  2. 2. Brought To You By http://teambuildingactivitieshq.comIt has been said that the best way to motivate a group is to lead them.If you are struggling to motivate the people working for you, or thosewho are part of your team, there are some great ways to rectify that.When you break your team down into smaller groups it can be easier towork. As a large group can be hard to control and you may lose some ofthe people in the “shuffle” The best way to do team building exercisesfor small groups is to build a sense of team spirit.The best way to build team spirit is to create a team that feels united.You can do this by choosing team colors or team crests. You can alsolet each team create a cheer or a name, all of these things will makethe team feel united against the others.Another “must do” when it comes to working with small groups is tochose people who do not know each other very well to work together.This will allow the team to meet and bond with people they may havenot otherwise known. When people are already close, it defeats thepurpose of a team building exercise.Some ideas you can use, when putting together activities for smallgroups are:Create an issue: The team leader can create a mock issue. This can bework related or not. Put people in groups of 3 or 4 and let each grouptry to solve the problem. Each group must choose a leader and thatleader must delegate the group. This can help a team work togetherduring crisis and bond over an issue.All Rights Reserved © 2011 Team Building Activities HQ http://teambuildingactivitieshq.com
  3. 3. Brought To You By http://teambuildingactivitieshq.comCreate a Person: Each group of 3 or 4 gets a long piece of paper. Thefirst person draws the head (not allowing others to see), then folds thedrawing over so the next artist cannot seethe head. The next person draws the neck, folds the paper, and passesit on. Ineach instance drawings are folded over so no one will know what theend resultlooks like. The last person puts a name on it. When the folded paper isopened,roars of laughter follow. Groups can share drawings.Games: Outdoor games require partners and small groups; each smallgroup can try to complete courses and events before the other.Friendly group competition will bond the group and make them feelcloser to one another. Again it is important to pair and group peopletogether who are not already close.Dividing the team into small teams and partners is the best way tocreate stronger bonds. If you know certain people have issues you maywant to pair them together. Perhaps they will find a way to workthrough any issues. Part of being a team means being able to resolveand deflect conflict. Each team member will have to learn how toproperly do this in order to be a good team player.All Rights Reserved © 2011 Team Building Activities HQ http://teambuildingactivitieshq.com
