The competitive nature of people is especially strong in the legal professions. Lawyers love to compete against each other and their staffs draw upon that competitive nature as well. There is a great amount of pride as everyone struggles to achieve Alpha status regardless of the actual prizes being provided. Through fun and goofy competitions the people bond and create memorable moments.
A mini-Olympiad designed for our law firm is a great way to have a team building activity while not having the participants feel like they are being forced to participate in a bonding event. People tend to resent being forced to team build, but they love to compete with one another. We engage that competitive spirit without them realizing what they are learning.
Each activity in the mini-Olympiad for a law firm is selected to work on a set of bonding needs. The activities are not generally like an Olympics. There's no running, high jumping or other such risky activities. The games tend to be more goofy in nature and are designed to get the people to bond over the silliness as well as the competitiveness.
An example of games may have competitors putting Oreo cookies on their foreheads and trying to move them down their face and into their mouths without touching it with their hands. Another may be building paper airplanes and flying them for accuracy and distance. Another may be relay races using candy canes. We can engage in games of Paper Basketball. Others may be a variety of puzzles and brain teasers. We consult with your team to come up with a variety of games that would engage the people and keep them enjoying the competition while improving employee relations.
We have alternate games involving more office equipment. It might include making copies, stringing paper clips together, stapling papers, collating, etc. These games are considered an Office Olympiad. We can also combine elements of both if you prefer.
Each team conducts an activity around a room. They then rotate through the activities, kind of like Speed Dating, until they have done all the activities. Our team then quickly tabulates the scores and presents prizes to the winning team. We don't usually reveal the final scores as we don't want the lower scoring teams to feel embarrassed.
Contact us to consult on how a mini-Olympiad might be the right choice for your law firm. The team building benefits creates bonding that can last for a long time after the event. We look forward to hearing from you.
