After over 20 years of creating, hosting, and experiencing team building activities, we have proof to back that up. People love a little friendly competition, so much so that most of our programs feature some competative elements.
Competition drives us to do better
Competition works as a motivator because it pushes us to exceed. Not only are we driven to exceed our own capabilities, but also those of our teammates and coworkers as well. Friendly competition in a relaxed setting, like a scavenger hunt or a card game, encourages people to work together and to spent time together, creating social bonds which strength teamwork. Taking it a step further, competition fosters cooperation, which is the backbone of good teamwork.
“Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.” ― Franklin D. Roosevelt
