A Different Approach to Team Building
When you mention a team building event to your team, it can often be met with an enthusiastic shrug and unexcited faces – and we can definitely see why. Traditionally, team building means dragging yourself to a dull weekend away that’s filled with long words, people you don’t like and activities that help no one. However, team building experiences have been revitalised in recent years to provide fun and structure for any kind of team. Whether you need to break the ice with a new team or you just want to treat an old one, take a look at team building with a difference.
A big part of team building with a difference is what activity you choose to centre your day around. It’s highly suggested that you pick an experience that no one in your team has done before, as this instantly injects some excitement of the unknown. When it comes to excitement of the unknown, a popular activity to try with your team is the escape rooms team building challenge. Band together in mini teams and try your best to solve the clues and escape a variety of themed rooms. The Funktion Events team tried this down in Chester’s Breakout and really showed their teamwork while still having a great time.
