Team building is essential to any workplace environment. If you cannot get along well with your coworkers, not only will you find work hard, but you will lack in job performance due to the environment. There are a variety of teambuilding experiences out there, but beyond a doubt, paintball is one of the very best. Extreme Sports Land offers this opportunity for businesses to help build and improve teamwork. This is what paintball can do for your team.
Uses critical thinking in a non-workplace.
Paintball is a game of skill and strategy. Working as a team, you will have to build a strategy and utilize it if you are going to beat the competition. Knowing how to quickly think on your feet in a combat environment can easily reinforce the critical thinking needed at work.
Work with your team in a new way.
Regardless of the type of business that you work in, a team needs to operate the same way. People need to be able to offer suggestions, take ideas and criticism, and focus on the goal of the job itself, setting all egos aside. With paintball, your team can be doing this out in nature, having fun, and using energy. Your team will have to listen to one another if they are going to make it through the game successfully. Listening to each other on a battlefield will carry on to the workplace.
Making new memories.
Beyond the strategy and team element of paintball, your team is going to be making amazing memories together on the battlefield. This is going to give you something to reflect back on and create some inside jokes about for the future. Your team will go from being simply coworkers, to potential friends. At the very least your team is going to have some common ground to talk about for years to come.
Refresh the group.
Getting your whole team in a completely different environment is refreshing, especially if the workplace has been stressful recently. Taking the group out to get a change of scenery together can have the similar effect as a vacation. It can give you a chance to reset as a group and revaluate your attitude and perception. A bit of fresh air is good for anyone and being able to do it as a team, in a controlled but fun environment, can work wonders.
New roles could be revealed.
One of the most amazing and surprising things that can come out of a team building paintball activity is the role of team members might shift. Workers who are at a lower seniority might shine on the battlefield, demonstrating leadership skills that had previously been unnoticed or undiscovered. Through this you might find potential for advancement or future at work, knowing that they can handle a leadership role, even in a new and unpredictable environment.
Above all else, paintballing is such a blast that any team will love the chance to get out there and let loose.
