Where most team building exercises go wrong

For most Team Building Ideas for Canberra Australian Capital Territory businesses the idea may be great, but the execution can leave a lot to be desired. It isn't that the murder mystery or the obstacle course or cabaret follies planned aren't good; it is that the effect gets washed away with how the other aspects of the business gathering are handled. You have two different options when planning the event. The first is to keep it entirely separate from business at all - there are definite advantages and disadvantages to this approach. The second is to be more mindful about how you combine the events so that they support each other better.

Murder mystery parties are popular events for people to go do outside of work. If you make yours open to spouses and partners, you could very well have a hit on your hands and benefit from the association.

Option 2 - Combine it with business

This is trickier to get to work if you are sending your employees sailing down a zip line or up and over a tower. There is too much of a disconnect between the team building event and the work event. The dynamics of the two will also remain separate. The murder mystery is a better choice because it is expected that during a day of meetings the group will have to eat. Even if you choose to host your murder mystery on a cruise, you can use the conference or dining area for your meetings. You don't want to blend the mystery in with the meetings, but to make it the cap of the day. It will serve as a marvellous release for the tensions of the day - but it will also make everything that happened as part of the meetings more memorable.
