    Default Team Building This Month! Need ideas.

    I head one of our department's teams. This coming March we are going to have a team building in some posh resort. Three days and three nights. All expenses paid by our company, of course. I've been given free hand to do whatever I think is best for my team. I've been planning our schedule, trying to come up with good games and activities, etc.

    Any recommendations, tips and advice on how I can give my team the best stress-free, fun and memorable team building of their lives? I'm also open to all suggestions when it comes to the games and activities? What do you think are good prizes and giveaways?

    We would always play get-to-know-you games. Like a matching game with everyone's name listed and a list of things unique to each person. Some of them were hard to figure out because these were things that a lot of people didn't know.

    I like play the who is the spy game with colleagues. Choose one referee who need to give everyone a word (like desk) except the spy who get a different word (like chair). let nobody know whos word is different with himself's/herself's. Then everyone describe the word he/she got with 1 or 2 simple words(carefully not to reminder the spy) one by one. At the round end, elect a person most people consider him/her is the spy. If the person is the real spy, then game over; if not, this innocent person is out, then start next round(descride the word with no one ever said words). A good referee will make confusion to let game end not too early.
    In this game, team cooperation ability is necessary for innocent people to find out the spy and also for the spy to collude with others to guarantee his/hers safety. Communication Skills, comprehension ability and response speed will get much improved in the meanwhile.

    I asked my team what they want to do and all they said that as long as there's great food, they're happy.

    I'm thinking about buying a HRDQ sets and having it as one of our games. Maybe we can work out everyone's strengths and weakness so we are more productive. What do you think? Do you think it's tacky?

    What about us cooking our own food? At least for one meal. I can ask the resort ahead of time what ingredients they should buy.

    Thumbs up Re: Team Building This Month! Need ideas.

    Hi, Paddlefitness
    I think cooking is a good idea. you can ask your team what food they like, and prepare enough quantity.
    You remind me of a outdoor activity at my college. Our class has been divided into 3 teams of 7 (donnt remember the exact no.) for a cooking competition. I with my teammates bought ingredients(vegetables, meats & fruits) from supermarket. We cooked dinner at a farm, I dont know cook, so I wash ingredients & place plates learning cook skills from teammates. We tasted other team's dishes so did they. Everyone believe them own team cooked best. So no winner at last, but we enjoyed our dinner very much, and loved each other more.
