Make Team Building An Event
Team building activities have been known to increase productivity, improve morale, and foster healthy relationships among coworkers that can improve the overall health of the company. It is vital, then, that you find a team building program that gets results. There are a number of camps and retreats that provide your employees with food and shelter while they put them through activities designed to build trust and foster relationships between coworkers. The problem is that these retreats often charge a hefty fee for their services. Team building exercises do not only help coworkers learn more about each other. Team building is to establish mutual respect for effective communication and overall productivity.
Example of Outdoor Team Building Activity
Instead of investing thousands of dollars on a retreat, you might want to consider getting a prize wheel
. Prize wheels are well known for their ability to generate an atmosphere of fun and excitement. They have been successfully used at company meetings and trade show events to generate interest and create buzz. What many do not realize, though, is that these carnival games are the perfect choice for team building exercises, too. Once you have selected a few activities and inserted them into the slots around the prize wheel
, you can get started.
If your company has a parking lot, bring your prize wheel and your employees outside. The best way to start would be to organize your employees into teams. Then, present a challenge that would require everyone on the team to effectively communicate and get along with each other. Many team building experts swear by scavenger hunts. When a team finds everything on the list, they get to spin the wheel to win a prize. Make sure you offer great prizes. A cash bonus or a laptop computer can be a powerful motivator. With a free, downloadable template, it should be simply to customize your prize wheel
. If you create prize cards for each team building activity, employees can spin the wheel to select their next team building exercise. And, then, replace the prize slots with winning prizes for the fastest team-building players to spin when the activity is over.
Example of Team Building Exercise - Indoor
"Back to Back drawing" is a great team building exercise that illustrates the importance of clear communication. For this activity, employees are divided into pairs and sit back to back. One partner will be given a picture filled with geometric shapes and outlines, the other a pencil and paper. Then, the partner with the picture must verbally instruct his partner on how to draw the picture. The person with the pencil and paper may not look at the drawing being described. The team with the best drawing can then spin the wheel and win a prize. You can even use your prize wheel to start a group discussion. It is a great tool to use to improve communication at the workplace. Here are some discussion ideas that can be placed on prize wheels:
- Was it difficult to complete this activity? Why?
- How did you feel when you described the picture? Do you know why you felt this way?
- What were you feeling when you tried to draw the picture based on your partner's description? Why did you feel this way?
- How does this activity illustrate about your ability to communicate clearly with others?
- What steps could you take to be sure that others do not feel this way when they are talking to you?
