As far as internally at our location we are a small group and we spend a large amount of time together. I’m all for some team building and lesson learning type activities for us to do, but today we kicked it easy and did some bonding. It was a lot of fun and to see the girls appreciate the value of learning more about each other was incredible. (As a young/inexperienced office manager little things like this mean a great deal to me, dont judge me. 🙂 …). Each person gave me two “trivia facts” about themselves that the others probably didn’t know about them. I made a list and had everyone write in their guess on each line and turn it back in. Almost ALL of them were wrong so everyone did a great job digging up little known facts about themselves. At lunch I read off each trivia fact and let the group share who their guess was and why and then the person it was about would confess and then tell the story related to their fact. We learned some hilarious things about each other today! From tattoos, karate chops, “dream” kid names, absolute won’ts and places they’ve traveled. We had so much fun and the timing was perfect.
Team building exercises don’t always have to be work related tasks-sometimes they can just be “bonding”.
