Does the thought of a ropes course tie you in knots? Maybe karaoke makes you cringe?
Don’t worry—team-building activities don’t have to be anxiety-producing. In fact, the best games and events reduce workplace stress rather than add to it.
If you’re a small business owner eager to create strong teams, we have you covered with this better-than-ultimate list of team-building activities, divided into four categories.
The broad scope ensures there is something to suit every size and setting: large groups to small, conference rooms to the outdoors, simple to the usual. The key is to realise that one size rarely fits all, given the different ages and interests in a typical company—not to mention budget and time constraints.
If you’re not sure which activities might appeal, the best option is to ask or have your team vote. After all, the goal is to bring the team together, not make them want to run away.
And now, on with the team-building activity list.
