The top team building games in Kansas City
In our experience, these top 7 team building activities in Kansas City are a surefire way to hit it out of the Park during your next corporate event solution—
That heart-wrenching moment when you pull out a Jenga tile and place it at the top of the stack? There’s no other terror quite like it. 😂 Giant Jenga is a great opportunity to let out your playful side with your co-workers and show off your personality more than you would in an office setting… and not to mention, your gravity-defying jenga skills.
Escape Room Challenges
Escape rooms are quickly becoming one of the best team building ideas for small corporate groups in Kansas City. Our escape room challenges require teams work together to solve a common problem—not unlike in the office!
Ping Pong is the perfect excuse to make a bracket and make a bet that the new guy will most certainly beat the CEO. Team up against your cubicle-mates for endless ping-pong fun at Paradise Park!
Capture the Flag (laser tag style!)
Forget traditional capture the flag on a soccer field at recess; grown-ups know where its at: the laser tag arena! Build your team, strategize, and capture those flags. 💪
Mini golf? Seems more like an awkward first date than a team bonding activity when you first hear it. But think about it… Trash talking your boss and co-workers in a completely controlled environment? You don’t get that opportunity every day. #TakeThatDave
Sometimes, the most simple team building activities in Kansas City work best for team bonding efforts. Imagine propelling your body down a field in a potato sack alongside Brenda from accounting. There’s no way you’re not cracking a smile at that!
Short Team Building Activities
Sometimes an activity can be as simple as a conversation. Read on to hear more about the best team building activities in Kansas City and across the country.
5-minute team building activities
If you’re not quite ready for a Paradise Park visit and are looking for something quick and easy to start your workday off right, there are tons of 5-minute team building activities in Kansas City you can implement into your daily routine. By starting your day with a team building activity, you can establish a positive outlook on the day (and tasks) ahead of you and your team.
Some of the easiest 5-minute team building activities involve team building questions. No materials required! It really is incredible how much of a difference one question can make in the days of your Kansas City corporate team.
The best team building questions for Kansas City corporate teams
Most consider team building questions as icebreakers; however, try thinking of team building questions as more than that. By asking meaningful, thought-provoking questions, you can quickly and more deeply interact with your employees and tackle tough topics or emotions that naturally occur in a typical corporate workplace: burnout, dread, resentment, and more.
Getting these thoughts and questions out in the open can help your employees vent in a healthy and productive way and allow them to begin their day with a fresh mind.
Here are some of our favorite team building questions—
- Reflect on a quote, such as “None of us is as smart as all of us.” (Ken Blanchard) or “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” (George Bernard Shaw… and one of our favorites!)
- How will you achieve your goals today?
- How can someone else help you achieve your tasks today?
- What does success look like for our team?
- How do you want to feel when you leave the office today?
- Which company value do you most identify with and why?
- What’s the most meaningful part of your job?
- If you had an extra hour today, what would you do with it? (Work related or not)
Keep the questions central to the day at hand—going “big picture” in a 5-minute meeting probably won’t get you very far.
That said, if you believe that laughter is the best way to break the ice and start your day (like we do!) you can always try some fun team building questions like—
- What’s your go-to prank?
- What was your favorite board game as a child?
- [Insert infinite “Would you rather” questions here]
- What’s your best dance move? Prove it!
- What game do you most love to win, and most hate to lose?
- If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
When you’ve exhausted all of these team building questions, that’s when you know it’s time to visit Paradise Park for a corporate event. 😉
