Team Building Events
Our scavenger hunts are an excellent team building event for your group.
In our years of experience serving the corporate market, we have found that there are more than one type of team building scavenger hunts, and we generalize them into one of two categories:
1) One kind of team building exercises is an experience that can be used as for fun and relationship-building. This is a shared adventure that creates a "buzz" upon return to the office. It is something that bonds people together and creates stronger friendships and inter-personal relationships, helping participants better communicate and work as a team upon return to the office.
2) Another type of team building scavenger hunts is the kind used as an experiential learning program. In addition to the benefits described above, your scavenger hunt can be a developmental experience in which participants learn how to work more effectively together. The client usually has specific objectives, such as improving communication, strategic planning, or thinking outside the box. A connection is made between the scavenger hunt and the workplace by means of a facilitated debrief discussion.
Our clients always enjoy their "type 1" because we ensure that we understand our audience. We like to know your group's level of competitiveness, their demographic, the degree to which they work together on a daily basis and their openness to having fun together. Based on this information, we may make subtle changes to our content and the way we run your scavenger hunt. This ensures that your group will have the best possible adventure together.
Our clients benefit from their "type 2" because we spend extra time understanding their objectives. Our corporate training background gives us insight into the challenges and problems that corporate groups face as they increasingly must rely on each other to get the job done. Based on what you hope to get out of the session, we customize parts of the hunt so that participants will be looking for examples of actions that exemplify the desired workplace skills or actions, for example, prioritization. After the hunt, participants share these examples with the entire group with the help of a skilled facilitator. The facilitator also helps the group identify ways to work more effectively upon return to the workplace. Some examples of business skills that are used in our scavenger hunts and that can be the subject of a debriefing include: communication, leadership, teamwork, collaboration, strategy, planning, prioritization, creativity, problem-solving and decision-making.
Our extensive background in working with corporate groups of all types gives us the unique ability to provide a session that is fun, active, stimulating and most importantly, beneficial to your group and your company.
