FOX IN A BOX IS THE ULTIMATE TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITY

Excellent broad look at building a successful team.  The corollaries in our escape rooms are unmistakeable:


This recent article of How to Build a Successful Team in the New York Times makes clear why escape rooms fit so perfectly a successful team building activity:

  • We have a clear and visible goal (save the world, escape) that everyone knows
  • There are clear, but broad rules of behavior - look, but do not destroy; say what you're thinking and listen; we're in this together
  • Everyone's ideas need to be respected - since our rooms pull from a Multiple Intelligences theory, it is critical to get perspectives and insights from everyone to succeed
  • Everyone needs to deliver - your team cannot succeed based on a single person doing.  Solving puzzles take different physical as well as intellectual skills; some flatly will require multiple parties
  • Communication is critical - we're all in the same room, so the miscommunication common to emails, texts, etc; go by the wayside.

Escape Rooms are the most cost and personnel efficient kickoff, wall breaking down and re-socializing method of Team Building activities. 

And they are incredibly fun!
