Opposite Debate Communication Game
Purpose: Getting to know you, communication
Group Size: 4+
Directions: This is a great exercise to increase feelings of empathy in the group. Choose some contentious issue (not too contentious – use your discretion) and then find a statement that the group seems divided 50/50 on. Now, they have to debate the issue, but the trick is they have to debate the issue from the opposite point of view. This can lead to some very interesting and illuminating conversations.
