TEAMBUILDING IN BARCELONA
A teambuilding weekend in Barcelona means that you are spending a couple of days together. A new environment, different language and culture. This triggers and stimulates your team and create a feeling of excitement and solidarity.
From the director to the project managers, from the marketing assistant to the HR manager, everybody is equal because you left the traditional roles at the office. Your team is experiencing and learning new thing about each other and this is great for the team spirit. Besides that, taking them on a trip to Barcelona is also a gesture of appreciation to your team.
Criteria for teambuilding activities
Besides discovering a new city and building the mutual bond, a good teambuilding activity should not be missed. Pay attention to the following conditions, because choosing the right activity is important.
An activity must meet the following conditions:
1.A clear goal or purpose
Not only in your work you need a clear goal but also in your activity. A clear goal in your activity enhance the team spirit and brings the group together. For example, learning to dance salsa, or discovering your inner Gaudi with an art workshop. Eating tapas and drinking is nice, but doesn’t really contribute to the teambuilding long term.
2. Clear tasks and roles within the team
A good task distribution within the team is essential. Who does what and who is responsible for what? You are organizing a team event, so it should not feel like work! But you could think of, for example, a treasure hunt or an afternoon sailing.
3. Mutual trust
Trust is very important within a team but sometimes there is a lack of trust amongst team members. An activity can help to regain this trust. Games are a good option for this, you agree on the rules and you stick to them. If a game is played under the right circumstances and guidance, you learn a lot from it.
4. Talent in your team
Bring out the best in each other! Everyone approaches a problem in his or her way, the one is not better than the other but you can see the talents on your team. Use them! An activity that can help you with finding the talents could be an escape room. You will need to complete various challenges. A skilled guide or coach can help to bring out the talents in the group!
The perfect groupactivity for your group!
At Xventura we love designing games to help companies with their teams. We believe in the power of play and that you can learn more from playing a game together rather than sitting in a meeting room. Therefore, we have developed two unique treasure hunt concepts that will improve communication, collaboration and most importantly, are a lot of fun!
A Exciting Treasure Hunt Race
A Custom Made Program
We call it an Xpedition, an adventure to discover the city. The Xpedition takes about 2 hours and is a game that aims to find the secret location. It is set up so that everyone can participate. The Xpedition contains several different elements, therefore, you will need all the talent on your team to complete the challenges. You have a clear goal; find the secret location! You will have to divide the tasks and use the talents in your group.
But what makes our treasure hunt so unique? The game is played without your phone! Yes, you read that right. In an era where we do everything on our phone, we have developed a tour without it. Playing without your phone makes that you disconnect from your day to day and connect with your surroundings and colleagues. You are challenged by the different puzzles and riddles. We will trigger your inner child so you can play outside again.
We are true game masters with years of experience in teambuilding activities. From groups of 40 up to 200 people, we can design a custom made treasure hunt any where! Our treasure hunts are focussed on communication, collaboration and fun! The group will be divided into smaller teams and we will discover the surroundings while challenging ourselves to solve the challenges. Problem solving and creative thinking are triggered in the hunt to the secret location. Combine one of our games with an small bite and cold drink at the end or we can organise an amazing picnic in the park!
The programs start from 1 hour up to 6 and will be custom made to your wishes. You can choose the start and finish location, this option is great if you want to start from the hotel to the restaurant or from the meeting room to the hotel for example.
