Group activities that give back
If you’re trying to find fun group activity ideas and worried you can’t please all of the people all of the time, guess what?
PowerProv improv workshops are perfect for groups of diverse people with different skills and personalities.
Worried some members of your team might not love the idea of an improv workshop?
The reality is 100% of the time the people you are most worried about are the people who enjoy it most.
PowerProv group activities = Team transformation
In every group we run, the people who have the biggest transformation are the people who started off thinking it would be a waste of time.
The ones who come in reluctantly, convinced that what we do won’t relate to their work, or freaking out that they might have to be funny, become our biggest fans.
Because the journey from “I don’t want to do this” to “I’m so glad I did this” is a lot longer than the journey people who were excited in the first place take.
But both types end up in the same place: Gladwedidthisville.
The best group activity for making your group better
The best group activities are beneficial and fun for everyone, but it can be hard to find something that matches everyone’s interests.
- Gin tasting? What about the non-drinkers?
- Axe throwing? Will your insurance cover that?
- Lawn bowling? Snore?
So what’s a good option? PowerProv improv training!
“But what about the shy people?” you ask. Improv training is one of the best group activities because it makes everyone want to participate.
There’s never any pressure to be funny or perform. Just be yourself and support each other and let your expert Facilitator and our proven program design take care of the rest.
Our workshops deliver skills, tools, and techniques that are beneficial for everyone and anyone, and they’re super fun too.
Group activities FAQ
What is the purpose of group activities?
Group activities can be effective for motivating staff, encouraging active learning, and developing key critical thinking, communication, and decision-making skills.
Of course, depending on what you choose, they can also be a great way to make sure someone ends up with a hangover.
One of the things we consistently observe in PowerProv workshops is how groups leave more bonded than when they arrived.
This is due in part to the behavioural science in our program design, the ensemble mindset we instil, and the safe space we create.
This allows everyone to relax, be present, and most of all, be authentic.
How do group activities help behaviour?
If you have team members who don’t participate, never chime in or contribute, we can help get them feeling more comfortable and confident to do so.
But one of the most magical things we do is make it easy for everyone to have each other’s backs.
To support each other’s ideas, actions, choices, and decisions.
To always make each other look good.
And to embrace failure as the opportunity for growth and learning that it is. Without blame.
If you could come to work every day knowing, trusting, and believing that your entire team has your back and will make you look good no matter what, that would feel pretty amazing right?
And it would probably be a job you’d never want to leave.
Are group activities worth the investment?
Generally speaking, yes.
But if you take everyone to the pub, put a credit card behind the bar, and then expect everyone to be 100% the next day, then maybe, no.
With PowerProv’s workshops, you get the best of both worlds.
You get to do something fun your entire team will enjoy and endow them with new communication and collaboration skills.
And of course, there’s the whole improved camaraderie thing too. Hangover optional.
