3 Very Popular & Easy Ice Breaker Ideas for Team Building

As in any teambuilding programme, to start off the day’s event, we would usually start it off with some ice breaker activities. If an organization has company employees of more than 20 for example, you would expect the employees tend to click together with those from the same department. We need to break down that barrier.

To start off a teambuilding activity for company employees, we first need to get the staff members to mingle among themselves. We can easily do this by dividing the meeting participants into groups of 4-5 persons. We just number them off eg. First person is 1, second person is 2, third person is 1, fourth person is 2 and it goes on.

7 Things in Common

So we tell the newly formed group that in each group, they need to find 7 things that they have in common. Nothing to do with the things that they wear or what that they do at work etc. This will help the group members to discover their shared interests more broadly. One person in the group must take notes and to read out the list to the whole group when they are done.

Another member in the group will read out their whole list of things that they have in common first. Then each group will share their whole list with the whole group. Usually as the person is reading it out, you will hear of laughter from the group, and discussion among the members. This ice breaker takes only 1-15 minutes to do, of course depending on the group size. To keep the activity short, you could only allow about 7 minutes for brainstorming or discussion and the rest to read it out.

Speed Dating? Speed Meeting?

Here is another idea. Ever heard of Speed Dating? You can use the same concept for your team groups but here we call it Speed meeting. Divide them into 2 by 2. Then give them each about 5 minutes to mention their names and perhaps what they are going to do once the teambuilding outing ends or perhaps their 5 favourite food and why and once the bell rings, they have to move on to the next person. This speed meeting will make them move around the room, and generate laughter from the crowd as they move on from 1 participant to another.

Year of the Coin

Each person tosses a coin and then tell the members what they were doing in that year. It can be something memorable or something insignificant. This ice breaker encourages people to open up and talk, hence get to know one another better.

Above are 3 very easy to do team building ideas for you to implement into your Teambuilding programme.

Is Extreme Teambuilding for everyone?

There are many extreme sports activities out there. If your management team is one of those who love extreme sports, then they would think that organising extreme teambuilding activities is the way to go for the company employees. Is this right for everyone?

Let us first examine what is extreme building. It is defined as activities that people do as a group or competing against another group from the company. These activities usually require a high level of inherent danger and it often involves  speed, height, a high level of physical exertion, and highly specialized gear. Extreme sports activities are not for the faint hearted and definitely not suitable for everyone.

Some examples of extreme teambuilding activities are team skydiving, white water rafting at Sg. Padas Sabah, Mt Kinabalu climbing or rock climbing and even bungee jumping. Some companies believe that doing these activities would boost employee morale, make them think out of a box, boost their morale, foster a spirit of cooperation and creativity amongst team members.

So the question now is, “Is Extreme Teambuilding Highly Recommended for companies to organise for their employees? “

Most team building activities focus on developing critical skills, like solving problems, make real time decision, delegate tasks and communications skills. Some focuses on your mental ability to decipher a problem. The outdoor activities or outdoor survival skills would send participants through mountains, or forests with very minimal supplies, eg. No sleeping bags, no stoves, tents and you are required to survive on these very basic skills in the jungle, forests or mountains. You will then have to think on your feet on survival skills, how to work together with your team mates to delegate the tasks of looking for woods to make fire, who is to go catch the fishes or find water and etc. Some outdoor adventure programme requires you to engage in high speed boat ride, zip lining, hiking and so much more.

Team members may be required to organise a high tech treasure hunt called Geoquest where team members work together to find hidden targets. A team of 4-5 people will be given a handheld GPS units and by using this gadget, they are required to find hidden treasures. The GPS units would guide them within that specific area but it wont pinpoint the exact location. Then you are required to use clues given to you to find the hidden answer. So here, you would have to use your wits to find the answer. Teambuilding work is important here to quickly solve the clue and be the winner.

