Team Building the Exeter Chiefs Way....

An interesting take on team building in the UK with the Exeter Chiefs (not being that sporty, we can only assume that the Chiefs are some sort of soccer... ahem... we mean "football" team). It just goes to show that there are all sorts of team building activities and techniques out there. And in our humble opinion, not all of them were created equal.

The Exeter Chiefs day started out familiar enough with the teams having to discover clues and solve some puzzles to discover a secret four-digit code, but from there on the day's events took, at least for us, an unusual turn. The teams then unchained and had to pull a Land Rover down a course, did some archery target practices, followed by some clay pigeon shooting, and finally got to take part in some "driving exercises while blindfolded."

Apparently the day was a great success, despite at least one blindfolded driver careening into a ditch, and the day left the team "feeling good" and "really helped grow the team morale." (Although being Americans, we're not sure what one of the players meant by being "pretty chuffed" with himself... hmmm.)

It just goes to show that no matter what sort of team you have there is a team building activity that is perfect for you and your crew. And we'd be remiss if we didn't mention it, we're confident that we that perfect event already waiting for you... although in the interest of full disclosure, no Run Brain Run game is going to require you to tow a Land Rover, or fire shotguns, or drive blindfolded (much to our insurance agent's relief), or even get "pretty chuffed," whatever that is.
