Effective Team Building Activities

Goals

Determine team building activities that promote out-of-the-box thinking. The information will be used to plan activities for a team building workshop.

Early Findings

ALL THE NEWS

  • The "All the News" team building activity promotes teamwork and aims to get teams to creatively ponder about the future of the company and its vision.
  • The time allotment is one hour and only paper and pens are needed.
  • Participants will be divided into three or four groups. Groupings can be by department or sub-team.
  • Each team will draft a "mock newspaper article" that shows what their business unit or the whole company will achieve in the future.
  • After the specified time is up, each group will present their finished work.

A SHRINKING VESSEL

  • The activity may seem simple but it is considered as an effective method to foster teamwork and develop problem-solving abilities.
  • The objective of the game is to get the group to think of ways to occupy a designated area that continues to shrink as the game progresses.
  • The area boundaries can be marked by tape, a rope, or other similar materials.
