Team Building Helps Eliminate Resistance and Fertilize Growth

Team Building Growth

Presented in fun and creative ways, team building exercises challenge your team members to step out of their comfort zones and force them to work together to solve certain tasks.

Resistance among team members – whether a work group, sports team, or any group for that matter – can cripple efficiency and halt productivity. Therefore, it is the duty of any employer or team leader to eliminate resistance and fertilize growth. However, this is often easier said than done. How do you get two or more team members to set aside their personal differences and start working together for the good of the group, team, or business?

The answer: Team Building.

Presented in fun and creative ways, team building exercises challenge your team members to step out of their comfort zones and force them to work together to solve certain tasks.

“The Island” Team Building Challenge

No man is an island and just to prove it, we present to you “The Island,” a team building challenge designed to eliminate resistance among your group and fertilize collaboration and growth.

Physical Activity: Easy-Medium

Equipment: Islands, Planks

Lessons Learned: You have to get your team members from “island” to “island” using only two planks. The hitch? There are more than two islands to get to. You’ve got to take the planks with you and ensure that everyone is moving together cohesively to reach the destination. “The Island” requires a tremendous amount of teamwork and problem solving. How will your team handle this challenge? Will they work together and make it to every island or will they struggle to work as a team? Who will take on leadership roles?
