Here are our top 5 reasons why you should connect with your team on an outdoor adventure!
1. Build a stronger team
Communication, teamwork, and creativity are all strengthened through team building exercises. When you meet in person and embark on an adventure outdoors together you’ll be able to improve team cohesion, challenge limits, build confidence, and strengthen bonds. Connecting with your team outdoors can also help everyone to get to know each other better and learn to work together as a team outside of work.
2. Breaking down barriers
Mixing and mingling with your work family is the best way to build bonds. But what about the departments that team members don’t work directly with? Inviting the entire team to an outdoor team-building event allows for everyone to meet and learn about one another. Coworkers on the other side of the wall (or screen!) become more human as a result of these new interactions. What an excellent way to cultivate the team on a broader scale!
3. Connect without distractions
Just being out in nature provides the perfect setting for connecting with your surroundings, now add in an adventurous activity that will allow everyone to immerse themselves in the moment. Given the opportunity to step away from the constant distractions of cell phones, notifications, and computer screens your team will be able to connect on a deeper level.
4. Grow company culture
Does your company strive to uphold a strong collaborative culture? If so, giving your employees the chance to connect outside of work projects can be key to validating your employees, promoting creativity, boosting company morale, and creating a better, more focused team!
5. Learn something new
You’ll be surprised what you learn about your team and even yourself when you head out on an off the beaten path outdoor adventure! Connecting with your team in the great outdoors inspires a sense of discovery and gives opportunities for learning a new skill, about a new area, and about one another.
