The key to turning your good team building events into a great one is giving up the dirt.
Your facilitator is a professional and can make adjustments during the event as they learn more about your team. But it doesn’t it make sense to give them a head start?
Providing your facilitator with key information about your group can help them better prepare to engage your staff, focus on your goals and make the content of your Team Building events more focused and relevant to your organization.
Before team building events, let your facilitator know:
- If your team has individuals with special needs or physical limitations
- If there will be “important people” attending the event
- Of any new programs that have recently been launched in the organization
- The general personality of the group and length of time they have been together
- The expected excitement level (or lack thereof) you anticipate

“Cooperation is the thorough conviction that nobody can get there unless everybody gets there.” – Virginia Burden
Company culture is becoming a more important aspect of the workplace. Now more than ever, companies are going all out to provide a wonderful experience for their employees. The focus has shifted to making sure they’re happy, engaged and having fun at work. After all, it’s a big factor when choosing where to work. Having fun is key to effectively managing and improving employees’ productivity as it contributes directly to your company culture. It also improves teamwork, builds better trusting relationships and can help increase retention rates.
United we stand. Divided we fall. Some of the strongest bonds are forged in the face of challenge and adversity. War, economic collapse, social protests—these circumstances bring people all different backgrounds, from different walks of life; in ways that they might never have met. However, not all bonds are forged on challenge alone. Sometimes teams find their foundations in activities that combine fitness, competition, and good-humored fun.
Have you made a team building resolution for the New Year?! You should!
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.
When it’s summer time, head outside to enjoy the rays and blue skies. DYI (Do it yourself) outdoor team building is a great way to learn new activities while surrounded by fun company and building strong bonds.
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. (more…)
You’ve probably heard the expression “work smarter not harder”. This witty phrase is supposed to remind us that, especially in office environments, the success of the work we do is not necessarily based one how much time we put in. Instead, success is determined by how well we use this time. By learning to work smarter, we can increase workplace productivity.
