A great way to bring co-workers together and build cooperation and communication at work is to have a little fun outside the office. Team building activities teach people how to work more efficiently together and tackle problems at hand.
Team building themes require attention to detail, thinking outside the box, and using creativity, and these developed skills will prove useful at work. Here are a few simple activities to incorporate at your next corporate outing.
Escape rooms are thrilling—they get your adrenaline pumping and provide a ton of entertainment, making your simple team building event out of this world.
What’s more, escape rooms really get your brain going, where you must look to other resources and novel ways to thinking to solve problems and make it out of there alive. Working together as a team will facilitate this freedom, and it’ll teach employees how to effectively collaborate on difficult tasks.
Not only is bowling super fun—especially when paired with rich appetizers and a round or two of beers—but also it instills a little friendly competition, which can be helpful in sparking motivation at the office. Yet, despite that edge towards the other team, you’re also honing your collaboration skills with your teammates, cheering one another on and getting to know everyone on a personal level.
It’s not likely that the majority of employees are also “Master Chefs.” Trying something new, such as cooking a delicious, creative dish, as a group, can be a wonderful team building activity. It requires attention to detail, passion, and communication, where partners work together to whip up something tasty. The best part? Everyone can then dine together afterwards!
Scavenger hunts requires a lot of complex thinking and energy, which can then carry over into the office culture. Plus, as they are so much fun, time simply flies by! Set up different clues to work those problem-solving skills, and as a team, trust one another to come up with the right solutions and methods together.
