Tips In Hosting Unique Corporate Team Building Activities

By Rachael Gutierrez

To those who are hosting corporate team building activities, the first thing that one will have to consider is planning games that will help in various business aspects. For example, the game should incorporate some simple situations at work. Make the entire game fun so that the participants attend to it with more flair.

There should be lots of situations that the person can use for this. Since this is the case, make sure to make a list of the said situations. In the list, do not forget to list the reactions of the attendees during the real situation. With the said list, it is possible to spark a discussion with the participants regarding this matter.

There are times when the person should organize a scavenger hunt. Of course, the items that are already present in the said location should be the ones that the person use in the list for the scavenger hunt. Try to add a twist by forbidding verbal communication. Make them use other forms of communication.

The organization of the group should be considered well. In fact, this is one of the first and most important part of the said event. There are many ways to organize the group. It is a must to organize the group in a way that they least expect it. For example, the person can make use of shoe size information or birthdays to organize the group.

Lunch is an important part of the program too. During lunch, it might be best for the person to assimilate the teams together during lunch time. Forbid them from checking on their phones during lunch time too. If they cannot help but check on their phones, they will need to buy some lunch or snack items for everyone on the table.

Since the person has already prioritized the formation of the said groups, the next thing that must be carried out is the selection of the representative. The selection can be done among the members of the group or pre-selected by the organizers. Make sure that the representative is good enough to lead the group.

Try to organize a thirsty straw game too. This is actually the kind of game that will encourage the person to drink water in a quick speed. Each teams can send in at least four teammates, give them a bottle of water with a stuck straw, and have them drink the entire bottle. The next person may start drinking once the previous person finishes the bottle.

Story writing can also be used in this kind of event. Instead of the plain event where the teams will just have to write their own story, have everyone collaborate on making one. The game should be the kind where everyone will need to contribute one line to the story. The best story created wins.

A telephone game should work during the corporate team building activities too. The team will have to form a line where the first player decides on a mime for a certain word or phrase. The mime actions will be relayed to the second player to the third and so on. The last player will be the one who will guess what the mime action is all about.
