Make The Most Of Your Trip To Reno.
Add energy and enthusiasm to your off-site meetings and conferences in Reno by adding a team building bowling tournament. Why bowling? Everybody from the junior manager to the senior executive has probably spent some time in a bowling center. Best of all, you don’t have to be good to have a great time. Even a gutter ball or two doesn’t get in the way of a good time. Here are three tips to remember when planning a bowling team-building outing:
Bowling is a team sport.
Bowling is a game that can be played as an individual or as a team. Emphasizing the power of team dynamics can be easily illustrated. People work together, they start giving tips and encouragement to the weaker players. This is corporate America in a microcosm.
Build the teams purposefully.
For the best results, choose your teams carefully. Don’t simply divide the alphabet or make it a battle of the sexes. Assign people with the goal of getting people and departments working together. Make sure that you don’t put all the stronger bowlers on the same team.
Reinforce team building with an awards presentation.
Decide what awards to hand out at the conclusion of the event. Identical prizes should be given to all team members of the team with the highest score and of the second and third place teams. You may want to award a few individual prizes for highest score in each game. Humorous awards “worst bowler on the planet” can always be good for the non-bowlers on the teams.
Team building is essential in creating highly functioning business units. And there is no easier way to organize a team-building event than introducing a bowling tournament!
