Team up in a friendly game of paintball at
Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, MI.
We’ve all heard the phrase “teamwork makes the dream work.” It’s the favorite phrase used by bosses, coaches, and mentors alike for decades. But there’s a reason it’s so popular. Teamwork really does make the dream work, and it’s a key factor in the success of any group, company, or community made up of more than one person. But as a meeting planner, it can be hard to organize large group activities that promote teamwork when you’re stuck inside the confines of a hotel or conference center. You’re options are limited in terms of space, activities, and equipment. That’s why resorts are the perfect option for any meeting, event, or conference that focuses on teamwork.
Resorts have space galore! Many resorts were built upon acres and acres of land so they typically have the space required for any activities planned, whether it be in one of their ballrooms, one of many breakout rooms, or outside in a large expanse of grass or woods. Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, MI has the space to accommodate any number of guests with their convention facilities and banquet halls. Their diverse lodging options give your guests a place to sleep, and their impressive number of activities provide hours, or even days of fun. Get down to business in one of their many meeting spaces throughout the resort, and then team up and suit up in camo and ammo for a game of paintball on their onsite course. It may not seem like it, but paintball can be a great team builder. Teams will quickly learn that in order to win, they have to work and plan together. Communication, trust, strategic planning, leadership, time and resource management, problem solving, and adapting to change are all involved and will help build a better, stronger team on and off the paintball course.
But if you have a group that’s not exactly cut out for paintball, try kayaking. Lutsen Resort and Grand Superior Lodge offers group kayaking tours. Whether your team bonds over sharing a new experience or has to work together to maneuver their kayaks, it’s a great activity that will bring them closer. They’ll share laughs, smiles, hardships, and stories while cruising on the lake and working hard to stay together. Once done kayaking, gather around a bonfire on the beach. There’s just something about a bonfire that evokes everybody’s good side and provides a bonding experience. The resort will even provide the makings for S’mores to bring out the nostalgia amongst your group. It’s great team bonding and will make an impact on your group’s future success.
Resorts are one of those venues that can make the planner’s life a little easier by already having the team building experience set up, and include a qualified and seasoned staff that make sure it’s always beneficial for the attendees. There’s no doubt that teamwork is a crucial characteristic in progress and success, so it’s important to always include some sort of team building activity in every meeting or event, because ultimately, teamwork is what makes the dream work!
