Today we played lawn Olympics with a team of executives from Los Angeles. They were on a retreat at Terranea Resort, a magnificent Los Angeles property with magnificent coastal views straight to Catalina.
The teambuilding objectives were simple: encourage team bonding through play. The teams had to complete a variety of games, activities and checkpoints. Some involved hands, others feet, but mostly the games involved group coordination and teamwork. What could be heard throughout the day was cheering and laughter. Just playing games in the bright sun overlooking the Pacific can make your company a special place to work. Nothing builds strong company cultures like that.
