Tick tock, tick tock – Tips for Quick Team building Activities
Whether 15 minutes or an hour, your team building activity must be quick – to fit into the working routine or around a pressing conference schedule. So, just how do you make every second matter when you’re on a tight time limit?
With time not on your side, we’d better get to work with four fast fire tips for quick team building activities…
Customise A Proven Format to Be Super Quick
Tried, tested and trusted businesses in our industry should have a long line up of team building events that can be transformed with success and certainty into a simpler, shorter version.
A few examples of events that we’ve cut down and customised for quick team building activities include: Team Animation, Team Apprentice, Company Bake Off!, Ice Cream Making, Cupcake Creations! And Junk Funk.
Create A Blow by Blow, Minute by Minute Countdown
Make it clear to your delegates – this is a quick, concise team event. Tell them what’s going to happen, when and place one of your most effective time managers in charge of making sure every minute of the itinerary is kept on track – from the introduction and explanation of the task, to the group work, to the presentations and wrap up.
Create A ‘Back to The Office’ Action Plan
A good team building event doesn’t end when a whistle is blown or the last group presents. Instead, it should form a part of everyday working life – leading to improvements, efficiencies and changes that mean your team work better together tomorrow, than they did yesterday. Key to ensuring this happens is an action plan. Ask yourself – how will you continue the development of your team members come Monday morning?
These action plans are always a must-have for making the most of your investment, but they perhaps become all the more important when it comes to quick team building activities.
Be Clear on Roles and Responsibilities – For the Entire Day, Not Just the Team building
Planning a conference, family fun day or end of year event? If so, everything needs to be kept stringently on track, not only the quick team building activity, but all that comes before and after it.
