Team building in Calgary: Escape60 and it's benefits
Networking, Socializing & Getting to know each other better - Socializing outside the workplace allows for colleagues to build rapport. Making friends and building on existing relationships is one of the best ways to build a productive team or work environment. As comfort increases so does willingness to work with one another and ultimately overcoming everyday issues become easier. At Escape60 we achieve this not only through game play but having an event venue designated toward having a social gathering or experience. We are the most central location for an escape room in downtown Calgary.
Teamwork & Collaboration
All of our escape room games are designed to work together as one. The main objective is to create a team bonding experience. Furthermore, it blends complementary strengths, builds trust, fosters creativity and learning. Creativity thrives in an environment where people work together on a task. This yields brainstorming ideas and unique perspectives - collaborating as a group with different view points and backgrounds will help in achieving the task of escaping the room. Your team will be proud to work together and have a wider sense of ownership, teammates will feel a sense of accomplishment in their contribution while they play.
Escape60 rooms are one of the most effective activities to enhance communication skills. Communication and working well together is a top priority when choosing to participate in a team building event. The reason being because when friendliness and comfortable with one another it will gear towards developing a more positive environment for any team or company. This goes beyond the normative team building activities involving a sheet of paper or a pen in the rooms. we provide the challenge of remembering random objects, verbalizing a list of items as a group by having discussions and listening to audio clips through the experience.
Identify Leaders & Assessing members
In any group activity there will be a particular number of members who act as leaders and help the rest of the team through the objective or task. Escape60 game rooms do a great job of creating a scenario where people are faced with time sensitive and high pressured situation. As time elapses it becomes more clear of who stands out, steps up and takes charge. The most interesting part of the process is you may be surprised sometimes as unexpected leaders emerge from the group.
Escape rooms let team managers and companies see how particular members handle conflict. All people are built different and deal with conflict in their own way. Each escape room is a good catalysts for conflict resolution and testing problem solving skills.
