“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organisational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results” – Andrew Carnegie
There are a variety of reasons why companies use team building activities. Effective team building activities improve communication and problem-solving amongst the team. It is also a fun way to unite and motivate people. These activities can be used as icebreakers for people to get to know each other or to help people learn new things about their team members. It is also a great break from the typical work routine – sometimes getting outside and into a completely different environment like the desert can be very positive for a team’s dynamic and overall motivation and worth ethic.
Focus Areas for Activities:
All our team building activities are specially designed by qualified business coaches and our experienced events team to improve:
- Team Confidence
- Problem Solving
- Decision Making
- Building Trust & Rapport
The most important step when planning a team building activity comes at the very beginning: you must start by figuring out what challenges your team faces. Only at that point, with our help can you choose your “exercises”.
We can tailor make your team building activities from a range of more simple corporate fun activities together with team challenges such as the ‘Sand Challenge’, ‘Stepping Stones’, ‘Egg Hunt’ and ‘Blind Pentagon’ just to name a few, to more serious learning and personal development activities designed to address different office related issues such as conflict resolution, leadership and so on.
Popular Team Building Activities:
- Build the Tent Challenge: each participant of the team will have to figure out how to contribute to figuring out how to build a tent.
- The Bonfire Challenge: the participants will be given a set of water bucket, matches, fuel, and wood to create a bonfire.
- Treasure Hunt: an adventurous challenge through the rolling sand dunes in vintage Land Rovers.
All our team building events will give your colleagues the opportunity to not only bond together, but also to experience the rich culture and beautiful natural environment in Dubai.
