Our event coordinators have seen it a thousand times.

A group of employees will arrive for an afternoon of team building, dragging their feet and dreading whatever is going to happen next. Imagine looking around the room, and seeing a mix of bored, annoyed, or distracted expressions. Everyone is wondering why they are there, and why they have to spend their valuable time on something like “team building.”

But then… something happens.

The activity starts, and wouldn’t you know it? People are actually having a lot of fun. They’re into the challenges, and motivating each other to participate. They break into laughing fits as they try something new, and cheer as a team when they succeed.

Everyone ends up having so much fun, they don’t even realize that the team building is working.
