Well Done You! activity

Reflect on, acknowledge and celebrate aspects of Our Volunteering Culture your team does well

Activity outcomes

  • Get to know your team – discover and celebrate what your Team Members do well.
  • Develop your team – increase awareness of your collective strengths.

Activity details

  • 15 minutes (or longer)
  • Indoors/outdoors/in person/online
  • Any volunteer team

You'll need

Before you begin

  • If your team needs a light refresher on Our Volunteering Culture, you can share the link ahead of the activity.
  • Print and cut out the prompt cards.

The activity

  • Place the prompt cards into a hat (or similar).
  • One by one, each Team Member randomly picks a prompt card from the hat. They say which other Team Member has recently lived/exemplified the behaviour described. If they cannot think of someone, they put the prompt card back into the hat and pick again.
  • The highlighted Team Member has an opportunity to comment on the situation faced and what they did.
  • If there’s time, do another round.

Activity variations

  • As an alternative to prompt cards, print out the PDF version of Our Volunteering Culture and cut out the statements.
  • This activity can be done in various ways without losing its essence. It could be a short reflection activity to start a team meeting. It might also be done as part of a longer team review exercise. The duration of the activity depends on the size of your team.
  • Team Members randomly pick each other and identify a prompt card they feel that person recently lived/exemplified. This will ensure everyone is mentioned.
  • If the activity is done online, the facilitator can randomly allocate the prompt cards.


This activity asks us to reflect on what our fellow Team Members do well. You may want to explore this further.

What are members of the team good at? Do they make it look easy? Is it something others could learn from?

What do those on the receiving end of these observations think? Are they aware of their own abilities? How easily does dealing with certain issues come to them?

If using the prompt cards, see the reflection points on the opposite side.

  • To encourage your team to focus on specific behaviours, base the activity on a smaller and pre-selected number prompt cards.
  • Not everyone is comfortable with positive feedback, even as observations from by fellow members of the team. Use your knowledge of the team to sense the ‘room temperature’.
