Activity
Ask the participants to stand facing the wall at an arms length. Now, ask them to close their eyes & push the wall with full strength. The trainer here should generate excitement ,motivating the participants to keep pushing the wall with all their strength. The trainer can also add humor to the entire activity by telling every one that the wall is actually moving. After 2-3 minutes the trainer asks the participants to relax & open their eyes. Once the participants are back to their respective seats, the trainer now takes the feedback whether the wall has actually moved or not. The answer here would be obviously NO". The trainer now takes the participants to the importance of focusing on the Areas of Influence. The wall here denotes the Area Of Concern/Area of Non-Influence.

Their will be total chaos in the training room since every one is singing their own song.
