Some Fun ideas for Team Building
When we are considering professional environment, choosing the right activities may be tricky. For Teambuilding Events Düsseldorf, we have compiled some examples of games and activities that will improve the bond among the team members as well as boost their morale.
Two Truths and a Lie
Total Time: 15-30 minutes
The game starts by writing down two truths and a lie on a piece of paper by every team member. The paper is not to be revealed to anyone. Once its done, there is the time frame of 15 to 20 minutes of open conversation among the team members where they quiz each other on the three questions. The crux of the game is to actually convince others that your lie is a truth and guess each other’s lies and truths.
After the time frame of conversation is completed, gather around in a circle and each member reads out their three facts; on which the group has to guess which one the lie is. This game helps in promoting better communication among the employees in an office, to learn about talking and getting to know your fellow employees better.
Life Highlights Game
Total Time: 30 minutes
This is one of the best icebreaker activities that you can utilize for developing teamwork among groups. Each participant has to close their eyes for a minute and think about the best moments of their lives. This may include a beautiful destination abroad, marriage, kids, anything. After the minute has passed, you have to instruct them on narrowing down their best moments to what 30 seconds of their lives would they want to relive.
The first part of this activity enables participants to reflect back on their lives, while the second part encourages closeness among their partners. Next, the leader of the activity will ask each and every participant about their choice and why they want to do that, so that everyone can know about each other’s choices, their passions, and get an idea of each other’s personalities.
Picture Pieces Game
Total Time: 30 minutes
This activity involves breaking a known picture or a detailed cartoon into equal squares as the number of the participants. Each participant should be given one of the “puzzle pieces” and instructed to create an exact copy of their piece of the puzzle five times bigger than its original size. This way, they are stuck in a problem of not knowing what their work will add to the team and how it will turn out; unless the picture is connected together to create a bigger one. The leader can pass out pencils, markers, paper, and rulers in order to make the process simpler and run more smoothly. When every participant is done with their drawings, they have to collectively assemble the pieces drawn to create a giant copy of the original picture laid out on a table.
This problem-solving activity is excellent for teaching participants the principles and necessity of working in a team and it also shows the idea of ‘departmental’ working, which is the understanding that each person working on their own part contributes to an overall group result.
The Great Egg Drop
Total Time: 2 hours
Now, this team building activity requires a lot more time than the others, but it is as much fun as well. This is a classic yet engaging activity that enhances the problem-solving. capability of the team collectively. The idea is to split the room into two large groups and assign them the task of building an egg package that can bear an 8-foot drop! Now isn’t that interesting? This might be messy, but that all adds up into the fun of this activity.
After the packages have been built, each team must also present a 30-second advert for their package, highlighting why it’s unique and how it works. Of course, at the end of each presentation, the group has to demonstrate the working of their product by dropping their egg package. Aside from teaching the groups to work together and communicate, the idea of winning together bonds the team because of safely dropping the eggs.
