Team Building Activities We Did For Silver Dragon Construction, Lumber, and Glass Supply in Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, Philippines

Before Cebu Teambuilding Facilitators Network founder Thadz Engaling left to migrate to the United States of America, he accompanied two (2) facilitators to a business trip to Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, Philippines in late May 2016 to facilitate a team building program for leaders of Silver Dragon Construction, Lumber, and Glass Supply. The event was held at the company owners' rest house along the beach in Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, Philippines. The theme of the activity was "Monitoring and Measurement + Ownership = Success". It was attended by some fifty (50) participants.

Following were the activities they did for one of Negros Island Region's biggest construction companies:

Worlds' Records

As a getting to know activity, an activity called World's Records was employed. Participants were asked to arrange themselves according to categories identified by facilitators such as birthdays, shoe sizes, number of romantic relationships, etc. After each round, each participant finds that he or she is beside another pair of persons and are given the opportunity to get to know better the persons beside them.

Helium Ring 

An activity that lets participants become aware of their team dynamics, this exercise allows participants to build on their team strengths and work on areas where improvement is needed.

Ball Game 

Also referred to as warp speed, this activity tests the participants resolve to improve the status quo. Too often, people settle with how things have been done for the longest time unless we provide them the right challenge to improve how things are done.

Minefield

One of the activities that participants really had fun with was the minefield activity, an activity that relied heavily on trust and effective communication. The mechanics were to have people with closed eyes cross an obstacle-laden area through the instructions of their colleagues.
