The phrase 'thinking outside the box' is synonymous with novel, creative thought. It's become both a memorable catchphrase and a cliched way to look at problem solving and it drives a lot of mainstream thought behind team building.
This is why the majority of team building companies craft all kinds of ways to get your group outside their comfort zone and literally outside their workspace (their box).
But what happens if you flip that idea on it's head and challenge teams to think INSIDE the box? Could simply looking at a problem in a new way, collaborating with others, or seeing things from a new perspective be an even MORE effective way to foster team engagement?
Is creative constraint a good thing? YES!
This is how the idea for The Engaging Escape was born. We took the parameters of an Escape Room and found a cool way to bring that experience to teams anywhere - in or out of the office, for a unique team building option that has you looking for answers literally inside the box.
Last month, we had the pleasure of working with 3 groups ranging from 20-100+ take part in our latest and greatest team building activity, and it couldn't have been more successful.
What we've found is that when you look inward for creative solutions, the best parts of our collaborative brains shine in ways we never thought they could. Thinking about problems from different angles, with different perspectives and ideas from your team makes achieving your goal all the more satisfying...and all the more fun.
Here's what one participant had to say:
"The Engaging Escape was an such a fun team building afternoon and all of your team were amazing. So many great comments from our staff about it and the challenge was great.
So next time you want a creative team activity, think INSIDE the box! Contact us today to start crafting your best team building solution. Our feedback the day was amazing, some saying that it was our best staff meeting to date."
