Team Building Activities for your Next Meeting or Event

The psychology behind team building activities links social engagement with motivation levels and job satisfaction. Some employees may see team building as something that is outside of their responsibilities. Encouraging employees to move away from the daily grind is one way to host a productive meeting but there are more benefits.

Proven benefits of team building activities include:

  • Creates a sense of belonging
  • Cross-department collaboration
  • Builds effective working relationships

Now let’s figure out how you can integrate this into your overall plan to build an exceptional team.

Team Building Example

Here’s a quick example of a team building activity based on our Dublin Walking Tour podcast. Local historian and Newstalk contributor Donal Fallon narrates this audio tour which guides you through the historic landmarks and events that marked the city.

Set your groups the challenge of following the audio walking tour  around Dublin city. Then task them with answering the quiz below and racing back to the starting point. Why not offer a small prize to add an element of competition and fun.
