Why You Should Add Team-building to Your Agenda
Did you know adding movement to your agenda can be good for your meetings?
An increased flow of oxygen can help clear the mind, aids in creativity and can even boost energy. But beyond that, team-building activities are also a fun way to break the ice. Consider adding a wellness activity to your next destination meeting.
Whether your team is comprised of long-time co-workers or of new business acquaintances, downtime in the form of team-building is beneficial to the health of both your event and your attendees. When you hold your meeting on the Alabama Gulf Coast, you'll find numerous activities to fit the bill for team-building.
Captain for a Day
Well, maybe they aren’t the captain, but a sail aboard Wild Hearts – a 53-foot, open-ocean catamaran – can be an invigorating experience for all. Once the sailboat has entered the Gulf of Mexico in Orange Beach, the crew gives team-building guests a mini-sailing lesson and then lets them take the helm, working together to sail the boat at optimal speeds with Alabama’s white-sand beaches in sight. Lunch or dinner can be arranged aboard the vessel, followed by views of the sun setting on a successful meeting day.
Introduce your team to Orange Beach charter fishing. A four-hour trip is ideal for building camaraderie and an appetite. Challenge team members with fun contests, including Biggest Fish, Most Unusual Fish and others. Most charter captains allow passengers to bring aboard light snacks and refreshments. Top off the trip at a Cook-Your-Catch restaurant where team members can have a chef prepare their catches for dinner.
Golf Gulf Shores
Tee off on one of eight championship golf courses on the Alabama Gulf Coast. It’s easy to arrange a casual golf tournament with meeting attendees, and still be just a short drive from your meeting venue. Play nine holes for a quick pace of play.
