In the words of renowned leadership trainer himself, Dale Carnegie: Team building creates unity and camaraderie amongst individuals and departments, which will help each area work together more effectively and smoothly, also increasing productivity…”

So, what are some of the best team building exercises that can really encourage team spirit and which are – most importantly – fun?  Here are our top three favourites…

Dragon Boat Racing | one of the UK’s most popular team building activities, getting involved in an organised dragon boat race can bring even the most disparate team together in a real show of solidarity.  Not only can individuals of any age or physical ability get involved, but they’re very often held in aid of a charity – so you can have heaps of fun whilst helping those in need J  (Did you know that we’re taking part in the Dragon Boat Challenge at Himley Hall on Sunday 22nd May in aid of Compton Hospice?  Do come and cheer us on if you’re in the area!)

The Great Corporate Cake Off | why not test the cooking skills of your team by embarking on a cookery challenge?   From a brilliant bake-off to a tasty three course dining experience, everyone can enjoy putting their culinary capabilities to the test!

Go Off Road | for those dare devils amongst you, what better way to let off some corporate steam than by a fabulous 4×4 off-roading adventure! Perfect for improving team communication and testing your own driving capabilities in the toughest of terrains.

We’re always looking to further enhance our own employee engagement programme, so do share with us any of your tried and tested team building activities – we’d love to hear them!
