Team Building with The Event Firm Inc.

Doing the job you have been hired to do is a natural given , but to bond, have fun and find common interest with the people you spend over half of your day with may not come as easy. That’s why team building is crucial! Not only is it important for each party to have a better understanding of their co worker but it forces you to get out of a natural work environment where conversation may be forced and personalities are hard to decipher. Plus, its an awesome way to be social, network and learn a bit more of those people you are with on a regular basis. Get out and have fun as a team!

Here are the top 5 team building ideas from our friends over at The Event Firm Inc:

1.Team Physical Activities!

Corporate Team Building Kitchener WaterlooGetting out with your team and doing something completely fun, physical and different is part of the plan! Rock climbing, throwing axes, tubing, skiing (subject to seasons) hiking, swimming, biking are all activities that can create a natural and friendly competition between you and your co workers.

2. Get Your Team Thinking

Get Your Team Thinking - Problem Solving Team Building ActivitiesAs an employee you may have to solve or fix issues on your own but have you ever had to do it as part of a team? If you did, did you have fun or enjoy doing it? Team building activities can be as simple as problem solving! Working together as a team is a positive way to get everyone on the same page.  By doing puzzles, figuring out riddles and working together as a team,  the end goal teaches how to  communicate and complete tasks while in distracting and stressful situations encouraging you and your team to think quick and make fast decisions!

Here are some links to some great facilities that encourage team thinking!
