Whether you want to organize a team building trip somewhere, or you’ve simply decided to make Mondays more interesting by including some team bonding games in the normal schedule, you’re going to love today’s article. We’ll present 2 games meant to help your team bond.

2 Team Bonding Games to Play with Your Team

1. Purpose Mingle

This is one of the easiest games you can play with your team. Plus, you can easily play it indoors. That way, you don’t have to organize a special event just for the sake of this game. It only takes up to two minutes and you can have any number of participants.

Before a meeting, ask your team members to individually walk around the room and tell as many co-workers as possible what they hope to bring to the meeting. Not only will your employees be more comfortable with each other, but they’ll also get to know each other better. If you want to make things more interesting, you can think of a prize to give to the person who has managed to share their thoughts with the most people. Another great idea would be to offer a prize to the person who actually contributes what they said they hope to as well.

This game will increase productivity during the meeting. That’s because you’re urging employees to actually think about how they want to contribute beforehand. This makes it more likely for them to actually do so.

2. Coin Logo

This is another game that you can play indoors. All you need are some coins that each team member should have. Ask your employees to look for coins in their wallets, purses, and so on. Those that have enough should share with other co-workers that might not have any or have too few. Then, ask the team members to create a personal logo with the help of the coins they have. This should only take one minute.

You can allow them to use other materials when designing the logo, such as a wallet, a pen, or a notebook. If you have too many employees, you can create teams of 3 to 6 people. In this case, they’ll have to create a logo that represents the team. If you have just a few employees, they can all work together and create the logo of the entire organization.

In the case of individual work, everyone will explain their logo to the others. In the case of a team, just the team leader has to do that. The participants have to explain why they chose that logo and what led to its creation, as well as what the logo says about them. This game promotes self-awareness and helps the team get to know each other better.

We hope the 2 quick and easy team bonding games we presented above will help you and your team communicate better and more efficiently.
