When a concern on how to build a team comes up, one would immediately think a trip out of town, rest days that are spent on the beach, or any activity that involves the outdoors. Only when the unavailability of the option of it being outdoors will one come up with team building activities such as classroom trainings, sit down conferences, and other uneventful activities that one can have outdoors. Contrary to what most people think, a team building exercise can be an equally exciting event that can happen inside, while matching the excitement that the outdoors can offer.
How can one plan for an exciting activity while planning for it to be held indoors? There are lots of ways. One can have a scavenger hunt involving the underneath storage that can be found in tables, chairs, and other office equipment. It can be an icebreaker game or a round robin of charades. The beauty of indoor activities is their flexibility in their count of team building days. Charades is an activity that can build a team with only a few minutes as a time frame. With a longer time frame and a luxurious approach to it, a team building can be held in a hotel conference room, seating people in tables randomly for each part of the session. These activities are usually brainstorming sessions where teams will work on a list of different versions of time management tasks, setting up lists of priorities, or sharing of experiences between its members.
