We have access to a number of narrow boats all across the UK. They provide a great base for a team away day, during which you’ll get to steer the boat, operate locks and enjoy a relaxed lunch in a canal side pub. Additionally we provide a guide, refreshments and team challenges to keep the team occupied throughout. For more information click here.
For thousands of years, the head of the table has broken bread to signal the commencement of a meal. Celebration, or feasting, is an important practice for high performing teams. Our latest activity explores the similarities between building teams and making bread.
With the popularity of TV shows like ‘The Great British Bake Off’, alongside concerns over additives in commercial loaves, the art of baking bread is back in vogue. The smell of freshly baked bread is captivating and many say the process of kneading therapeutic. Making bread is a simple process but one that requires patience and control.
When Lego meets Art (or team building) it delivers more than you’d expect.
Lego fiend Nathan Sawaya has recreated and exhibited his Lego versions of great works of art around the world; but not always to critical acclaim.
Is it art? Or the result of well funded self-publicity?
Work related stress is a common complaint. The latest figures from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show that the total number of cases of stress in 2011/12 was 428, 000 (40%) out of a total of 1, 073, 000 for all work-related illnesses. Team building exercises can help combat some of the reasons and symptoms of stress in the workplace.
Whilst a little stress can push people to achieve – too much stress can have damaging and far reaching effects not only on the individual suffering but for the company and other team members.
Motivating your team members can make a noticeable difference to their performance and the atmosphere at work. Here are five tips to give your team a boost, so they know you care.
1. Say thank you more often and mean it.
If you thank every team member at least once a day and explain why they have done a good job rather than just saying a token ‘thanks’ this will make their day a whole lot better, empower them and you’ll see productivity increase….
For the ultimate exercise in developing trust, take your team out on the blindfolded 4×4 challenge for an experience that will never be forgotten.
Trust is something that is usually earned rather than gifted and without trust within the workings of a business, communication can become flawed, direction can be lost and ultimately the company can suffer as a result. Our blindfolded 4×4 challenge develops trust amongst colleagues. And it’s a real laugh too!…
The Team Machine is an fun team building event that requires participants to co-operate with other teams to achieve a common goal.
Each team is given a set of building materials to create a moving sculpture. The plans are muddled requiring sharing of data before building can commence. Components must be assembled in just the right way for the individual mechanisms to work. Later the teams must work together to find the correct sequence of mechanisms, so that, once launched each element will trigger the next in a chain reaction building to an explosive finale!
Have a look at The Team Machine in action at a recent Fresh Tracks team building event.
A run through the countryside demonstrated how a group can quickly become a team when faced with an unexpected challenge.
Two ewes and four lambs were out of their field and roaming the woods on a local running route, so we responsibly set about coaxing them back through the gate to the rest of their flock. Only a video could do justice to the comedy value of a group waving, bahhing, heading off sheep and trying to behave like sheepdogs. However, on reflection, we went through the following team development process…
Finding a team building event for a large department can be a challenge. The Activists want to run about while the Reflectors would rather observe. Pragmatists will ask ‘What’s the point of this?’ While Theorists might prefer to study and solve a complex puzzle.
We reckon we’ve developed a format that can please all of the people all of the time. We combine a variety of competitive team challenges to meet each participant’s preferred style, demonstrating that our differences can be the source of our success in a team….
