If you have ever been on a team builder event for work then you’ll know they can traditionally be tedious, dull and hardly inspire you to greater things.
Fall/Winter activities : Skiing, snow-boarding, snowshoeing, and skating all made the top pick for winter youth activities. Also, although it’s winter, there are a variety of indoor Team Bonding Singapore offered as well throughout different community resources. Check out some of these indoor sports, if snow is not your thing: floor hockey, indoor volleyball, basketball, and a wide variety of indoor aquatic programs. Check out your local community resource centers, such as YMCA for program details.
Do not use exercises that are very general in nature and could very well apply to any team. Your team building activities should be geared directly towards your team. This means that you need to know what you expect from them and angle exercises so that it gives them an opportunity to work together to discover how they might achieve that. The more specific that you are able to be, the more successful your team will then be as well.
Gym based activities: Games and activities done in gyms or large open spaces are also free. These are much like the outdoor games, but is indoor based. If you do not have a gym facility available many schools will happily open their doors for a Team building activities building course.
Every exercise should have a purpose that is obvious to everyone involved. If it isn’t clear what the point is then perhaps that activity just isn’t the right one. Team building is about becoming bigger and stronger as a functioning unit. If that is not happening then you need to re-evaluate the exercises that you are choosing. Do not hesitate to take suggestions from your team in regards to team building. After all, it is about working together.
