Conflict management and resolution is best taught through experiential learning and The Tower of Babel is possibly the best activity in this space. In just 75 minutes, you will appreciate the importance of transparent communication while you attempt to build a tower that seems almost impossible.
The difference between teams and work groups is their level of open communication and interdependence toward common goals. The Tower of Babel is one such activity that enables teams to tackle various constraints – often self imposed – to build a tower to certain specifications. The keys to success are transparent communication and conflict management.
The utilization of building blocks and children’s toys make this a fun activity but the learning is serious.

How they achieve their goals and objectives is what enables the learning and implementation of effective communication and conflict management.
