Simon Says lead by Michelle Cummings and Scott Gurst

The game of Simon Says is not a new game. In fact, many of us played it as kids and you either loved it or hated it. In the old version of Simon Says, if you made a mistake what happened? You were OUT! Now I am a visual learner, so I was always one of those kids that got out first. I was quick to follow what Simon did, rather than what Simon said. So I was familiar with the 'walk of shame' after you realized you had made a mistake and then had to leave the game, usually with your head down in disappointment.

As trainers and educators, don't we want our participants to learn from their mistakes? Don't we want to give them opportunities to try again and not to make the same mistakes again?

My friend Scott Gurst and I have put together a training video of a new version of Simon Says with new rules. Scott is the rocket scientist behind these new rules (no really, he is a rocket scientist!), and my new favorite training game. This video has been uploaded to YouTube as a free resource for any and all facilitators, trainers and educators. The video has both Scott and I as Simon, as our styles are very different. It's a great way to see how you can adapt Simon to fit your own facilitation style. Enjoy and go play!
