Creating team building events is an instrument in creating a happy and effective work environment, although it is not easy to make a decision on which type of event to use. And so, for your consideration, here are three team building ideas that are winners.
1.) It doesn’t make any difference how much money you have to spend, one activity that most companies can do, despite hard times, is Orienteering. This is a great way to build team and individual skills while participating in a fun and challenging outdoor activity.
2.) Very similar to Orienteering in many ways, an additional exercise to try is the Treasure Hunt. Decision making, leadership, and communication are the same type of skills that this activity calls for. Holding a Treasure hunt is great for younger groups of workers or students, and they can have a certain theme to build up enthusiasm. Prizes can attract participants and give them incentive.
3.) Sailing is an excellent exercise for team building as it is more strenuous than others, and is becoming more and more popular. Not only it helps improve communication skills and dedication among team members, but it also energizes all the members of the team. This is among the most extreme of all team building ideas, and it will help your team to improve a lot of different skills to use more effectively. The team will get stronger while enjoying themselves. Plus you have the added benefit of relaxing on a gorgeous yacht and enjoying the beautiful scenery, once all the difficult jobs of tacking, jibing, and lashing have been completed.
Of course, there are a number of other great team building ideas that you can choose from, but these three are the ones that enjoy the most success and popularity. And naturally, maybe they will help you think of something just for you… A modification on a subject maybe?
