Team Building Pursuits With An Adventure Course

  • Cultivating trust – Building trust with your team begins by talking about it, and of course, through action. This is admitting mistakes, taking feedback from them, and being honest and transparent with them. The more the leadership holds up their end in commitments and agreements, the more trust is cultivated among all the employees.
  • Problem-solving – Sometimes teams lack problem-solving skills simply because it hasn’t been encouraged. TreeRunner Grand Rapids is a great place to spur your team on to foster problem-solving in the office. It’s always good to check in with yourself as the leader of the team and make sure you’re not micromanaging things or exhibiting contradictory behaviors. Help build autonomy on your team at our facility and learn a couple problem-solving tips and tricks from our in-house team building facilitator.
  • Resource and time management – Time and resource management is crucial to the success of your business, and opens opportunities to better utilize your team. As a team at TreeRunner Grand Rapids, talk with your team and ask them how they get things done. Collaborate about how things might be more efficient, but also set clear expectations about what needs to be accomplished. When everyone is on the same page, workflow and productivity increase, which naturally the ROI does too!

Team building is an act of self-care.

We know all about bath bombs, drinking water, getting a massage, and eating better is an act of self-care — to create energy in yourself before you put it out — but really doing the emotional work, especially on your team, is no small feat with huge benefits. Organizing a team building trip is an excellent way to ease work-related pressures and allows everyone to interact on the same level playing field building bonds and strengthening interpersonal skills that translate back to the office. Not only can you celebrate everyone’s successes, our environment helps to wipe the board and clear negativity, better uniting the team.  

Team building is an exciting quest and a TreeRunner adventure course is the best place to facilitate it. We have three different difficulty courses including a beginner, intermediate, and expert course for your team to meader and explore throughout the day.
