Free team building kit provides managers with proven team building exercises, activities and games to boost morale and build winning teams
(Falls Church, Va.) On a shoe string budget? No need to order up an expensive round of paintball to gain the benefits of proven team building exercises. A new report—17 Team Building Ideas from Business Management Daily—offers free, effective team building ideas to try at your very next meeting.  Help your employees reach their state of optimal challenge and “flow” with this inspiring new report.

17 Team Building Ideas provides real-life teamwork examples, exercises and tips to lead winning teams. Specifically, you’ll find tips on corporate team building, team building exercises to help your team see the big picture, fun team building activities (like Taking the Marshmallow Challenge), proven teamwork examples (such as Mayo Clinic’s team collaboration secrets), creative team building activities, team building training, and suggestions for bonding activities that are tied to your core values.

Here are just a few of many free team building ideas detailed in the free report:
  1. Try this game at your next meeting:  “Rethink the Ordinary.” Bring a grab bag of ordinary items and rethink their uses. Just 20 minutes of brainstorming leads to innovative thinking and new inventions.
  2. Mimic the Mayo Clinic’s team approach for your most pressing customer problem. Gather your “specialists” together and descend on the problem like pit stop mechanics—sharing and transferring expertise to creatively address both problem and symptoms for the best possible outcome.
  3. Imagine the worst. Then deal with it. Doug Stern, CEO of United Media, asks his team to “peer into the darkness” together, to come up with detailed plans in response to each nightmare scenario. By summoning their courage, he unleashes tremendous potential, smart risk-taking and confidence to confront the unknown.  
These and other inspiring examples are described in step-by-step detail in 17 Team Building Ideas. They will inspire you to take your leadership skills to the next level. Your employees will work longer, smarter and happier as they reach their state of optimal challenge and “flow.” You’ll go from being a manager who oversees people to a leader who molds increasingly creative, autonomous workers into “dream teams.”    Download your FREE Special Report here.
