Modern offices are incorporating new ways to do business that include recess options from foosball and ping pong to more relaxed workspaces or hot desking. So, in an exciting era where work has merged with recreation to get more done, why continue to have a boring team meeting at the local bowling alley? Time to get creative with your office outings.
Getting Everyone Involved
Teams function best when they share a goal that requires them to work together. Look for outings that also create a challenge that gets the group going toward one goal. Beware the difficulty level because everyone should be able to participate.
When you plan for the office outing, look for organizations that handle all the arrangements and for activities that don’t require advanced knowledge or skills. Everyone should be able to head to the outing and enjoy the activity without memorizing a rule book or taking a class to learn how.
Before you book, ask about the experience required. Good event opportunities will help so that no one has to worry about their ability to join in whether you’re planning a group Segway trip or a deep-sea fishing charter. The participants should just have to arrive and go without worries.
During the long slog of work projects and difficult days at the office, team members look for ways to lighten the load. When they’ve had an exciting work adventure to share, then it’s easier to refer to this fun experience even when the current atmosphere is anything but fun.
The more a team can enjoy their off-site outing, the more they will carry the memory. From an extreme moment like catching a shark to a vivid memory like a brilliant sunset seen from a boat, the whole group will come together at the mention of their shared moment in time and find the resources to overcome or persevere through tough times.
Successful Team Events
When you want to create a successful team building event, look for adventures that unite the group, provide a new experience and develop a powerful memory. There are many opportunities to get off-site, but you want to find the right one.
