4 Creative Team-Building Activities

Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea. – Jim Rohn.

There are plenty of articles about employee engagement and on how to get employees enjoy their work. However, sometimes, fun is all you need to foster teamspirit.

Here are four unique and creative team-building activities for your employees that are fun guaranteed.

1. 2 Truths And A Lie

Recommended number of People: 10 to 15

Material required: None

Goal: To guess the true statement from other players’ set of statements and to make other players believe your false statements to be true.

How to play:

Step 1: Every player writes down three statements about himself (2 truths and one lie)

Step 2: Each player is asked to read those statements aloud to the group.

Step 3: Take a vote on which statement is a lie.

Step 4: The players who guess the false statement correctly get one point each. If no one is able to guess it correctly, then the player who wrote the statements wins the points.

Step 5: Continue steps (1 – 4) and the player with most points wins the game.

2. Back-to-back Drawing

Recommended number of players: Multiple teams of 2 people

Step 3: The player who receives the picture, verbally explains the picture to his teammate and the teammate tries to draw the picture on the paper.

Step 4: On finishing, each pair compares their original shape to the drawing, and consider how they worked together, and where they could improve their communication.
