WE RUN NUMEROUS TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES HERE
ARE JUST A FEW LISTED BELOW:-
about devoting the entire day to teambuilding, problem solving
and communication oh and of course fun!
Building Events can sometimes be perceived as a lot of analysis
and facilitation! We can work in both the more traditional way
to accommodate you, or if you prefer, a more informal way of discovering
how well you and your peers/colleagues work together. So whether
its communication, leadership, teamwork or just plain fun either
option is our speciality!
about mixing together Lock Zone, Smash & Grab and Divide &
Conquer to get those brains going. I’m pretty sure we could
combine Laser Combat in here somewhere with these activities,
if it sounds too much like work. These tasks will address a number
of areas including leadership, planning, role recognition, time-management
and delegation skills amongst others. The day can be as formal
or informal as required by the group and will be entirely geared
towards your needs.
Taken by boat to a remote Island, can you survive without your
home comforts? The only shelter is what you build, and food that
you catch & cook. Robinson Crusoe survived can you?
Mother Nature as your source, the team will combine their
knowledge to build fires, to cook your rations.
will be given various tasks to complete to lead you to shelter.
Further cryptic clues to solve will test your navigational
skills, as you are guided to parts of the island where team-building
activities await you.
A robbery is linked to the safety of a visiting foreign dignitary.
The only way to secure her safety is to apprehend the robbers!
Can the police find them in time - and keep within budget?
The objective is to locate and surround the suspects. Each "squad"
has its own budget and access, at a price, to underworld informants
and eyewitness accounts. Sooner or later squads realise that all
the necessary information is beyond the limits of their individual
budgets. Time to start talking to other squads. The whole group
needs to agree a way to purchase the right information, to piece
together the movements of the robbers and move to a final arrest
- but competitive instincts invariably hinder progress!
The concept of collaborative teamwork is fundamental to business
success. This activity opens the doors to information sharing,
communication channels, honesty, and united team success. The
resistance of any team to join in this process sparks enormous
discussion and leads to a template for more effective internal
'Cops & Robbers is a great success and never fails to intrigue
The Pyramid Phoenix Game
Pharaohs, Mummies and Egyptians are all involved in of this mind
Ideal as a starter to teamwork, leadership and managing time.
Skill sets identified include problem solving and communication.
Both intellectual and practical teamwork is challenged in this
fun exercise. It demonstrates the importance of planning; understanding
the problem; identifying strengths and weaknesses; quality control
to avoid rework; morals, ethics and creativity.
Montgomery is dead and his safe lies undiscovered! Can his followers
find the loot together - or, as Monty predicted, will they fight
and squabble to the end?
Each team are given a brief, a map, a plan of a disused mine shaft
(where the loot is hidden) and some security codes and locks.
For each question correctly answered teams are rewarded with pieces
equipment desperately needed to get down the mineshaft. The race
is on - until teams realise they do not have all the necessary
resources for getting the treasure. Will individual teams waste
valuable gold, buying on the black market - in an attempt to take
the treasure for themselves - or will they persuade the other
teams that the only way is to work together and share the treasure?
Teams often see themselves as rivals, not allies. Teams succeed
in this lively exercise only if they co-operate with each other,
share information and build a trusting and honest climate. Often
teams will jump into the challenge without discussing the various
strategies required for success. This leads to wasted time, many
mistakes being made - and unclaimed treasure.
Follow The Leader (Leadership Skills Challenge)
An excursion to the beautiful Church Island can be won
and there are points to collect en route. Will your team run away
with the prize?
In this tabletop simulation each team first chooses a leader.
Each leader is given a €300 budget, a map and 15 minutes
to familiarise themselves with the Brief. During this period the
rest of the teams complete questionnaires about leadership qualities
- for discussion later. Essentially teams must collect as many
points as possible by visiting post offices and lighthouses -
and beaches to get buckets of sand! Leaders, with their own, chosen
style of leadership, brief their teams and oversee the activity.
Information on costs, ferry timetables, time and distance, overnight
accommodation etc are available from a computer databank - but
information costs money - and eats into a tight budget! Leaders
must aim for a carefully constructed plan that keeps everyone
on board, fits the constraints and picks up as many points as
Follow The Leader clearly illustrates some important requirements
of good leadership, the need to brief the team well, to coordinate
the strategic planning process, to keep a watchful eye on budgets
and other constraints, to review and to keep good communications
within the team. A challenging exercise which gives leaders and
teams a great opportunity to demonstrate their skills. Ideal for
assessing both leadership styles and team roles.
A treasure chest lies hidden in the Forest. It's all
yours - if you can find it - and the vital key - before anyone
else! Briefs are issued to the competing teams, containing vital
clues to the whereabouts of the four keys. So team members must
realise that they need to share their information. Once the location
of the keys is discovered, teams plan the fastest route to collect
them and so get to the treasure. The Trainer holds vital items
that teams need to locate the treasure and get it back to the
start point. And the quickest team wins!
Treasury Team brings the outdoors indoors with a classic team
challenge. It allows teams to put all their interpersonal and
team skills into action in a fun way, to demonstrate that they
are the top banana! Use at the start of an event to identify weaknesses
or at the end to practise what's been learnt.
of the Fittest
you properly prepared for survival in hostile mountains -
to accomplish a mission? If your morale gauge touches 'zero'
- it's a helicopter rescue!
Ancient and priceless stone must be located on the mountain
map. Working from details on the map, teams must plan a route
to collect the stones. Load has a bearing on travel speed,
but not having the necessary equipment may cause problems
later! Finally, they must put their plans into action. Weather
conditions, via audiotape, can cause delay, and affect morale
- but morale gets a welcome boost for every piece of stone
is a substantial, exciting activity tests organisation, planning
and decision-making skills. It also makes the link between good
preparation and high morale and motivation. Brings out the Indiana
Jones in us all!
