The attorneys of Allstate Insurance gathered for a team retreat in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania at the Sands Resort and Casino. The coordinating attorney was seeking a fun and different activity to the end of the day and reached out to The Leader’s Institute® for suggestions. We recommended the Creating a Team Culture workshop. Hmm… is this the kind of unique event filled with the fun they were anticipating? Well yeah. However, they had us add the Charade Murder Mystery option to the workshop for extra laughs.
Attorneys Trying the Solve a Crime that They All Witnessed
I arrived on the scene and set up my PowerPoint presentation at the front of the room. I then warmed up the group with some introductions and handed out worksheets for participants to complete. While I covered the first few items on the agenda, there were several seemingly rude interruptions from the group. People were talking aloud, coughing, getting out of their seats, leaving the room… I played my part and put on my annoyed face. One of the attorneys returned to the room creating a ruckus. She then fell to the floor and was instantly pronounced dead! The Charade Murder Mystery had begun!
After I revealed my true identity (International Crime Fighter), I had the group identify the six suspects. The group decided to handcuff the suspects for everyone’s protection. The question then became, “Who Dunnit?” Details regarding a murderer, victim, conspiring individuals, illegal activities, and more started to unravel as teams examined the clues, interrogated the suspects, and began their own investigations.
Perfect Ending to Team Retreat in Bethlehem, PA
So, “Who Dunnit?” Well, if you were not there then we cannot tell. Nevertheless, one definitive fact remained; the group had that fun-filled activity they were anticipating. However, during the interrogations, they were laughing their heads off. Lots of fun!
