The Challenge Bowl


Miro - The Challenge Bowl

The Challenge Bowl is a fun and easy way for team members to answer questions and complete short activities to deepen team bonds.

Pick one item from the Challenge Bowl each day to liven up daily meetings or run through the entire board to engage your team during virtual team lunches or happy hours.

How it Works:

  • 🗣️ You’ll need a logged-in facilitator to reveal hidden frames
  • 📝 Each team member takes turns selecting a challenge (numbered sticky note from the bowl). Tip: Use the color key to determine whether you select a silly question, thoughtful question, or a short activity.
  • ✅ The facilitator reveals the challenge and team members must answer a question or complete the activity before moving on to the next item.

Be prepared for some fun, giggles, and even some deep thinking. You can even customize the template to create your own Team Challenge Bowl tailored for your team.
