Typical team building activities you can try

There are some activities that are usually part of the team building program provided by most venues. These are proven-and-tested activities that are sure to bring out results among your team.

The first activity that you should expect when you set out to do your company team building is an obstacle course. For this one, the employees will be divided into teams and whichever team finishes the course first is declared as the winner. The obstacle course contains a series of physically challenging obstacles which each member of the team must go through, so not only will your teamwork be tested, but your wits and strategy skills along with your physical strength. Every player must be able to complete the course before the next member is able to start, so the win for each team rests on every member's shoulders. Rope and wall climbing and tire obstacle courses are some of the usual components of an obstacle course.

If you want to establish an emotional connection among the members of your team, you can also ask them to have an ice breaker game that allows them to dig deep into the lives of their officemates by asking personal questions which they must answer.
