Ice-breakers Before you crack on with the day's activities, why not prepare your team for a day of fun and exciting development with an ice-breaker? It doesn't have to be very long and it means you can show the quieter team members that it's not so scary getting involved with the whole team to complete a task. In addition, ice-breakers are brilliant for breaking down communication barriers meaning that you can ensure your team members are ready to actually work together to achieve a common goal using communication and general teamwork skills. Motivational Speech and Actions This doesn't mean writing an hour long speech to give to your employees before the big day, it can simply mean cheering other team members on and saying little things like ‘Good job!' and ‘Fantastic work!' on the day to help promote confidence building. This also helps other team members to recognise the strengths of fellow employees, a tool that's very beneficial in the workplace. However, it's not just about providing compliments, you should also throw a few constructive comments in there too to help them improve next time round. Whether this means a few tips on how to get through the forest of inflatable tubes or a couple of tricks when it comes to brain teasers, both you and your employees will benefit from providing mutual support.
