Many of us are no strangers to company team building sessions. Our bosses have us pile into a room, where we are confined for hours on end and subjected to a litany of exercises, tests, and sharing with co-workers we barely know. This situation is uncomfortable enough to make us want to call in sick the next time team building training is scheduled. Unfortunate, since companies spend thousands of dollars on these developmental efforts.
Sometimes it’s too much for you as a parent to handle all the running about for your children’s activities. I’m fortunate in that two of my daughter’s activities are right after school, and it’s a five minute walk back home, so those Team Bonding Singapore have little impact on me. Having to drive her to her art class one night a week and her brother to soccer practice once or twice a week plus a game on Saturdays, isn’t so bad.
Objects Team building activities are put in random places in an outdoor or indoor setting. Objects such as bowling pins, balls, bags and even furniture in an indoor setting, act as mines. The person has to guide his/her blindfolded partner so they can avoid mines and reach the other end of the ‘field’ safely.
The Queen’s Staircase is the tower that could give you the best sights that the island could offer. The good thing with this activity is that you don’t get taken instantly to the top. You will in fact walk. With its peak being the highest point in the island, you will need a lot of water on your bag or else get tired easily. A comfortable shoe could also help in getting there!
With this in mind, hens that love shopping might enjoy a complete makeover with a professional fashion consultant and makeup artist. Her girlfriends will undoubtedly love such an experience as well. Think about it, it will be one last opportunity to shop until she drops as a single woman. One day before she will be required to consult with her husband regarding expenses.
If it’s difficult to track down good, free options of the first two types, meeting ice breakers is quite the reverse. Searching for that term will give you a huge range of mostly really good ideas. As mentioned above, you can add to these some of the shorter activities you may have found as well and you will have enough to last you a lifetime of team sessions!
For the best results, make sure you mix up the teams when doing these team building activities. There are always small groups of people who tend to hang out during breaks at work, so make sure that they are split up when possible, to encourage the forming of new bonds with people they might not know as well.
If each team member can learn how each other member thinks and works in a variety of work situations as a result of an away day, then a lot has been achieved. This kind of information is invaluable to any company. This is the basis of team building; the team understanding itself and going on to higher and greater things. Team building activities that can do that are worth their weight in gold!
