Create Memories For a Lifetime

The Leader’s Institute is known for making boring meetings fun. Team building is more than “getting to know you” table topic questions. There’s no magic solution to fix the challenges an organization may face, but studies have shown that regular socializing among coworkers has many positive benefits for employees. Build morale with our time-tested and audience-approved company team building activities.

The increase of the hybrid workplace makes a workplace lunch or mid-day coffee run harder to accomplish. There are no more casual conversations at the water cooler. Replace those with regular team building outings your workers will love with The Leaders Institute®.

Our team has more than 20 years of team building experience and will help you choose the perfect company team event for you.

Choosing the Best Team Building Event for the Needs of Your Group.

With over 20 years of team building experience, we know that choosing the perfect team building activity can be a challenge. So, we create a series of questions that can help point you in the right direction.

  • Will your team be meeting in-person or virtually? Many of your choices will be determined by how your team chooses to meet.
  • How big is your group? How many people are you expecting? Large group activities are very different from small group activities.
  • What Is the main purpose of team activity? Are you wanting to reward your team or have fun? Or is your team experiencing challenges? Different events create different outcomes.
  • Do you want to include charitable activities to the event? Charity team building activities require more investment, but the emotional impact is worth every penny.

Virtual Corporate Teambuilding Events

Collaboration is always possible – even if it’s through a computer screen. These team games are engaging, challenging, and rewarding. Participate with coworkers near and far with corporate team building games designed to be interactive and improve the company culture in a remote environment.

Tips for conducting virtual team building events:

  • First, in the virtual meeting world, shorter is better. We recommend an hour-long session. Set a time limit of an hour-and-a-half max.
  • Make virtual team-building events stand-alone activities. (Don’t add them into an already crowded meeting agenda.)
  • In the meeting invitation, ask participants to come to the meeting with their cameras and microphones on.

Virtual escape rooms and online games can be an excellent choice for virtual teams. We recommend using Zoom to access your meeting. Zoom has the ability to divide the group into breakout rooms. This will make your online team activity more interactive for your remote employees.

Charity Team Building Events For Large Groups

The best team meetings are ones where the team leader is able to get the entire group to participate all at the same time. This is fairly easy to do with small teams. However, there is a big difference between large and small group activities. For large groups, making sure everyone is happy and everyone is participating is more challenging. So, our recommendations here are ways to get the entire team to have a great time while you as the organizer get great feedback.

A great way to get a group of people to form a cohesive team is to give them a challenge where each individual can contribute to the solution. When we designed the first charity team activity we realized that if teams just built a bike or just boxed up canned goods, they would also just be doing manual labor. That isn’t fun. And it doesn’t build a strong team.

So, the philosophy behind good large group team building programs is to use “team work” to build “teamwork.” We divide the large group into small teams. Each team is given a series of challenges to problem solve together. Successful teams work toward the common goal of accomplishing each challenge. When they do, acquire all the parts that they need to build a bike, fill a backpack, or stuff a Teddy bear. The donation means something to the group because they EARNED it!

Improve Company Culture With Team Workshops

Sometimes, a team building activity isn’t appropriate for the situation. Team events and activities usually just intensify the culture already within a group. So, if you have a great team culture and want to reward your team, any fun team game may work. However, if morale is down or tensions are high, a team workshop might be a better choice.

Team workshops are classroom training sessions designed to create a behavior change. If you want to improve communication, build trust, or teach your team how to resolve conflicts, this sessions may be a good fit.

Workshops can be delivered in one-hour breakout sessions, half-day workshops, or 2-day seminars. You can also pair a workshop with one of our other team building activities to get both the behavior change from the classroom session and the fun activity to benefit a charity.

Not sure where to start? Try a team assessment to determine the strengths and weaknesses of your group as a team. Team Assessment that Creats a S.W.O.T. Analysis of your team.
