How your business can benefit from escape room team building
Escape room team building is a new trend that’s quickly catching on. If you are not familiar with escape rooms, they are immersive role-playing games where teams are “locked” inside a themed room and tasked with solving the room’s mystery within a set amount of time, usually 60 minutes. They may need to decipher secret messages, find keys or figure out codes that open hidden compartments or doors. Once they solve the mystery and escape or reach the end of the time limit, they are “set free.”
Plato once said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” Escape Rooms give teams the opportunity to get out of the office and work and play together to complete a common task. Team members are required to work together and communicate in order to reach a shared goal. Without the distractions of phones and outside interactions, people really get to know their teammates and discover more about them. People not only find out about the strengths and weaknesses of their teammates but also of their own qualities that they bring to the team. These qualities all transfer back to the workplace plus you have some fun memories to look back on as a team.”
The Benefits of Escape Room Team Building
Communication – Our escape room requires team members to communicate in an unusual environment where multiple clues and solutions are constantly being found and need to be shared and examined. It’s a great way to see how well they communicate with each other especially when under pressure.
Leadership – Natural leaders often stand out in escape room scenarios as they help the team keep track of clues that haven’t been solved yet, make connections between seemingly unrelated discoveries and by boosting morale as the deadline creeps closer. When faced with tasks that require cooperation, leaders are frequently the ones providing guidance to each participant. You may be surprised to see who has the potential to become a good leader.
Collaboration – You may think it goes without saying but one of the biggest skills linked to team building is collaboration. Our escape room puzzles are designed to encourage team members to work together in new and unique ways.
Strengths and Weaknesses – Escape rooms can reveal the strengths and weaknesses of the individuals in the team and of the team as a whole. Escape room team building allows each member of the team to discover his or her own unique strengths and utilise them in a fun and safe environment. Our puzzles are so different from the usual problems at the workplace you might to see a whole new side to your employees.
Lateral Thinking – Team members need to respect the way others think and to be open to suggestions. Our puzzles require team members to think outside of the box and to use their imagination to look at problems in a fresh way and come up with solution. We encourage team members to be bold and to share whatever ideas they may have to unlock the lock or crack the code.
