It can be difficult as a boss to find activities an entire group of people will enjoy.
Not everyone has the same interests or personality type. It’s important you try different types of games to see what works best for your office.
This article will give you 5 leadership games that your employees won’t hate.
1. Try an Escape Room
Escape rooms have been trendy in the United States for a few years now.
They’re the perfect team building activity because they bring out everyone’s strengths.
You’ll quickly discover who the outgoing leaders of the group are, and who the silent but swift workers are. Escape rooms take one hour at most, so it won’t detract from a full workday.
2. Have a Board Game Afternoon
Board games bring people together. Strategy board games help people exercise their minds.
Have a board game afternoon at work where you set up games and snacks. Pair people up to play games with others who they don’t often get to work with.
Pick strategy games like Settlers of Catan, Twilight Struggle, and Scythe to really get people thinking.
3. Hold an Improv Workshop
Improvisational comedy is great for workplace bonding.
Improv games cause you to think on your feet and reveal your silly side.
Bring in a trained improv coach to teach you and your office games. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have learned the power of saying “yes and” in your everyday life.
Improv teaches positivity and teamwork. Every scene you perform requires working together and building your scene partners up.
Improv and other team building workshops will help you and your employees bond.
4. Scavenger Hunt
Everybody loves a good scavenger hunt. The adrenaline of finding the next clue wakes up the inner child in everyone.
Arrange a scavenger hunt around your office so that your employees have to get up from their desks and explore their workplace.
The clues can all include trivia about the company so that people will learn while playing. Have a prize for the winning team.
5. Go to Bar Trivia
A trivia night is a great way to let people show off the obscure facts they know.
At a trivia night, each of your employees will bring something to the table.
Check Facebook to find local trivia nights in your area. Many bars do general knowledge and themed nights.
Trivia is a nice way to bond outside of work and get to know one another’s interests.
