Team building ideas
Looking for ideas that actually work?
One of the biggest challenges is to find team building ideas that work with a broad range of people. This is our speciality.
Some people like demanding outdoor physical activities but many do not. Instead, our fun group activities are designed for inside, so mud, wind and rain are not required! We focus on activities related to creative performance, because these proven team builders are also great fun. Please contact us now.
Our critical ingredients
Having worked in the industry for more than 15 years, we have come across many hundreds of team building ideas and have designed and run thousands of group sessions. From our experience, there are a number of critical ingredients that go to make up a compelling activity. They are:
- Inclusion. Everyone should be able to participate equally, regardless of their role in the organisation, culture, fitness level, language or whether they are extroverts or introverts.
- Fun and laughter. People give their best and are most open to working together as a team, and are most receptive to new ideas, when they are enjoying themselves.
- Interactive performance-based tasks. After years of studying and observing many groups, we are more than ever convinced that interactive performance-based activities, such as drumming, Haka and singing, take team building to a higher level.
We focus on all three of these in our sessions to ensure that you get great results while participants thoroughly enjoy themselves and have something to fondly remember.
Team building ideas for the great indoors!
Say goodbye to stressful physical challenges in mud, wind and rain. More often than not, these group challenges create ‘losers’ as well as ‘winners’ and simply do not work. They do not bring groups together and, instead, tend to isolate individuals.
Our most successful team building ideas include:
We have found that that interactive performance-related activities, using rhythm, music, singing and/or movement are extremely effective at building a group. Over years of experience, we have designed a winning formula that starts with a great surprise, keeps everyone entertained and fosters team building on a long-term basis.
How do our performance-related activities build teams? Well, when people learn something totally new, which is outside of their comfort zone or skill set, we are left with who they are as real people. By all learning from scratch together, there is a feeling of unity and a great sense of achievement. Typical organisational barriers and hierarchy just melt away.
We can mix and match our activities for you, so that you could turn your day into a multi-rotational event where participants get a chance to develop a range of skills. Alternatively, we can create a completely bespoke session for you. Contact us for lots more team building ideas for you.
