Build a Bridge Team Building
Build a Bridge
How well do your team members communicate with one another?
Poor communication lies at the root of many team problems. It can lead to mistakes, quality problems, conflict, missed deadlines, and lost opportunities. That's why it can often pay to help people develop their in-team communication skills.
One way of doing this is to use interactive team-building activities. Not only can these boost people's communication skills, but they can also help them build good relationships with one another.
In this activity, two teams must work together to build a bridge using materials that we supply. They each build half of the bridge and then "connect" the two pieces to make a complete one, made up of two similar designs.
The activity is challenging because the room is divided: no team is able to see how the other constructs its bridge. Teams have to communicate verbally through a sheet or tarpaulin that divides the room, as they work.
The Build a Bridge activity strengthens communication skills because each team has to discuss ideas and brainstorm ways to use their materials to build half a bridge. In addition, this activity improves group problem solving and creative thinking. You can also use it to develop people's leadership skills if you decide to elect a team leader for each group, or if people naturally take the lead.
