Team building activities 2017
On the 1st of July 2017 our company decided to arrange team building activities giving a fresh air to the routine we have to deal with every day at work and our personal life. Even the best team ever requires some distraction from a beaten path of day-to-day reality. It is proven that such way of active relaxation improves morale, motivation, productivity of co-workers, helping them to get know each other better and learning about one’s strengths and weaknesses. Moreover exercises we were involved in gave us valuable experience enhancing our communication, teamwork and problem solving skills.
Challenges are everywhere and will always pop up in future throughout our lives, so such gaming simulation helps fighting with stress and fears. The best idea of these exercises is that it requires only people as team players, few ropes, some food and cold drinks for energy recharging and a fun mood brought along with a cheerful smile.
All our staff was divided into 4 teams, each one was leaded by a special instructor describing the rules and objective of each exercise. One of the tasks was to go through a horizontally stretched spider web made of simple ropes without touching it by your legs. One of the conditions was to hold each other hands by making it as a chain consisting of 10 men and women from the beginning till the end of the task. It may sound simple, but our team did not consist of physically trained acrobats, so every link of the living chain had to help the team member in front of him and behind him, not only passing the web himself.
There were a lot of other challenges connected with fear overcoming and team work. But the milestone of the event was a light version of bungee jumping from 6 meters height tree. But the easiest and long-awaited task was to eat a well-served dinner consisting of grilled meat and vegetables along with an ice cold beer.
