Finally, the sun is shining and the birds are singing; the days are longer and everyone around the office is feeling happier…right? Hopefully this is the case in your team, but of course everybody is different. Different things motivate different people, and this may mean that not everybody responds to the change in season in the same way.
Some people may miss winter and be looking ahead to the summer months with fear or trepidation, while others may already be looking ahead to their holidays and time away from the daily routine. So what can you do about this?
Well, it just so happens that this is a great time of year to bring your team together and take them away for a team building activity. Not only will this provide a change of scenery and tempo for your workers, but also hopefully help them to acquire new skills and knowledge that can be applied upon their return to the workplace.
One company that specialises in team building activities is Team Building Solutions (TBS). TBS have a wide range of experience and expertise in providing the right solution for you and your team, no matter what sector or industry you operate in, or how big or small your team is.
In fact, right now is the perfect time to organise that trip with TBS, especially as the flowers are blooming and the sun is in the air once again. TBS have an array of team building activities to suit you, and are happy to speak with you by phone, via email or in person to discuss your options in more detail and find out what activity will best suit your organisation.
One fantastic project currently available is called Reach for the Stars, which gives your team the opportunity to become rocket scientists! The premise of the project is simple; each team has the chance to make their own rocket and compete against each other, being scored on a number of different criteria.
One potential criterion could be how far the rocket goes, either in terms of distance in the air, or amount of time spent airborne. Another way in which the prize can be awarded is based on the aesthetic quality of the rocket itself. Finally, the teams could compete to make a short advert about their rockets, or indeed a combination of all of these three criteria could determine the eventual winner!
Reach for the Stars is just one of the activities you can arrange for your employees with Team Building Solutions, they also offer a wide range of other activities, both indoor and outdoor. So even if the weather takes a turn for the worse, you don’t have to miss out on a great opportunity to encourage collaboration and growth within your team this summer!
