Add a little adventure to your company teambuilding event. We live in one of the most breathtaking destinations on the planet and the best way to experience the Western Cape is to get out there!
Choosing a teambuilding activity for your company is hard enough without the office nerd getting distressed that the “adventure” challenge is out of his/her comfort zone. Bear in mind that a physical challenge is great for bolstering confidence, forging interpersonal bonds, stimulating effective teamwork and encouraging creative brain-storming.
Step away from the mundane and take on a corporate sense of adventure. An adventure teambuilding experience is not about what you should do, it’s about what you can do! Swop the boardroom for nature, swop your computer for something extra-ordinary while you learn about yourself, your strengths, your limitations, fears & insecurities as well as those of your colleagues!
A note to the nervous naysayers, timid temps and worried workers in your office:
Adventure Teambuilding does NOT necessarily mean a lot of physical activity. You may be slightly out of your comfort zone, but you will never be in a position where you are out of control or in danger. No activity will ever be compulsory. Specialized equipment and experienced guides will ensure you are safe at all times. Some activities involve low elements of physical challenge and some involve trust or initiative challenges or alternative challenges like mental and strategic work. So whilst you doubt the value of dangling on a rope in front of your colleagues – consider that getting out of your comfort zone is a personal sense of accomplishment, as well as a psychological achievement.
So what are the advantages? Take a risk and worry less about failure! Remember just like in any office scenario, business is more likely to fail from lack of teamwork & leadership than lack of technical expertise. So don’t squirm at the thought of an adventure teambuilding event – trust, respect and a little sweat can do wonders for your office (Do you trust the guy holding the rope… the same guy who is in the next cubicle to you?) Teambuilding is a natural result of completing shared tasks and all activities can be adapted to suit the agility of the group. #EnoughSaid #Doit
