Not to be overlooked when planning a meeting is the importance of teambuilding. Taking a break from sessions to strengthen relationships, communication, and comradery among employees goes a long way to boost overall performance during the event as well as in the workplace. With fun activities like golf, hiking, rock climbing and more, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, Wis. continues to be a leader in innovative teambuilding activities, providing personalized options to accomplish the goals of each meeting. Take a look at the resort's top five favorite activities for creative ways to build relationships among attendees.
Grand Race – This Amazing Race-style scavenger hunt is the ultimate team building event as teams following clues, completing the challenges, and taking pictures for judges to review. Grand Geneva works closely with each group to customize the race challenges and provides options for being indoors or outdoors, as well as on Grand Geneva’s 1,300-acre property or throughout downtown Lake Geneva.
Grand Pizza Challenge – Who doesn’t love combining food and teambuilding? This challenge takes pizza making a step further to include branding the pizza box with a logo and performing a 30 second live commercial. The prize? Bragging rights, and of course, delicious pizzas.
Snow Means More Fun – Winter months are a popular time to host meetings, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay inside the whole time. Build a Sled and Snow Golf (think hockey pucks and old golf clubs) are fun wintertime activities that offer a unique way to get outside and have a few laughs.
Quick Exercise Break – After hours of sitting, taking a break where attendees can let loose and move will keep guests energized and refreshed for the rest of the day. Popular breaks include a 30-minute yoga or Zumba class and puzzles.
