Does your team have what it takes?
Transform your office into sleuths and suspects for the ultimate team building experience!
Are you a part of a small startup or a large corporation? If you are a part of the workforce, there’s a good chance that you’ve been involved in a team building game or two. No matter the size of your company, holding effective and fun activities is the key to strengthening employee relationships. Because at the end of the day, collaboration is what makes a business great!
The good news is we have made a list of some of the most engaging games you can show off at your next team building event. And don’t worry, we know the difference between a good game and a game that sucks… you won’t see any hot dog eating contests or egg relays on this list.
Groups of around 4-6 are the best manageable size for this interesting activity. You should instruct these groups to form into circles facing each other. Using a length of rope or long shoe strings, tie peoples’ hands together. Now comes the fun part. You ask them to complete everyday tasks together, all tied up. Examples of this include:
The challenge is obviously working together to achieve these goals while physically constrained. This will force people to think outside of the box and might get a few laughs as a bonus!
Get your group to line up based on different criteria, such as:
To make it a little bit more fun and challenging, you should have everyone communicate this info non-verbally. As the group moves about, signing to each other to get grouped up, you’ll be able to observe their non-verbal abilities. See how fast team members complete the task and take note of who takes on the role of organizers or leaders.
Ever wondered how your team sees the future of your business? Find out when you choose this option from the team building games list! The supplies you will need are art supplies like paper, pens, markers, and scissors. Split your office into teams who will come up with news headlines to cover hypothetical successes the company can have in the future. Tell them to get creative with it and think big! Have the groups share their headline ideas and faux newspaper articles. Take notes, you may end up finding some solid ideas for future goals the office can work towards.
Probably one of the most objectively fun options on the list, a Saturday morning paintballing sesh is a solid team building games choice. Plenty of cities have a paintball venue that will rent out their location and equipment to your office. Just make sure you reserve your spot well in advance. Some places will even offer a business discount. Your group will be split into teams and must work together and come up with a cunning strategy to win!
