Rewards and Learning Outcomes
Successful teams combine their different individual skills, developing creative solutions to complete each of the mystery challenges. Teams learn to work efficiently and effectively within limited time constraints. Beat the Box is a truly collaborative team exercise as in the final stages of the game teams must cooperate, joining their clues together in order to uncover the correct code.
The Beat the Box challenge is very much designed with results and outcomes in mind. Team Challenge Company uses scientifically verified techniques to create the very best in challenges and team building environments.
The learning outcomes from Beat the Box come from the ability to balance speaking up when you think you have something to contribute, versus stepping back and listening when other members of the team do the same.
Beat the Box challenges your team to stretch their minds, control their mouths, and open their ears. No single member of the team will be able to solve all the different problems, so the only way forward is to work together and bring all your skills into one place.
Because of the sheer variety of puzzles, your team will be forced to consider every possible angle to each and every problem. Just like in the corporate environment, there will be problems that have been confronted again and again from the same position to no avail. Only with the alternative angles that can come from a team pulling together can the problems be solved.
Beat the Box uses time pressure to focus energy and crystalise effort into something powerful. The pressure of knowing that a specific deadline looms forces the participants to focus their efforts on finding a solution.
Thanks to all these experiences and engagements with difficult problems, teams will learn the value of each other's individual skills, the balance between contributing and listening, the focusing power of a close deadline, and the mental exercise and discipline that comes with unorthodox thinking.
