Team Building

Many businesses are amazed at what a few hours of interesting and fun team-building activities can do for company morale and production. Helping you plan unique and interesting team-building events is a special interest of Kirkland Event & Destination Services.


Team-building events can take a divisive, highly individualized group of colleagues and mold them into an understanding, compassionate, cohesive whole - a true team! And when team members learn to work together, trouble-shoot together, and help each other, their productivity, and hence profitability, soars.

There are many forms that team-building activities can take. Team-building events can be run as seminars and workshops with something as simple as an inspirational keynote speaker, or they can be planned as an interactive daytime activity such as a scavenger hunt, sand sculpting on the beach, or community involvement. The location of your event will never hinder the possibility of holding team-building activities. They can be incorporated just as easily on-property as they can off-property.


During our years in the hospitality and event planning industry, Kirkland has seen a very diverse selection of successful team-building events. Some examples of advantageous team-building activities are:


•  Team experiences, such as sports, games, and scavenger hunts
•  Environmentally or community friendly activities such as local gardening
•  Role-playing exercises, helping participants learn the hurdles faced by their counterparts, in order to gain a better perspective on their work life
•  Cooperative efforts, like sailing, mural projects, planning teams, and competitions
•  Child's play events, taking participants back to the simpler roots to play the games we grew up on which laid the grounds for future teamwork
•  Activities incorporating company trivia, helping members learn more about the entity they work for, or the entity sponsoring the event






The list of new and exciting teambuilding events grows longer every day, and we continually work to research and bring unique teambuilding events to you. The following are just a few examples of the many benefits from teambuilding:

•  Learning to work together
•  Building trust amongst team members
•  Learning to effectively divide and delegate the workload
•  Understanding each member and their company role more completely
•  Enjoying and appreciating colleagues
•  Learning something about a peer, beyond the “work” personality
•  Learning to work together

The result of teambuilding events is that colleagues and peers return to work energized and with a renewed team spirit that allows them to work together more efficiently, understanding various personalities and the willingness to tackle any problem as a team!
