of nature (flower, tree, bird, animal), what would they be?

■ If you were to draw a building representing their major characteristics, what would it be?


Fully discuss your answer with others in the group and compare responses.

2. Write a limerick starting with the line: ‘There was a fine manager called . . .’ OR write a six-line poem starting with the words: ‘If only I had . . .’.
