Bonding Belt:

Bonding Belt is a fantastic team-building game that encourages discussion and interactions between co-workers and peers.

The game only lasts for 15 to 30 minutes, so you could play it before staff or group meetings!

The goal of Bonding Belt is to get from point A to point B, as a team and while “stuck” together, as quickly as possible.

For the best results, get at least 6 people involved in this game. You can play with up to 60, but teams of more than 10 can get a little crazy.

All you need to play:

  • A large, clear space to allow teams to move between two points.
  • A roll of cling film per team (or some rope, a band, or anything to keep everyone together)
  • A timer

“Team building should spark unity, not mutiny”

Each team is banded together with film or tape to ensure they are united in movements.

To start, give the teams 5 minutes to discuss their strategies. At the end of that 5 minutes, they should be banded and ready to go.

Next, make sure the start and finish lines are clearly labelled and both teams are aware of the starting and ending point.

Then let your teams run, and keep track of their end times. Once all teams are aware of their finishing times, give them an opportunity to re-strategies their next attempt to beat their previous score.

Repeat this process as many times as you’d like until the teams achieve their best times!

Circle of questions

As your business grows, it’s inevitable that you will have new team members.

You also might possibly have to form new teams as people move to different positions and job responsibilities change.

This game is perfect for promoting communication, listening skills, and motivation.

This game is called Circle of Questions, and its name pretty much says it all. It’s a great game if you’re attempting to work towards a theme or problem you would like to address as a company.

You can use as little as 10 to 12 people to play this game and can go up to as many as you would like.

Depending on how long you want to play, the duration can last anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.

All you need to play:

  • A whistle
  • A stopwatch
  • Pens or pencils& paper

How well do you know your co-workers or employees?

Begin Circle of Questions by splitting the group into two equal teams (if there is an odd number, then either find another participant or let someone sit out until the next game). Ask one team to stand in a circle facing outwards, then ask the second team to create a slightly larger circle around the first one facing inwards.

First have both teams greet each other. Then the people in the inner circle will ask a question (of a manager’s choice) of the person opposite them in the outer circle.

That employee will have 30 seconds to give an answer before the whistle blows. Make these open-ended questions to get interesting answers.

After the allotted 30 seconds is up, the person in the outer circle will ask the person in the inner circle the same question.

After both people, have asked each other a question, then the inner circle will move clockwise one place and the outer circle will move counter clockwise one space to find a new partner.

Expect some confusion at first, but after several tries you will get the hang of it. Repeat this exercise by asking more questions, each time alternating which circle gets to ask the question first.

Stop the exercise when everyone has asked and answered a question, or whenever you get to an appropriate stopping point, or if you run out of pre-approved questions.

Being there

Anyone can have a team, but you can’t have a great team without communication.

Effective communication is the foundation to keep any relationship (personal or professional) succeeding and thriving.

Communication is the foundation of any great company. To truly succeed, you should know how to voice your thoughts and opinions but also understand how to listen and receive information.

The third game is called Being There. This game will help your team address distractions as well as deal with attention span. How aware are you of the world and working environment you are living in?

How does “being there” and “being present” affect a relationship or career? This game gives any team a playful introduction into a very important topic.

no limit on the number of people who can play. The game can last anywhere from 20 minutes to 40 minutes, depending on how many people play and how many questions you ask.

All you need to play:

  • A large open space
  • Chairs
  • A list of 5-20 questions (about the work/meeting environment OR about the participants themselves)

“Communication and memory are key in the workplace”

Start Being There by reading off the questions to both teams and having them write down their answers on a sheet of paper.

To make it competitive, you can have teams exchange answer sheets and score each other while the answers are being read.

The winning team will receive a prize.
