How well do you know your co-workers, company and company culture?
You’ll have a great time ﬁnding out with Survey Says – inspired by the ever so popular game show: Family Feud.
Since its premiere in 1976, Family Feud has aired during 31 non-consecutive seasons. Created during the increasing popularity of the Goodson-Todman game show, Match Game, by Richard Dawson.
Dawson was one of Match Game’s most popular panelists, and the immediate next choice as host of the spin-off, which combined the team format and form of questioning from the original 1960s Match Game with the survey polling used for the 1970s version’s “Audience Match”. We bet you didn’t know all of that!
A Game Show Team Building Program
Family Feud has been renewed through the 2016-17 season, when the show will turn 40 years old. That’s quite a run! It’s also quite an inspiration. Survey Says works well between courses of your company dinner, or as a stand-alone company event.
Much like Family Feud, your team is organized into groups (families) of ﬁve to 10 contestants. You can divide groups by departments, interests, regions, or any way that you’d like. The more diverse your teams, the more entertaining the guesses – and the greater the beneﬁt in terms of bonding.
To keep the event lively and relevant, questions can be unique to your organization or general-knowledge categories. All game show questions are displayed on a projection screen for everyone to see, which creates an experience that is just as educational as it is fun.

Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork. The more collaboration your projects require the more assertive and intentional your communication should be. Every member of the team needs to take the initiative to communicate. When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively in order to work effectively. (more…)
Team building brings people together by encouraging collaboration and teamwork. Fun activities that help people see each other in a different light allow them to connect in a different setting. People on your team are asked to think about the implications of these activities at their workplace.
