What is Timelining all about?

Starting at the birth of the oldest team member and ending with 'today', it's a great way to foster team connection.

Instructions

The activity involves four steps.

Step 1

Work out who is the oldest in your group, and draw a mark on the left edge of the blue line (at "Go") to represent their year of birth.

Step 2

From this date, mark off the decades to today adding the small vertical lines and spacing them out for each decade. Then add the starting year of the decade in the text box.

Step 3

Next, get everyone to write down on the line the moments in their lives that are/were really important. Some examples may be:

  1. When and where you were born

  2. Where did you live when you were children

  3. Which schools you went to

  4. Significant moments in your childhood

  5. First kiss

  6. First partner

  7. Which university you went to

  8. Death of grandparents

  9. What was your first job

  10. Where were you living

  11. Why did you leave

  12. When did you meet your partner

  13. When did your children get born

Step 4

What are the highlights? Are there any patterns? What might this mean for the future?
