We started this week’s activities with a fun challenge called “Conduct an Orchestra.” We drew positions in an orchestra. One lucky group member drew the task of Conductor (the “Director” for IBC purposes). The challenge for this person was to get the group to play a coherent rendition of “Three Blind Mice” using our musical instruments (recorders).

The Conductor could choose any strategy they wanted to get the group to achieve the goal (e.g. delegation, group rehearsals, individual practice time, etc.). After the final performance, we discussed some of the challenges associated with “directing” a band of misfits. Good times were heard by all.
