Every company will need team building challenges. When employees don’t do well with their jobs, the entire company suffers. The problem could be due to a number of things, but the most common reason for underperformance is lack of motivation and stress in the workplace. To boost a company’s morale, why not let your employees have outdoor team building activities to refresh each one’s mind and spirit.
People naturally prosper better in groups, and your team will need the drive if it’s short with competitiveness, cooperation and trust. Below are ideas of outdoor games, which may help your team become more proactive at work, which can result to improvements in the workplace:
Rock Climbing: There is really no need to be extremely sporty or super fit just to enjoy this activity. Rock climbing can be both done indoors and outdoors, but it’s best to have a wide open space to make everyone enjoy the activity. For most people, fear is the driving factor that avoids them to pursue their goals more assertively. This activity can help the person deal with his own fears by tackling one that is very common to everyone: fear of heights. The activity will also allow team members to build more trust on each other and the team and they scale the walls with only a rope and your partner for support.
Paint Ball Challenge: These outdoor team building activities may feel like it’s meant for hardcore players, but you will be astonished at how well the game can make the team united. You can divide the teams according to departments for some competition, dress them up with protective gear and provide them with paint ball guns for one messy outdoor fun. Teams will need to find out techniques on how they can outwit everyone in the game. Certainly, communication is also required here, so we need to test it too in this game.
Nature Hunt: It’s a competitive teambuilding game that can be played by teams of 10 members. You need to give them a group of list to find within a specific time limit. The team that is first to bring all items on the list will win the challenge.
You need to challenge yourself and your team to play all these interesting outdoor team building activities, which can make you enjoy and have fun, as your office takes the day off.
