Price: 15 Euro per person

Zoom, the wordless book team building

Time Required: 30 minutes
Group split into teams of up to 30 people
Included materials: Pictures from the book
Price: 20 Euro per person
Minimum group size: 20

The wordless book, Zoom, by Istvan Banyai is used in this team building.
The purpose of the wordless book is so that you and your colleagues can narrate a story in a continuous sequence. The book features 30 sequential pictures that work together to form a narrative.

Each participant in the team(s) is handed a picture in which a continuous sequence is used
The participants may only look at their own pictures and each picture has clues as to which should be the following picture in the sequence
Time will be given for the participants to study their pictures because each picture will contain important information that will help the participants solve the problem of putting them into order.
The ultimate goal is for the group to place the pictures in sequential order without looking at one another’s pictures. The participants can talk to each other and discuss what is featured in their picture. This activity brings coworkers together and gets them communicating with the common goal of solving a problem, but it also allows for leaders to emerge and take control of the task.

Lego construct

Time Required: 30 – 60 minutes
Group split into small teams
Prize: trophy or other reward of choice
Price: 20 Euro per person
Minimum group size: 20
Included materials: Lego

This problem solving activity is based on the famous children’s construction toy, Lego. The instructor will build a small sculpture of a Portuguese monument with some of the building blocks and place it behind a screen away from the group.
The participants should then be divided into small teams of 3-6. Each team should be given enough building material so that they can duplicate the structure the instructor has created (specific size and color included).
One member or all members may go to the sculpture to look at it and convey to the rest of the team how the structure can be copied, no 2 members of the same team may view the example structure at the same time.

The game will go on the determined length and the best copied structure wins. This game will teach participants how to develop strategies, communicate effectively and problem solve in a group.

Back to back

Time Required: 30 minutes
Group split into teams one of whom will be the instructor
Price: 15 Euro per person

In a large group setting, one person could be the direction giver; all the rest are drawers. No one else is allowed to speak as they try to draw the shape the direction giver is describing. Afterwards, have everyone compare their drawings.
The instructors are given a picture of a shape, they may not show this picture to the other team members. His team members will sit back to back with the instructor who may not name the shape he is looking at or the color used and he will verbally inform his team how to draw this shape and color it in the correct color.
When one shape is drawn another team member becomes instructor. At the end we compare and discuss results

Simple image team building

Time Required: 30 minutes
Price: 15 Euro per person

Included materials: pictures, drawing materials

The teams line up in a straight line in front of a table with drawing materials.
There may not be any talking. The person at the back of the line (furthest from the table) on each team is shown a simple image. The image is then taken away. Once one person from each team has seen the image, he/she must then draw that image with their finger on the back of the person in front of them. The next person draws on the back of the person in front of them what they think the person behind them drew on their back. It continues down the line until it reaches the person standing at the table with the paper and pen. That person draws the image on the piece of paper. Once all teams are finished, the original image is revealed. The team who finished first, and drew the correct image wins.

Corporative team building Bingo

Time Required: 30 minutes

Each participant is handed a master bingo card.
The bingo card contains a grid of squares each containing a statement or question that will apply to some members of your group and is in line with the objectives of your class, workshop, or event.
We build the questions together with you based on what you think is most relevant for your organization.

After receiving the cards participants will be asked to mingle with the others introducing themselves and finding other participants who can sign their cards indicating that a statement applies to him/her e.g. if one of the squares says “speaks more than one language” and you asked me if that applied, I would sign that square on your card. Each participant may only fill in one square on any card.

whoever fills their card first shouts bingo and wins the challenge!
