While team building differs for every group (big or small, young or old), each client has certain goals their group has set out to complete. “Some groups may look to accomplish a task while other groups are looking to bring a team closer together,” says Shields. “Also, time constraints vary for groups. They may do a meeting in the morning and team build in the afternoon, while others may have only an hour or two to engage in team bonding activities.”


Peddler’s Village offers murder mystery luncheons and dinners at Cock’ n Bull restaurant, and an adult playground at its Giggleberry Fair attraction. “Also, some of our merchants offer culinary team building through food (Sweet Occasions), beer pairings and tastings (Free Will), spirits tastings (Hewn Spirits), and terrarium building (Greenology),” Shields continues. “We also have organized scavenger hunts for groups throughout our 42 beautiful acres.”


“We learn a lot from our guests, often by observation in addition to their direct feedback,” says Ted Davis, chief sales and marketing officer for Benchmark Hospitality.


He notes that culinary team building just gets more popular every year. Whether in the kitchen with the chefs learning about flavor balancing and fermentation, at the bar with mixolo- gists, in the dining room at the table, or outside for a picnic-like experience. Bringing groups together interactively and family-style as a culinary team is red hot, he says. But planners also are looking for entertainment to be includ- ed in team building, so learning needs to be not only instructive and flavorful, but also great fun.


“Examples are lip sync battles, live interactive dinner shows, wildlife tours, hiking excursions, skiing, mountain bik- ing, petting zoos and go-cart races on property... anything that, in an enter-


taining way, teaches new life skills that can be used at the office and home. Planners today increasingly desire to enhance the lives - and life skills - of the ‘whole’ person,” explains Davis.


Creative team building can be an integral part of enhancing a group outing, meeting or training session, but also can have long lasting benefits that extend well beyond the session itself.


Finding creative ways to get peo- ple working together and inter- acting with each other can have great benefits that form lasting bonds and ultimately improve the quality of working and interper- sonal relationships back at the office in meaningful - and often increasingly productive - ways.
