Team building is one of those times of the year that corporate workers look forward to. It is an opportunity to unwind, or bond with your co-workers outside of your usual work environment. However, for the organizers of this activity, it is important to keep your objectives in mind as you go about with your activities for the said event. One of the biggest challenges is in terms of deciding what kind of activity to engage in to ensure that you can help inculcate all of the characteristics that you would want to develop within the employees of your team.
Surprisingly, you can come up with lots of fun ideas for your business team building that involves photography. You need only one camera to use for your team and a lot of enthusiasm in order to make this activity a success.
The first activity is to conduct a treasure hunt. All members of your team need to gather clues to solve a theme that is set up for this game. But here is the twist: the members of the team must use their camera in order to capture a photo that will depict the answer that is required for this game. The team that will be able to provide the closest creative re-imagining of the theme will win the challenge.
Another fun idea for incorporating photography into your business team building is through a game known as “Tell A Story”. This is pretty simple as each team would have to tell a story through photos they had captured. However, this will be slightly challenging as each photo must represent a word or phrase. Then you will have to connect those photos in order to literally tell a story.
Team building activities involving photography will require more teamwork than what would appear initially. On the other hand, it will focus more on the creative aspect of your team cooperation that is measured in a tangible output. Other factors wherein photography events can be useful in this kind of activity deals with how you handle with stress when assigned a particular task, how you interact with members of the team, appropriate of responsibilities, and developing inter-group relations.
