Games to Play for Team Building

There is no denying that an office party can bring employees together. This will help in team-building and even motivate employees to work harder and therefore be more productive.

The foundation of good teamwork is having a shared commitment to common objectives. Without this, all other forms of team building will have a limited impact. Therefore companies use teambuilding activities. Food is a great way to bring individuals together. A kitchen is one place where family and friends spend a lot of time in. Therefore, many organizations are arranging cooking group activities to help employees come together. Yet, once the cooking is done there are other games that employees can play. Mentioned below are such team building activities to participate in:

Two Truths and a Lie:

Start out by having every team member secretly write down two truths about themselves and one lie on a small piece of paper. Once each person has completed this step, allow 10-15 minutes for open conversation where everyone quizzes each other on their three questions. The idea is to convince others that a lie is actually a truth; while on the other hand, an employee tries to guess other people’s truths/lies by asking them questions. After the conversational period, employees should gather in a circle and one by one repeat each one of their three statements and have the group vote on which one they think is the lie. This game helps to encourage better communication in the office, as well as it lets employees get to know their coworkers better.

Coin Logo:

Begin by asking all participants to empty their pockets, purses, and wallets of any coins they may have and place them on the table in front of them. If someone doesn’t have any coins or only has very few, others in the room can share their coins with them. Instruct each person to create their own personal logo using the coins in front of them in just one minute. Other materials they may have on them, such as pens, notebooks, wallets, etc. can also be used in creation of the logo. If there is a particularly large group, people can be broken up into teams of 3-6 people and instructed to create a logo that represents them as a team or the whole room can gather to use the coins to create a logo for the organization/group/department/etc. Each solitary participant can explain their logo to the group or if the room was split into groups, the leader can have each group discuss what led to the team logo and what it says about them. Not only does this activity promote self and mutual awareness, but it also enables participants to get to know each other on a more personal level.
