Fun, Quick & Easy Corporate Team Building Games

by

If you are looking for a way to get more out of your employees, then you should consider allowing them to participate in corporate team building games. Team building games are effective because they help your employees become more comfortable with working with each other. They also teach important skills, such as patience and perseverance. There are several team building games that your employees will enjoy. Below are some of those activities.

Chocolate Making

This is an event that allows your employees to show off their creative side. Anyone can participate in chocolate making, and it can also be performed indoors. Cocoa powder, icing, chocolate melting pans, piping bags and hard and soft centers are the materials that are needed for this game. Your employees will need to be divided into teams.

You will need to give each team a certain amount of time to complete this task. The chocolate should be judged based on taste, presentation and style. The winning teams should be given awards. People will learn the importance of staying on one accord when they are working together by participating in chocolate making.

Show and Tell

You may be thinking, “This is a children’s activity.” However, show and tell is a great team building activity because it is low pressure, fun and allows people to learn more about each other. You should ask your employees to bring in an item that reflects themselves. This can be something like a family photo, recipe or an article.

Show and tell is an activity that can be done at the beginning of a meeting. If you want to include this activity in your meeting, then you should set aside 10 minutes so that everyone can show and explain what they brought.

Back to Back Drawing

This is an activity that needs to be done in pairs. Each pair will need to sit on the floor back to back. You will need to give one person in the team a picture of the shape, and the other person will need to be given a piece of paper and a pencil. The person who has the shape will need to give the person who has the pencil and paper verbal instructions on how to draw the shape. The person is not allowed to tell the drawer what the shape is.

After the person has finished drawing the shape, you should consider asking some questions. How well did the person with the shape give instruction? How will did the drawer interpret the instructions? What problems did both people encounter when they were sending and receiving the messages? Those are just a few of the questions that you should consider asking. Back to back drawing is a team building game because it illustrates the importance of great communication.
