Top 5 Team Building
Top 5 Team Building Activities for The Gold Coast
Queensland's sunny Gold Coast region is simply a wonderful destination to conduct a team building or team development event for a staff retreat, conference or meeting. The Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach CBD and surrounding areas are large enough to have a sophisticated city vibe, yet small and intimate enough to retain a resort style charm. The recent Commonwealth Games also added quite the buzz to the already energetic vibe of the city. There is also the stunning beauty of the Gold Coast Hinterland with Lamington National Park, Springbrook, Mudgeeraba and Numinbah. World-class rainforests and parks that can also be suitable for the right team building ideas. Plenty of great locations exist away from the coastal regions of the Gold Coast.
As for designing and delivering team building events for The Gold Coast, well there’s really so many event styles and formats that can suit, but to pick the recent “Top 5” was quite a tricky task. Client’s can choose from a great mix of indoor and outdoor challenges, and the current Top 5 is a reflection of this.
1 - The Gold Coast Quest
Whilst having the “out and about” elements of an Amazing Race style of team build the Quest is more sophisticated and just not as clichéd as the reality TV knock-offs (although we do have those as well if you prefer them). Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach precincts, can be perfect locations to site team challenges and tasks of myriad styles as part of a Quest. We have also designed Quests to incorporate Resort areas and The Spit or the Gold Coast Hinterland region.
2 - Picture Perfect
This is a team building approach oriented towards a common outcome and cross-functional collaboration. Simply one of the best indoor conference activities there is, it can work in virtually any Gold Coast meeting venue. Whilst painting is the medium, you don’t have to be a Picasso to make it work, it’s more about collaboration, communication and seeing the ‘bigger picture’ together. The completed masterpiece is a lasting reminder of what the team can do when they pull together, and looks great on office and boardroom walls.
3 - The Agency
Making your own TV Ads, short films and versions of famous movies can be a lot of laughs, and also a bit of a ‘Trojan Horse’ for injecting key business themes and issues. As a team building option for The Gold Coast, it’s also well suited to the Brisbane environment where novel locations in which to film simply abound. Using your Gold Coast hotel or conference venue as the base, teams head out to make their scripts and story boards become a reality in a real time project that will be remembered for years.
4 - Team DNA / Leadership DNA
This format actually transcends the usual team building approaches by making use of behavioural profiles and tailored workshops as a prelude to any activity. We use the Belbin Team Role Model for its individual and team reports that give great insight into a team’s strengths and weaknesses. If you are looking for team building on The Gold Coast that gives truly lasting value, this is the one to pick.
5 - Battlespace
This is a sophisticated indoor business game with a military theme that can impart tremendous insight to any team about how they operate. It can work well stand alone, or in tandem with our Team DNA approach h to add greater depth and insight. As a potential team building solution for a Gold Coast meeting, it is easy to deploy this activity in any hotel or venue conference room. Teams need to operate cross-functionally as a command decision-making team to make optimal and profitable use of time, resources and their people to win.
In a nutshell, Brisbane is a great place to undertake some tailored team building and whilst we have suggested these as our current ‘Top5 Team Building Options for Brisbane’ based on recent demand, we have so many more to choose from also.
