If you are leading a team of any sorts, whether that is a sports team, your project team, or a small start-up, it is important to build in activities that can strengthen your team’s productivity. Team building activities serve a wide array of functions. They build trust, improve intra-team communication, boost confidence, and help identify different motivations and work styles within the team. But aren’t we all just a little bit sick of conventional team-building activities? Engage your team with the following unique activities that’ll get everyone rushing to sign up!
1. Bring the whole team on a recreational scuba diving tripBring your whole team on a 3 days and 2 nights trip to Batam. Build solid relationship with your colleagues as you marvel at marine creatures and enjoy each other’s company outside of office settings.
2. Singapore food tours for your international team
If submerging in ocean water is not your cup of tea, and if your team happens to have an international makeup, bring them around on food tours around Singapore’s tastiest neighbourhoods. This is a great way to introduce your foreign colleagues to Singapore and local cuisines. Sharing food has been found to be one of the most common things that people bond over. Bridge the cultural gap by introducing shared food and memories between you and your international colleagues.
3. Smash things to vent stress as a team
If you work in really stressful office environments, and team morale appears to be on the decline due to sheer amount of stress, spend half-a-day with your team on expressing your frustrations. At The Fragment Room, you get to break a variety of things, from microwaves, keyboards, to beer bottles. It may seem counterintuitive to build team by breaking things, but what better way to bond by expressing anger together.
4. Going for the Basics- Games
If you are looking for something more traditional, games are always a safe bet. Bring your team on a whole day of outdoors adventure on Sentosa Island, bond over exciting zipline, high ropes course, and rock climbing. If you are looking for something more advanced, try building positive team dynamics in virtual reality. Virtual Room at Chinatown offers team-based virtual reality games.
