News: Teambuilding In The Summer – Final Call!
1 Mar 2011
It's ten o'clock in the morning. You've got 60 minutes. You and your team must work together to get across an electric fence. Each and every minute counts. It's an example of the kind of outdoor teambuilding activities offered by Sundial Teamscapes.
The teambuilding solutions specialist from the award-winning Sundial Group is encouraging firms to make the most of what promises to be an Indian summer and take part in outdoor teambuilding activities before the Autumn gets well and truly underway.
Lucy McGibbon, Learning and Development Director at Sundial Learning, which specialises in teamwork training and personal development, said, "While the weather hasn't exactly been tropical, it's warm enough and usually dry enough to allow participants to work on their teambuilding in the great outdoors. Simple and straightforward activities they may be but they have a fantastic impact on morale and leadership skills. Of course, these teambuilding activities also significantly improve organisational productivity and help to identify weaknesses and strengths within the team, which will only have a positive impact on the future health and well-being of that firm and its workers. Doing it outdoors adds an extra fun dimension to the experience!"
Another example of a fun and engaging teamwork activity is The Sword In The Stone - and it's exactly as it sounds! A sword's held in a block of stone - sealed with twelve 'spells' and a rod. Only six of the 'spells' are real and the rod needs a combination number in order to be removed. The team has an hour to search the grounds to find clues, which will reveal which of the six 'spells' are needed and to find the appropriate combination for the rod.
The firm also offers a range of indoor teambuilding experiences, more information of which can be found on its' website: http://www.sundialteamscapes.com.
