Whether you’re running a sports team, casting a smash-hit play or film, or looking to build a winning company, there are few things more important to continued success than team building activities. The best sports teams spend months training together, running drills and practice games, until they are so well-practiced and in sync that they can beat the competition in their sleep. Casting a great show takes more than mere talent—it takes chemistry, and that means running lines, trust exercises, and so much more to get the electric reaction between cast members which makes for a hit.
So, when it comes to building a great company, nothing builds trust faster or in a more fun and enjoyable way than with team building games and sports. They are recreational activities that not only help employees learn to work together and have a good time doing so, but build trust. What’s more, it helps your employees see you as both a boss and still an approachable, fun-loving person. Here are just a few of the best things team building activities in Auckland have to offer.
Snow Games and Sports
Having fun in the snow is a great way to get to know someone. If you live somewhere like Auckland, where snow is readily available, snow games and sports can thus make for brilliant team building activities. There are a variety of different snow games and sports which can be used in this method, depending on the place you visit, the equipment you wish to rent, and of course the focus you wish the team building activities to have. Among the most popular games and sports, of course, are those which require a team effort, so be sure to look to see if the resort in which you are planning to hold these team building activities has the necessary resources, and always be sure to call and make reservations ahead of time.
Races are, by far, some of the most popular team building exercises. The rules are typically easy to understand, as are the objectives, and so the focus becomes more about the actual process of achieving victory with one’s teammates. While skiing is incredibly popular in this regard, and offered in many different resorts, for those looking for something a bit different and potentially more affordable, tube races could provide a refreshing alternative. Tubing is fast, fun, affordable, and when made into a relay race can teach employees the value of teamwork.
Eat Together, Win Together
The team that eats together wins together. As such, in between races and games you’ll want to treat your employees to some scrumptious meals, served up in the warm comfort of an indoor on-site restaurant or café. These meals provide valuable nourishment, taste great, and are another great opportunity for your employees to grow closer together and develop the kind of team spirit which is necessary to win the race on the snow slopes, and in the business world alike.
Build teamwork the enjoyable way with great team building exercises, games, and meals.
