There can be many instances where team cohesion isn’t quite as it should be.  Changes of personnel, company restructures and internal promotions can all have a negative effect on how a team works together.

Taking time out to attend a team building event will help to reunite the team, forge new and closer working relationships and restore trust in one another.

Which team building events are best for team cohesion?   We think that team building events that require everyone to come together to achieve the end goal are best for team cohesion.

Assigning roles within problem solving team building events such as treasure hunts, or all working together on a creative task such as Catwalk Challenge or The Big Picture all help to really focus the team and allow vital skills such as communication, trust, listening and leadership to come into play.

Creative team building events usually have delegates doing something completely different and unique to their everyday work.  This often means that people can showcase skills that wouldn’t normally come to the fore in their usual roles.  Allowing different people to take the lead on a project and be responsible for areas that they wouldn’t usually be involved in, such as decision making or time management, lets the rest of the team see how they can be more involved and engaging when back in the workplace.

Problem solving team building events utilise every member of team, so no-one can sit back idle.  This hands-on effect helps helps to restore confidence in each other and therefore strengthen bonds and bringing back that team cohesion.

Using problem solving games for team building events is a great way for individuals to come together as a team and hone vital workplace skills.   To achieve the goals set in the problem solving games the team must make sure they use their communication, leadership, listening, decision making and time management skills to the best of their ability.

Here are some of our favourite problem solving games:
