Getting off to a rough start can kill your fun team building event before things get going… and delays are a rough start.
It’s a huge bummer when you are excited about starting a fun team building event, but there is a delay because the entire group isn’t there yet. So you end up waiting…
Whether late arrivals had transportation issues, didn’t know the start time or just stopped to smell the roses on the way to the venue, delays will hurt your event.
One of the details you need to consider while planning your event is making sure everyone is aware of the start and end times of the event.
Ensure that reliable transportation is arranged if needed.
Plus, make a contingency plan for how to get things started while dealing with late arrivals.
Some contingency plans may include:
- When determining your end time, work possible delays into your schedule.
- Provide an incentive for participants to show up just a few minutes early, if possible.
- Plan ice breakers in advance to keep energy high during delays.
- Identify certain points during your event that provide a smooth transition for late arrivals, similar to an intermission at a show.
- Make sure that people who will be working on a team building project with late arrivals have notice that a change to their team structure is pending.
