A lot goes into having a strong and successful team. In order to have a strong non-profit team, team members need to know how to create and achieve collaborative goals, work out issues, and respect each other. Success is dependent on the team and its people. Team building activities can bring people together from all departments of a non-profit organization. An escape room provides an opportunity for employees to learn more about other members of the team, such as their problem-solving skills, communication style, interests, etc., in a fun and exciting informal setting.
Challenges Faced by Non-Profit Teams:
- Inability to see the big picture
- Lack of shared goals, values or priorities
- No accountability or performance check
- Ineffective communication
- Differences are not understood or valued
With a good team building experience, a team can learn how to put the pieces of the team together to fit perfectly and work like a well-oiled machine. Placing your staff in an escape room with people they don’t normally interact with or people they see every day is a great way to jump start building you’re A team.
