Five Quick and Easy Teamwork Exercises

by

Your employees should participate in team building exercises on a regular basis. Team building exercises allow your employees to learn more about each other. They also help employees loosen up and engage each other. Team building exercises do not have to take up a-lot of time. Below are five quick and easy teamwork exercises for employees:

Two Truths and a Lie

This is an activity that is great to do before a meeting. All your employees have to do is say three things about themselves. One of the things has to be a lie. Everyone will have to guess which one is a lie. This is a simple team building exercise that can be completed in less than five minutes.

Your Worst or First Job Experience

This is another game that your employees may want to play before a meeting. Everyone will need to give a brief description of their worst or first job experience. In order to save time, ask your employees to prepare their story before the meeting.

Paper Tearing

Divide everyone into small group, and tell everyone to close their eyes. Give them instructions on how to tear their paper. While you are giving instructions, you will need to tear the paper also. After you have finished giving them instructions, tell everyone to open their eyes. The team whose paper looks the closest to yours should be given a prize.

Brainstorming Session

Your employees are probably filled with great ideas that can help improve the company. Give your employees a chance to share their ideas during a brainstorming session. You should divide everyone into groups and give each group three to five minutes to come up with ideas. After the three to five minutes is up, give everyone a chance to share their ideas.

Show And Tell

This activity may seem like a flashback to elementary school, but it can also be a fun way for your employees to learn more about each other. You should have your employees bring some interesting from home and let them share why it is important to them. Interesting articles, family photos and vacation souvenirs are examples of some of the things that your employees can bring. You may also want to bring your own item. It only takes a few minutes to complete this activity.
