How do you motivate your team? Surrender the ME for the WE! Teamwork makes the dream work! There is no "I" in Team!  While some professional groups adopt a team mantra for inspiration, many more are turning to team building activities to bridge that communication gap. 

Team building activities are an important (and fun) piece in any workplace setting. In a team environment, each individual contributes to the overall success of the group. Each individual has a specific role and as such, a different approach and method to reach that end goal. This results in a wonderful melting pot of styles and personalities.

Seattle Southside is home to several active and engaging team building activity options, perfect for bringing that melting pot together!

From group competition, to outdoor sports, to problem solving, visitors and attendees can engage their senses with a game of laser tag, indoor go-kart racing and more! These out-of-the-box team building activity ideas are engaging and unique, providing your team the tools to successfully navigate communication, productivity and morale issues.