For the more adventurous, extreme team building exercises are designed to build team spirit or put decision-making skills into practice by placing participants into physically demanding situations. While treasure hunts, hiking, and sailing are relatively safe, team parasailing seems to move closer to the danger zone.

Sound like fun teambuilding exercises? Not to everyone though we wish to add here that if your company services or products are sports related, then maybe you may consider extreme teambuilding activities though if your company employees are elderly folks, then it is definitely not recommended for them.

5 Tips to having a Budget Team Building

Some team buildings are expensive to come by. People like to combine fun and leisure in their team building, so the perfect location is needed.
There are some ways for you to hold a team building event without spending too much money. All you need to have is a space for mingling and play games.

1. Cut off frivolous activities
Activities that have little to do with team building should be removed from the list. Even though they are fun to do, the activities might not be important enough to strengthen your work relationship among employees. Paintball is one of them. There are other cheaper and more efficient activities that you can do instead of renting a paintball park.

Scavenger Hunt across the city

2. Do some activities near to your hotel
There are various activities that you can do near to your hotel. If the hotel that you are staying is in the city, then it is a good idea to have scavenger hunt. For example, provide each team with some money in case there is something that needed to be purchased in the list. Even better, ask them to find something that does not require money, instead maybe a square shaped rock, or even certain type of leaf that you find on the pavement.

3. Explore more cost effective venues
It is a good idea to rent community centres, universities or campsite for your team building. It is cheaper that way. Campsite sounds more interesting, and it will be fun staying there and have your team building activities in the midst of nature.

4. Combine team building event with another activity
Team building is another excuse for you to go exploring other state and country. For example, by having a team building in Mulu National Park, you can explore the most amazing caves in Malaysia. Furthermore, by planning an overnight trip to Miri, you can tour the oil resort city and shop for souvenirs there.

Are you looking forward to have a team building event in the near future? How about staying in a nice cottage at Permai Rainforest Resort surrounded by trees, and the beach is only a stone’s throw away?

5 Fun and Effective Team Building Games

There are tons of activities to improve team work but not all of them are fun enough to keep the members entertained. You do not want only some people take part in the activity while the others just keep staring at others with bored faces.

Here are some activities that will ensure you to have fun with your colleagues, at the same time building connections among team members.

1.    Egg Drop Soup

This game is played by teams of two for each group. Each team is given a water balloon and they have to line up across from each other. The water balloon is passed back and forth for three times. After they finished doing that, one side needs to take a step back and proceed with passing the water balloon for three times again. Repeat this step again until they have a final winner which manages the balloon tossing without bursting them.

There will always be small accident happening, eg. people dropping the balloons even before the game started, so you need to prepare extra water balloons. You can also use eggs if you are daring enough.

2.    Land Mines

This is an outdoor activity, usually done at a field. You need to set up water balloons or cups filled with water. Each team member will be blindfolded except for one member. The person without the blindfold will direct his/her team to the right direction, so that they will not step on the balloons. The team that had walked across the mine field without bursting the balloons and the quickest is the winner.

In this game, team member need to trust the “eye” and to listen to the directions carefully.

3.    Blindfold Soccer

In pairs, each group is given a soccer ball. One of them is blindfolded and the other needs to guide their teammate to dribble or kick the ball. The guide can use verbal actions and he/she can hold the blindfolded person’s hand to guide them to the goal.

Building trust is important in this game. The blindfolded person needs to trust his/her partner in order to complete the mission.

4.    Hunt the Leader

The game is actually a manhunt game. The participants need to find a list of people. They can be your colleagues, your team leader or anyone. However, it can be hard to find them as they will be in disguise. Participants need to get the targets’ signatures and the fastest of them wins.

This game is fun to play at a crowded place, such as shopping mall or park so that it will be much more difficult to catch the target. Participants can be split up into groups so that they can spot the targets much easier.

