How to Stay on Message With Your Team Building Event

An event theme that reflects the desired spirit and intention can help to embody the message. Don’t forget to inspire. Not being too banal or evident is important. For example, if you intend to create a new sense of inter-departmental cooperation within a group, a title like ‘Increased Cooperation Week’ may not be very successful.

A ‘Blockbuster Moviemaking Challenge’ might be way more intriguing and entice more emotional reaction among the participants. Think about obtaining team building games that really is related to your mission, that involve activities and dynamics relevant enough to the principles. A proper level of customization might be required in order to meet your requirements. You should be offered a wide range of flexible programs that respond to what you need if the team building company is professional. After you have found the right team building company that supports your message, and added the right ‘hype’ in order to promote it, you can now move on to work out a few details. Should this take place onsite or offsite? Outdoors or in? High energy? Tabletop exercise?

Take into consideration how each and every aspect of the program matches your intention and customize accordingly. A nice quantity of buildup can be included in the planning of any good team building event. Do whatever you can in order to produce early excitement about the event. Always keep your message focused. You can maybe think of a narrative of messages that gently build upon each other through small events at your place.. Organize yourself like this so that the final message delivered on the big day makes sense totally and is instilled with more meaning. During the event itself, make sure that your staff knows very well the message in progress, and that they support the message whenever they can.

Try to add key message points in the activities, the debriefs and the conclusions. Hopefully, you will have some natural follow up material going on after the final message is delivered. Try to develop the message in the following weeks using the deliverables from the event. Try to find new ways to keep your participants invested even after the event is ‘over’. This will ensure you obtain even more value from the event. But in reality, a one-time event is way less effective than a follow up of team building exercises. You can imagine setting up as a well crafted message the beginning of a story in which your participants are a part. The outcome will be even bigger with every new chapter.
