Trying to plan a team building experience for clients is a challenging task. The planner needs to understand what kinds of activities will successfully encourage camaraderie and engagement between attendees, along with building a fun and professional atmosphere. So what activities should a meeting planner consider?
A trend quickly gaining popularity for team building exercises is competitive cooking
. Attendees are split into groups and handed instructions on what to cook. The groups compete to see who finishes their dishes first and then enjoy their own creations. This is a great idea to encourage communication between the attendees.
Another idea to consider for team building exercises is golfing
. Even if the attendees don’t have an entire day to dedicate to the course, consider planning mini-games. These ideas include putting contests, golf simulator contests and short three- to nine-hole tournaments.