5.    Tug of War

Even though this sounded old-fashioned, you can invent other games from tug-of-war. For example, there is a multi-directional tug-of-war that you can often watch in Korean variety shows such as Running Man. It does not matter how many members are there in each team, as long as they all have the same number of people. If there are 5 teams, 5 ropes are knotted together and each team members will take each rope ends with the last person which is the person at the end of the rope being tied to the rope. The last memberhas to try his best to grab the flag planted on the ground. The team that managed to grab their own flag wins.

It depends on how many teams are there. If there are about 20 teams, you need to break them into four groups and even turn the game into a competition.

These are just some activities to liven things up at a team building event, so the activities are not restricted to indoor activities only. Besides having fun, the participants can know each other better and that will build trust among them.

5 Reasons to Organize a Team Building Event

Team building is essential for big or small organization to improve teamwork between members. It is also important to show your team member your capabilities in leadership. Here are the top five reasons why you should organize a team building event.

1.             Encourage team member to contribute creative ideas

Doing something out of the norm may instigate some brilliant ideas. Brainstorming with your team members while sitting on a picnic table, surrounded by nature is better than sitting in front of your computer staring into nothing, but somehow tried really hard to find ideas. In team building activities, a new challenge is likely to be given to the members, so when they are surrounded by the calm environment, they might get some fresh ideas.

2.             Create connections and improve communications

Team buildings are done in groups. Although some activities do not require them to have physical activities, teamwork is required for all routine. They will build trust and respect towards their team members and that will lead them build stronger connections and in so doing, improve their communications with each other.

3.             Enjoy yourself

Team building is basically playing outside with your colleagues in the perfect environment. You can laugh freely at each other without getting weird looks from your colleagues. You can also playfully correct each other’s mistake if there is any.

4.             Encourage problem solving

There will always be some problems that need solving, given by the facilitator to all participants. It can be building a raft from scratch, or maybe a simple one like trying to remember everyone’s birthday. Each problem has its own solution. It is up to the members how they come up with the answer.

5.             Positive effects of team building towards employee

A successful team building can be seen by the quality their work when they are back in business. Each activity in team building is given deadlines. Team members need to find solution in the time frame provided. This can be implemented in their work back in the company. They are trained to meet deadlines in team building activity, so this will help them to finish their work before deadlines.

The reasons above should be encouraging enough if you are still undecided about sending out your team members on a team building trip. We have some team building activities in Sabah and Sarawak here to help you make up your mind.

Review of The LimeTree Hotel, Kuching Sarawak

Strategically located in Kuching city centre, the hotel has up to 50 rooms and suites. The location of the hotel makes it easy for guests to walk to the nearby tourist’s attractions such as Chinatown Padungan and Kuching Waterfront.

The LimeTree hotel got its name from the owner’s passion for limes, and the time spent at the family’s plantation. The hotel was previously an office space. In 2007, the current owner had acquired the building, and renovation process commenced shortly after that. With lime concept in mind, the hotel’s interior and exterior had been adapted to fulfil the refreshing idea, with its lime-inspired rooms. Furthermore, as green is the theme of the hotel, it had become a practice in the hotel to save the environment whenever possible, such as providing smoke-free environment and healthy foods. Besides, guests will feel right at home by experiencing the hospitality of the friendly staffs.

Here is the review from the previous guests. The hotel receives mostly positive reviews for its friendly staff, the food, and its location, with shopping complexes such as Tun Jugah Mall, Sarawak Plaza and Riverside Plaza only a few hundred metres away within walking distance.  The rooms are quite spacious and the complimentary Wi-Fi is also a plus. However, since the hotel is right next to a busy city junction, the noises from cars are unavoidable.

It is recommended for tourists to stay at the hotel. It takes only about 25 minutes from Kuching International Airport, and to get to the city centre, you can walk for about 15 minutes west from the hotel.

