Do not call your team building exercise “team building.”

People have preconceived notions about what to expect from team building events and they are not always excited about them. Instead, refer to the activity itself.

Try team building exercise names like:

  • Gladiator Olympics
  • In it to win it!
  • Charity Bike Build
  • Amazing Race Challenge

This will minimize the amount of sighing and eye rolling that you get from the start!

      Hi Elspeth!

      It looks like your organization is involved in broadband, tv and phone? Without knowing much about the activities, here’s a few ideas to consider: TeleTeam __________ Challenge, InstaTeam Bonding Days, The Team Riot Races, Meeting of the Minds.

      If you have more information about the activities and language used around your office, we may be able to help with more ideas. Good luck!
