They say there’s nothing like a little friendly competition to bring people together. 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

How does the power of play influence success at work? Many people are working longer and harder, thinking that this will solve the problem of an ever-increasing workload. But they are still falling behind, becoming chronically overwhelmed, and burning out. Work is where we spend much of our time. That is why it is especially important for us to play during work. Without some recreation, our work suffers. Success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time you work. It depends on upon the quality of your work. And the quality of your work is highly dependent on your well-being.