12 Steps To Build An Effective And Cohesive Team

Successful team is a team that has members which enjoy working together with their colleagues. They work cooperatively with each other to achieve common goals. Cohesive team is also a team which manages to resolve conflicts which occurs among team members or their current work. This type of team is productive not because of the most popular, aggressive and verbal person dominating the team. They cooperate well with each other because they are assigned to each tasks, depending on their skills and interests. To accomplish this, managers are given the important task of leading the team.

These are 12 ways to build a great and productive team:

 1.          Identify common goals and purposes

 2.          Identify everyone’s role in a team

Everyone needs to have their own roles in a team. They need to know their own strength and skills. Everything must be done in specific terms.

 3.          Assign team members to follow up with other people who are involved in the progress

The people involved in the operation need to be kept in the loop. At least one team member need to inform the clients, higher ups or other teams if there are some changes that need to be made. Even if it was only small changes, it could affect others’ work if they are not in sync.

 4.          Prepare for conflicts

It is unavoidable for conflicts to happen in a team. You need to complete the task in a tight schedule. Disagreements between team members are normal. Some opinions state that conflicts can actually produce constructive ideas. Instead of demanding the team to stop it, a leader should let the problems arise so that team members recognize the problems and solve it by discussing it among themselves.

 5.          Conflict resolution

Find suitable ways to resolve conflicts. There are some ways to resolve conflicts successfully such as:

  • Let team member involved in the conflict to explain the problem as he or she sees it.
  • Lay down some rules so that people can have their say without interruption, or without feeling intimidated.
  • Encourage team member to solve problems themselves

6.          Leadership role

As the team leader, you need to encourage your member at the same time lead the team towards victory. You need to urge each member to be responsible on meeting their goals.

 7.          Team interaction in meetings

Each team member need to interact among themselves in order to help each other. They do not have to ask the team leader to become the middle person. Collaboration among members is encouraged to build up their creativity.

 8.          Allow team members to put their own thoughts into the assigned task

Encourage team members to have some input into their work. Do so by giving them flexibility on how they meet their work goals.

9.          Make room for minority views

These minority views are often ignored but they can improve the work done by the team. Those who can point out the flaws and voice out their opinions no matter how small it is should be heard by others without discrimination.

10.       Reward the team as a whole

Celebrate even the smallest success to keep the team motivated. It can be a celebration at a local pizza joint, a bonus, or even a congratulatory letter from a senior executive.

11.       Appraise each member individually

Humans are naïve creature. They need something to make them feel assured, and your praise will make their work feel valuable. Give each member positive feedback about their strength and role.

12.       Communicate team success

Be vocal about your success to your company. Let them know what your team had done. Acknowledge your team members and other persons who are involved indirectly in the project.

A group work is supposed to be a job where the team treats their work not as individual work but as a group contribution towards success.

Importance Of Team Building In The Workplace

Importance Of Team Building In The Workplace

Why is it team building is so important in workplace? You need a comfortable and enjoyable place to work, so it built up your motivation to keep coming to work every day. Employees are advised to work smarter in order to deliver the best results. Although individual work contributes to a team, it does not decide the success of a project. Team building in the workplace is important for several reasons.

Team building helps employees to have better communication among themselves and between them with the higher ups. Mutual trust and understanding among colleagues will be reflected in the quality of their work. Team building is a way to build that trust and motivation, for a better work output.

Let us have a sneak peak on some slogans that are suitable for team work. These are just word play but they mean so much in team work. Working in a team does not allow you to have individualism; you need to work in a team to achieve the desired result.

  • “There is no ‘I’ in TEAM”

  • “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” – Michael Jordan

  • “A group becomes a team when each member is sure enough of himself and his contribution to praise the skill of the others” – Norman Hidle

  • No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it. – H.E. Luccock

  • Everyone is needed, but no one is necessary. – Bruce Coslet

  • Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean. – Ryunosuke Satoro

 

Each member contributes to a team, no matter how small. However, by combining strength and working together, they can achieve great things.
