Team building: Indoors or Outdoors

Team building is a flexible practice that can take on many guises, and it’s something that is equally effective indoors or out. The art of making people work together and understand their strengths and weaknesses can be based on lots of different scenarios. Obviously some things need to be done outside as they require more than a little room to do them, whereas others are more close focus and can be carried out within a room or two. Companies running Dubai corporate team building activities are well versed in a whole range of different schemes that will suit your needs. Outdoor activities might include those where members of the team might be pitched against each other, such as:

Go-kart racing - Members of the team race against each other to win a prize. This demonstrates who has the most skill behind a wheel but also teaches concentration and judgement.

Archery - Skill with arrows replaces go-carts as individuals demonstrate ability and aim to get the highest score. Used to promote precision and concentration.

Reverse steer - A specially engineered car with reverse controls has to be driven by a blindfolded driver with team helpers giving directions and advising them what they need to do. Teaches teamwork and trust.

Paintballing - Warfare carried out with pneumatic guns that fire small paint filled pellets. Usually done as a team against team exercise, it teaches leadership, strategy, and command following. Simple combat to wipe out the opposite team can be changed for Capture the Flag mode, where each team tries to retrieve a flag from the opposing team’s base camp.

Rocket building - Teams are given the components needed to construct a water-powered rocket, but with the ability to change aerodynamics and weight distribution. The team who gets theirs the furthest wins the contest.

Indoors or outdoorsWhile outdoor pursuits are useful for teaching a number of different skills, room-based activities allow the client to apply more mental aspects to their team building. Plenty of indoor team building games companies in Dubai offer indoor team building games in Dubai, and can help you with such exciting pursuits as:

Construction games. Whether it’s the Eiffel tower or a golf ball catching device, teams are supplied with unlikely components and asked to build certain assemblies against each other and the clock.

Mental games. Based on the premise that certain circumstances have arisen and a solution has to be found, teams are charged with coming up with good solutions.  From sinking yachts through getting certain animals and feed across a river without any of them getting eaten or running away to escaping a spreading lava pool with limited resources, mental games help team focus and arrive at solutions quickly.
