How Teambuilding Activities Help a Team to Battle and Reach New Understandings

The idea of team building is to have thrilling outdoor retreats or problem-solving camps that will build camaraderie among colleagues. This camaraderie is designed to improve productivity and to know how to overcome hurdles in the office.

Rodeo Bull Hire

Wherever you hold your teambuilding, why not look at exciting rodeo bull hire to liven up your event? Your team will be in stitches watching normally sedate sales managers being tossed around as they summon all their strength to stay on the gyrating bull.

Luckily for anyone who falls off, there is an inflatable mattress surrounding the bull to ensure complete safety. The rodeo bull is perfect for any event and provides highly entertaining amusement for everyone and the rental company sets the whole thing up.

Get your staff to dress up as cowboys and have a competition to see who can stay on the bucking bull the longest. This is a brilliant team building feat as the operator controls the bull throughout the event and can turn the controls for the bull to be wild and frantic or meek and mild - whatever is required.

Go waterfall rappelling

How amazing this team building activity can be, especially exhilarating when done in the hot summer months. You combine hiking, swimming and abseiling skills to navigate rocks, pools and waterfalls as you descend down.

Waterfall rappelling is also known as canyoning and is a massively popular adventure sport that anyone can take part in as the concept is simple. You’re rigged up in a harness and helped down a waterfall by a guide complete with gushing water.

The amount of water and rocky obstacles are factors that will show your grit and determination and how you handle difficulties. Those who have done it say it is more riveting than what you can imagine and will show your colleagues and bosses just how spunky you are.

Communication – it’s the quality that counts

Workplace communication between colleagues and customers always needs to be open, clear and professional. It ensures that everyone is informed of their roles, responsibilities and events. A good business phone system ensures the entire team is clear about any plans being made.

Different offices require different ways of communication and for offices involving team members working remotely, Talkroute ensures everyone keeps in contact about happenings. This virtual phone system allows you to benefit from a feature-rich phone system where you can make and receive calls from any computer or smartphone.

You don’t have to visualize huge expenses with this phone system either as the best part about it is that you don’t need to buy any equipment, but can use your existing cell phones and landline.

Hiking

With team building activities for your sales team, you don’t have to invest in expensive activities that require heavy logistics. There are a great many fantastic team building experiences that can be completed in a day.

Team building hiking trips that last a day are an excellent way to build bonds between your team. Do research as there are mountain and forest walks with superb landscapes that will inspire your team. There is an element of physical challenge with a hike and the whole experience helps team members communicate with each other.

The group discovers who the solo-players are and how people with their individual personalities can be placed in positions that don’t cause them aggravation. Sometimes people have to work on their own and sometimes they have to work as a team to complete a task successfully. The team will patiently move at the pace of the slowest member so that the hike is completed safely as a team.
