When most people think of team building exercises, “dynamic” and “exciting” aren’t usually the first words that come to mind. In fact, ask enough people who have worked on teams of some sort, and you’re bound to come up with a horror story or two.
The worst activities force workers to violate each other’s boundaries. Some may even have the opposite of their intended effect because some might not be able to participate. That leaves one question: how do you choose good company team building activities?
Often, the best company team building activities are those that remove people from the work environment. This helps to put everybody on a level playing field where they can work together and grow. Good activities also offer something unique, which helps to make the day as well as the lessons learned far more memorable. Adding an element of fun with bubble soccer or laser clay shooting gives workers a chance to try something new. At the same time, they’re working together and cheering each other on, enjoying encouragement.
In the search for the right activity, there are likely to be many options. However, just one small rule can help guide you to the perfect choice. Company team building activities should be fun. Consider the people participating and think about what they might enjoy. We provide plenty of options at East Coast Xperiences, and with so much to choose from you really can create a dynamic and exciting team building experience.
