Benefits of Team Building Activities

We’re looking at the benefits of team building activities, and how they are one of the best ways of identifying strengths and weaknesses of your team. Communication, planning, listening and problem solving are all skills which require working on from time to time. 

Because the way escape games have been devised, communicating with each other is essential or no one gets out. The emphasis is on team work, so everyone has to speak to each other in helping to find the clues and puzzles and then work them out. If you don’t speak to each other, then you don’t get out within the hour. Of course, listening is a key skill because if you don’t listen, you won’t know how to find the clues and then work them out – as a team. 

How does your team problem solve?

What are their strengths and weaknesses? Perhaps one or two are good at cognitive skills, others good at maths, others good at something else that contributes to solving the clues. By watching how they both work together, and then work on the puzzles, you start to have a firm picture of what you’re dealing with in terms of skills and talents. If you have a project in mind in the foreseeable future, then you may find this the perfect opportunity to find your key players. 

By visiting Escape Leicester, you can engage your team in an escape room game for an hour, giving them the perfect getaway from the inside of the office, while giving you the perfect opportunity to identify your next project team. 

To summarise, these are some of the benefits of team building activities with escape rooms in mind -

• Improved communication 

• A lasting, more positive feel good factor afterwards

• A great ice breaker and a fantastic way for new members to bond

• Good for team building and goal setting

• A way for the team leader and the team members themselves to recognise strengths and weaknesses 

• Increased productivity at work.

There are different team building activities out there which we believe are nowhere near as good as what we offer here at escape games Leicester. You can try army military style circuit training, It’s a Knockout type games, and a number of games you could easily put together in a free room back at base. However, if you want to get your team out of the office and into an exciting environment where they can put themselves to the test with this fantastic game, then escape rooms are the only answer. 

So, if you want to reap the rewards of team building activities at your organisation then we strongly recommend our Escape games Leicester, why not book a room today and the sooner you do, the sooner you and your team can take part.
