The phrase 'team building' seems to inspire groans and eye rolling amongst most people I know, but it doesn't have to be like that! Team building can be so fun and is really a great way to get to know your colleaugues and build better working relationships.
There are plenty of companies out there providing team building activites, however you don't need to get all fancy to organise your own team building sessions. Pubs all around Auckland run quiz nights that are really fun to get involved in and there's nothing like a bit of healthy competition to generate a good laugh and give you the chance to learn more about the people you work with.
Cocktail making sessions is another fun activity. Book a private room at a bar and ask the bar tenders to help you with planning. Give your team a list of ingredients they will be able to use, get them to create their own cocktails and then make them. A relaxed setting and a few drinks will bring everyone together for a thoroughly enjoyable time.
