Your executive team works hard, really hard. So it’s important that you provide fun executive team building activities as a reward, a thank you, and a way to bond and recharge. These five activities will get executives out of the office and in touch with their colleagues.
Sometimes your work might feel like a sinking ship, which means it’s definitely time for some team building. Build trust and get adrenalin racing by rafting with the executive team. American River Recreation has rafting trips on the South Fork, Middle Fork, and North Fork of the American Rive. Or go whitewater river rafting ton the Kaweah River and Merced River. Rafting is a great way to practice communication skills (“ROW!”), support all members of the team and work towards a common goal…because you literally want to keep each other afloat.
Tahoe is a great place to hang on the slopes, but there’s also great ways to get closer as a team with Adventure Associates. GeoTrek and use GPS, maps, and clues to make your way around the trails of South Lake Tahoe or the North Shore and find hidden caches. You’ll compete in small teams against co-workers by day, and then you can celebrate with your whole team and spend time together over drinks in a beautiful Tahoe cabin or hotel later on.
If you’re looking to bond without the distraction of beeping cell phones and emails, head to Camp Navarro, about two and a half hours north of San Francisco. Recreate the summer camp days of your childhood where some of the best team building happened on the climbing wall, around the campfire, and on the archery range. We think if executives spend a few days getting away from the craziness of the office, they’ll get to know each other even better. Plus, isn’t hanging out on a nature hike more tempting than around a boardroom table?
Located just inside the Presidio is the Fort Miley Adventure Challenge Course (FMACC). Your executive team has already climbed the corporate ladder and FMACC gives them a chance to climb something a little more fun-cables and ladders build into the trees. Your executives will work through physical, mental, and emotional challenges that will help the team’s confidence, trust, cooperation, leadership, and support of each other.
Get out of the office and explore San Francisco through with local guides who will take you on a culinary experience of four restaurants with local food and drinks. Our three-hour food and walking tours are a great way to bond with colleagues-especially when you add the wine or cocktail pairings. Many Bay Area companies tell us this at the top of their list for fun executive team building activities Learn the story of North Beach or the Mission with cultural and art stops in between courses.
