Dear Colleagues
Whenever we start any training program learners have to be drawn into listening mode.
Below is one small activity. It can also work as an icebreaker.
Activity: Tell the participants the following story. Ask them to listen closely and answer your question.
You are driving a bus. At the first stop five people get on the bus. At the next stop three people get off the bus and two people get on.
(Usually at this point participants will begin to try to solve a math equation. Let them do it.)
At the next stop ten people get on the bus and six people got off. What was the bus driver’s shoe size?
Usually participants will say, “How am I supposed to know?” or give you a
math problem.
At this point ask the participants to listen closely while you retell the story. Sometimes one or two participants will get the answer after hearing the story three times.

(The answer is: You are the bus driver. What is your shoe size?)
