You Don't Have To Spend A Fortune On Entertainment

Welcome to my blog. My name is John Maxwell. During the great recession, a lot of my friends found themselves struggling to pay the bills. The idea of spending money on entertainment became unthinkable. But there was a serious consequence to this. My friends saw less of each other. As a result, I went journey to find the most inexpensive or free ways of entertaining friends while still having a great time. Even though the great recession has long since passed, I believe that much of what I learned can still be useful. You can never save enough money on entertainment.

Improve Your Sales Teams Cohesiveness With These Fun Activities

If sales are slacking in your office, and it's a problem with your sales team not working together well, then it is important that you remedy the situation. A sales team that does not communicate well is a sales team that will not succeed. This can end up sinking the company. And it can be very frustrating when you have individual sales members who are talented, but who do not communicate well. The solution to this problem is to build cohesiveness, and team building exercises are the perfect solution.

Obstacle Course

You can borrow from reality shows such as Survivor and have your sales team divide up into two teams and compete against each other. The idea here is to have the team members work together to move through the obstacle course. It might be very physical, such as a rope bridge with a limited number of wooden planks that the team would have to move across the expanse piece by piece, or it could be mental, such as a large puzzle where some members would have to locate pieces and others would be charged with fitting them into place. This style of team building exercise can either be done indoors or outdoor at a facility that has obstacle course style games setup.

Vegas Style Doubles(Or Triples) Poker Tournament

If you don't feel that your sales team is going to benefit from a obstacle course or puzzle environment, and then you can consider a poker tournament. While poker is normally played by individuals against other individuals, there are also doubles events. These are only played tournament style, which is perfect for an afternoon team building exercise. How it will work is you set up a bracket and divide groups into two players. Each player is responsible for playing one "street". In poker parlance, the action is referred to as "Streets". So salesperson A will decide what to do pre-flop, then sales person B will decide what to do on the flop, salesperson A (or C, in the case of a triples event) will act on the turn. You can allow a limited amount for team members to discuss strategy in between streets. And then on the river (the last street) the whole team can decide together what they will do.

Escape The Room

A super fun team building game is escape the room. This is a fun, entertaining event that many people go to just to have some fun, but it is perfect as a team building exercise. The idea is quite simple. A group of people is put into a locked room and then they have to work together to figure how to get out of the room. The solution to opening the door is found by searching the room for clues, and then working together as a team to solve the problem. It's great because it is fun and also promotes a cohesiveness between the sales team. The idea of working together will be reinforced and they will also have a fantastic time. You can find escape the room locations in almost all big cities and they are a blast.
