You can do more than just have fun…

Here at Applause Entertainment, we are always for snazzing up an event, whether it be a small-scale party, or a large corporate event. So today, we are going to talk about some ways in which you can enhance your corporate events – not just by hiring entertainment, but to boost your creativity ideas for whole event concepts. Get those idea synapsis firing! End of year is coming up, and it’s the perfect time to use some of these ideas.

One of the first, most beneficial events that you can hold, is to get your office – whether it’s just one branch, or across all branches – to get together for an event with charitable benefits. It may seem counterintuitive – isn’t the teambuilding supposed to be about the employees? Aren’t you always telling us to appreciate our workers? Why are we sending them out to do more work? – but the truth is, getting a bunch of people who are always working with each other to then work together for other people can be extremely rewarding. Not only does it promote the usual teambuilding benefits, such as opening communication channels and give a new perspective on problem solving, but it is encouraging a sense of community cohesion amongst the employees, and the wider community. It may create awareness for issues and problems right in their backyard that they never realized existed, and by hitting a solid goal and seeing the results not only in themselves, but for those around them, the sense of accomplishment can be enormous.

So what are some charitable ways in which teambuilding can occur? One suggestion can be to help out local homeless shelters, or kitchens. These places always need extra hands to help, and by adding competitive elements to simple tasks such as the upkeep of those shelters (eg. Who can pass a “Boot Camp Sargent’s” inspection?); preparing the food; help with gardening, it promotes problem solving and group cohesion. A great addition to this, would be to take photographs or film the process, so that the participants not only have memories of themselves giving back to the community, but it can even be teaching aids for those with strong initiative.

Another idea, a delicious idea, can be cooking classes. Now, this is a great idea because often workplaces don’t necessarily bring out the chef in everyone – sure, you may notice that someone’s been bringing delicious smelling lunches, or someone’s triple choc threat cookies are inarguably the best in the building – but cooking classes give people the chance to show another part of themselves.

Cooking can be fun, it can be playful, and so they can be great ice-breakers, but anyone who watches Masterchef, Iron Chef, or has stood in front of a stove before can tell you: getting it to be amazing is a skill. Fortunately, these skills are completely learnable! Group cooking classes are great, because if someone is much more skilled than another person, they can be encouraged to share their knowledge and help others out, and if someone isn’t as familiar with all their spices, this sort of team building event can teach them to ask for help when they’re out of their depth, but to also look around them and try to learn from the example of others. Most importantly, cooking classes’ skills that are useful outside of the office, yet completely transferable inside the office: time management, task prioritizing, not to mention totally being able to nail a crème brulee for Tuck-in Thursdays!

Speaking of transferable skills, there’s also juggling classes. Far from being a silly romp to throw and catch balls, juggling team building classes can actually be the path seldom taken, but one that nonetheless leads to amazing self-discovery. Many people probably haven’t tried learning how to juggle, or if they had, they didn’t really learn it properly. The few who can juggle, know that it takes practise but also a specific determined mindset to master juggling. The really interesting thing about a skill-based teambuilding workshop, is that often participants begin either with reluctance, negativity, or simply refusing to believe that they can achieve what is seemingly an impossible task set to them. Even more likely is that after initial failure, where the participant’s optimism may begin to dwindle, they begin to think about giving up.

juggle balls

The difference between a workshop that discourages trying after failure, and a well-conducted workshop by professionals who not only have the skill being taught, but understand the fundamental goals behind teambuilding activities, is that all the negative outcomes listed above are then used to help the participant understand themselves. Instead of superficially repeating “just try harder!” or being condescending towards those who don’t want to participate, a well-crafted workshop can be instrumental in changing a person’s mindset, turning it inwards to let them really examine themselves. If you have a team where not everyone is capable of self-motivation and discovery, workshops such as juggling workshops can actually train them to slowly become those kind of people. In a similar way to cooking classes, juggling workshops provide not only an external skill, but actually transfer skills that participants will find useful in the workplace. It’s like the adult version of children’s learning games and programs – both fun, and educational.

No matter what you are doing, it is always important to set your goals. What do you want to achieve from this event? Remember, this is an end-of-year party as well as corporate teambuilding, so you want the participants to enjoy themselves. The ideas that we’ve listed above may not necessarily translate to what you and your company needs. Similarly, you need to understand your people! Some events call for extroverted engagement, and you may have an office with half outgoing types, and half introverted types. Think about how you can cater to these personalities, because there’s no point forcing people to enjoy themselves – it just won’t happen.

So, time is ticking away! Has this helped you get your ideas flowing? Did it help you see things from a different perspective? If so, you need to do your bookings NOW, because while your ideas may be unlimited, free calendar dates are not!
