There are several reasons as to why companies use team building activities; namely improvement in the flow of communication, productivity and of course the most obvious of them all is the fact that it allows employees to break ice with their fellow colleagues whilst also giving them a refreshing break from work and professional environment.
Team building need not be a chore. Many distinguished establishments now believe that team building is elemental to boost work morale and bonding, but it also gives one the opportunity to share an experience of working collectively to achieve a goal.
At Avalanche Adventure, we offer varied activities for team building in Warwickshire. These are explained briefly below:
Blindfold driving is a sure-fire way to express the true value of team work, collaboration and communication all at once. It is a challenging yet fun activity that requires the participation of a minimum of 4 people and is a true assessment of the level of trust and skill consisting of a driver who is blindfolded using one of Avalanche’s Land Rover Defenders.
Before you begin with Blindfold driving, our qualified instructor will give a quick 10 minute brief, filling you in on the activity which will familiarise you with our Blindfold Driving course which is made out of tyres spread across for team building in Warwickshire.
These tyres act as obstacles while the team tries to drive around it. The member giving out the instructions to the blindfolded driver must try his/her best to navigate the Land Rover Defender to avoid these hurdles while at the same time prevent any time penalties. Worries have to be kept far aside as our instructors will be around all the time at the locations where the tyres are placed , to guide you with the operation of the controls of our Land Rover Defenders.
The driver is seated in the second gear and leaves the Land Rover to drive itself without the accelerator, brake or clutch. The other team member has the responsibility to help the blindfolded driver navigate around the course using clear and direct instructions. We allow every member of the team to practice first and then they will get timed on their last lap. The team with the quickest time wins the race!
Prepare yourself and your team to be surprised out of your wits, while being enthralled and thoroughly entertained by the results of this thrilling activity of team building in Warwickshire. Blindfold Driving is an activity that requires listening skills of the highest quality coupled with smooth and direct verbal communication and coordination skills, not to mention the maintaining of a cool head under pressure.
This activity involves crossing a bridge that is connected from one end to the other over a river. This of course is not as simple as it sounds as it requires steady focus, dedication and sheer will to cross the bridge. Swinging bridge is an amazing activity to top off a day of river rafting. This activity will give your adrenaline an unexpected jolt as you jump off high suspended bridges that are secured by climbing ropes and gear. This rope will be fixed at the centre of the bridge, while the jumper walks towards the end of the bridge pulling the rope tight in the process right before jumping off. This task can be performed by a maximum of 5 people at a given time.
Another interesting activity that is a part of our team building in Warwickshire is Giant Jigsaw. Teams must work as one in order to complete a puzzle as quickly as they possibly can. At first the teams will be divided and given different bags containing the pieces of the puzzle.
This is supposed to give the teams the false impression that they will be competing against each other, but they will soon come to realise that they have absolutely no way of completing the puzzle unless they work together and in sync along with other sub teams as they are very likely to hold the puzzle pieces that are absent.
At Avalanche Adventure, we provide you with the puzzle pieces that are guaranteed to keep all the team members engaged during the exercise. We will conduct this activity in a spacious place which will be large enough to accommodate all the team members while making it easy to view the puzzle which is bound to make solving more fun and easy.
Teams consisting of more than five people will be challenged on their organisational, leadership and team skills while simultaneously ensuring that every team member has a definite role to play within the team as a part of team building in Warwickshire.
Opposite Steer Buggy
