Do Corporate Team Building Outings Work?

Friday, July 27th, 2012

There’s one big question on the minds of corporate team managers: Do corporate team building events truly work? The truth of the matter is that it all depends on the team building activity.

If the team-building event does not help co-workers better understand each other and learn to work more effectively together, team building won’t be a successful task. You need your corporate team events to focus on socializing workers informally. A great activity that does this is laser tag.

Laser tag teaches employees to improve communication skills and utilize problem-solving techniques to successfully meet project deadlines. They will also build trust with one another to make the job atmosphere more positive and less stressful.

Never have a corporate team building event that follows one-size-fits all solutions because you won’t be able to target your corporate culture specific issues. Your corporate events should be fun with a continuous focus. In other words, there should be more than one annual event. Your corporate culture should integrate regular team building exercises through out the year.

Laser Tag TeamWork Guide For Kids

Friday, July 6th, 2012

Laser tag is a great game to teach children and teens alike the importance of teamwork. It is great especially for youth groups because youth members can enjoy having fun running around and playing with each other.

 

Let them learn to work together to meet mutual goals and help them understand that teamwork allows the highest chance of winning a match and succeeding at goals.

 

The following are great ways to introduce teamwork:

 

1.   Assign players to pairs. This helps young children and teens learn to support and cover each other through challenges. They will also become more aware of the important of self well-being and the well being of others.

2.   Demonstrate to the youth that a pre-game strategy is key to success. You can do this by pointing out great places for them to hide out and show how they can take roles as leaders based on their abilities.

3.   Read our article Enhancing Team Building Skills in Teens for more great tips.
