Benefits Of Adventure Activities For Corporate Groups

January 24, 2017 • Edna Lyles

Many corporate groups are opting to take up adventure trips more and more these days. While these trips might include luxury stays and weekend trips to exciting destinations, these can also work as successful ways to build greater synergy among the individuals in a workplace setting. When adventure trips are planned, there are several uncertainties and adrenaline pumping situations that might arise which can get people together in a way no corporate setting can achieve

Developing a sense of trust

Many event organizers or trainers are designing novel training programs that are camouflaged as natural treks or trips to different natural landscapes. The aim of these programs is to throw the individuals of a group out of their familiar corporate or city surroundings. When they are forced to camp and stay outdoors and trek through difficult terrain, they are forced to depend on each other for basic survival requirements. This helps to bring team members closer and to get to know each other in ways that no in office team building activities Coffs Harbour could.

Thinking as a team

There are many adventure trips that involve whitewater rafting or rock climbing activities. These are arranged by experienced trainers and with appropriate guidance and support given to the participants. Usually groups who are put together in difficult situations in these cases are pushed to depend on each other, think on their feet and collaborate. Often, competitive events are also staged in such situations. Though they are meant to be fun activities, the outcome of such events pushes people to work together as a team and be competitive in a fast paced or uncertain environment. Many experienced team building Sydney organizers has the expertise to put the teams through such activities that might look scary but they are safe, fun and exhilarating as well.

Higher synergy levels

Whenever corporate groups are taken for adventure trips, an inevitable outcome is greater synergy levels among these groups. Everyone in the team comes to know each other in their natural elements. When the trips are organized in the wilderness where outdoor camping is required and people need to participate in different activities, diverse skills, shortcomings and other aspects of the personalities of different individuals are discovered. In a casual and non competitive environment people are more at ease and they get to know each other in their real selves. This helps ease tensions that might have developed in the work sphere. Groups who participate in outdoor activities usually end up being more familiar and relaxed around each other, even back in an office setting.

Tips On How To Spend Your “Profit Money” For The Benefit Of The Whole Family

January 10, 2017 • Edna Lyles

There comes a time in everyone’s life, where all your hard work, the yearlong grind, finally gets its deserved rewards. Be it in the form of a pay check, a promotion, or even a lottery prize; you get more than what you may need at present. While we’re sure you’ll be holding on to most of it for “a rainy day”, at least part of it is going to be considered “luxury cash”. This is the money through which you satisfy your indulgences.

If you want to spend this time’s money on your whole family; then look no further for ideas on how to spend it. Here are our suggestions.

For a more active and healthier life

Having good health is vital. But with the busy lives and our overflowing schedules, exercising and working out is almost impossible. This is true even in the case of children. With the profit money that you’ve made, consider installing a home gym for the family and yourself. If your family already has one, you can “update” your gym equipment. And as we live in the age of electronics, let’s not forget that active VR games are also considered “exercising” …! 

A mode of transport

It’s time to give that family vehicle an up do. Better seats, better audio system, better AC unit…you make the choice on how you want to upgrade it. You might even opt to simply give it a shiny new paint job. Apart from that, if your family enjoys camping and the outdoors, you might even consider buying your own caravan; giving you the excuse to take frequent trips in the future. And don’t forget to add racing bike to your list of “hot wheels” as well!

Improving your home’s entertainment

If the thought of buying kids mountain bikes is giving you a headache; then chances are that you’re more an indoors-y person. And no doubt, this means you and your family spend a great deal of time in front of your entertainment unit. In this case, why not use your money to improve said entertainment system? A better TV, a better (surrounding) sound system or even getting your TV room more comfy seating arrangements; any of these can be a great way to spend your money.

A break from it all

It’s normal that families now-a-days don’t get to spend a lot of time together—or away from home together. Holidays are almost a thing of the past and our busy schedules are to blame. Use the money; your reward for sacrificing countless hours away from your home and family, to take them on a holiday. It’ll give your family time to bond, and rejuvenate from the stress that day-to-day living brings to our lives…
