During the meeting, the group can discuss what is working and what is not. Groups keep track of these observations on a Delta/Plus worksheet.

Charity Project Options

Short Projects

1.5 hour event

These items are quicker to build because they are smaller, or have fewer parts to put together. A good option for a team that has a shorter agenda, or just wants to have a fun charity team building activity.

Teams of 5-7 ppl.

  • Small doll house or play set
  • Wagons
  • Birdhouses

Medium Projects

2-2.5 hour event

The toys in this category look great, and are moderately difficult to assemble. They offer a moderate opportunity for seeing the effect of improving teamwork skills and breaking down silos.

Teams of 6-8 ppl.

  • Medium doll house or play set
  • Trainsets & tables (small)
  • Play tables

Long Projects

3-3.5 hour event

These projects are more involved. This allows for more team interaction, and greater lessons learned from the activity. There is also a greater sense of accomplishment when finished.

Teams of 8-11 ppl.

  • Trainsets & Tables(large)
  • Large Doll House
  • Children’s Furniture
  • Beehives

Welcome to the world of corporate espionage! In today’s highly competitive and international business climate, information is the most valuable resource a company has. Your team of crack investigators is hot on the heels of a group of nefarious hackers who have made off with incredibly sensitive information, and have hidden it all over the world. Soon they will sell this information to the highest bidder. Your team has managed to confiscate a briefcase from one of the spies, your first major break in the case. Now all you have to do is figure out how to get into it, and then decipher the encrypted information within it in order to access the various locks, files and websites that have been utilized. But the hackers are on their way back, and you only have 90 minutes to unlock as many files as you can, and still get out of the room.

one hour team building activity with clock on screen

Quick and to-the-point individual activities
for break-out sessions, energizers and more.

Sometimes there just isn’t enough time for a full team building session. If you have 30 to 90 minutes to fill and want to make a strong point or just let your group unwind during a big meeting, we can deliver a tailored activity that will get everyone involved, thinking, and having fun.

Warm-Ups (5-10 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff lead some fun warm-up activities that get the group moving and ready to fully participate.

Team-Up (2-5 minutes) If the group is not already split into teams, we lead a fun game to randomly sort participants into teams. This is also a good idea if the group has been sitting at the same tables for an extended time.

Team Challenge (30-45 minutes) Teams are given instructions and materials for the activity. During the activity, Atlanta Challenge staff are available for questions and will take pictures. Select from several activity options.

Talking Points (5-15 minutes) The team is provided with a hardcopy of a simple model for utilizing the skill set behind the main theme of the activity you select.

Team Review (5-10 minutes) The team shares their observations about how they performed, and how to apply those lessons to specific situations faced on the job.

PERSONAL ACTION PLAN

Turning intentions into reality
What are participants going to do differently on their re- turn to the office? What is the one thing they can do that will have a positive impact, no matter how small?

We have many more options available, and we can build custom activities.

Welcome & Warm-Ups (5 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff welcome the participants and give a quick overview of the event. We then lead some fun warm-up activities that also randomly create small teams.

Team-Up (5-10 minutes) If the group is not already split into teams, we conduct a fun, light-activity game to randomly sort participants into teams.

Introduction & Instructions (5 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff explain the rules for the game, and facilitators distribute answer sheets and other program materials to every team. Each team selects a secretary to write their answers.

The Game (1-2 hours) The group works within their table- teams to earn the highest score by answering a series of trivia questions, solving team challenges, and deciphering brainteasers.

Sample on-screen challenges:

  • Trivia Round: Teams are given 5 seconds per question to come up with their answers, and 30 seconds at the end of the 10-question series, giving them a chance to strategize how they will get the best answers.
  • Music Round: Teams try to name the artist and/or song title performed in the 5 second sample.
  • Photo Round: Teams correctly identify the item, person or place in the slideshow, but the pictures can be tricky, and they are not displayed for very long.
  • How Many?: Teams guess the correct amount of items in a picture, earning points based on how close their answers are.

Sample table-top games:

  • Scramble: Teams are given a packet of cards with one word on each card. They race against the clock to create as many compound words as they can.
  • Show Me: Like a scavenger hunt, but backwards. The MC calls out an item and each team scrambles to find that item within their team, then runs to show it to the MC or an assistant.
  • Sugar Rush: Teams answer questions about popular candy brands, but rather than earn points, they are immediately showered with candy when they answer correctly. Always a great grand finale to the event.

Scoring & Prizes (5 minutes) We announce team scores from bottom to top, recognize the winning team and hand out prizes if made available by client.

Wrap-Up (2 minutes) A thank-you to the group, team picture if appropriate, and any announcements the group needs before breaking.

Murder mystery team building characters

Atlanta Challenge provides the Facilitator / Narrator to lead the murder mystery team building game, props for participant-characters, clue and trivia packets, and other program materials. The Atlanta Challenge Facilitator coaches the characters on their duties before the program starts. The characters do not know who the villain is, even if it is their character, so they can be fully engaged participants. For the most fun and best fit to the story line, the “victim” is the highest level person in the group. The table-teams for solving the mystery can be assigned in advance, or randomly upon arrival.

  • Prior to the start of the program, the 9 participant characters are given a quick orientation to the program and how to fulfill their parts. There is nothing to memorize, so being a character is stress-free.
  • Upon arrival, each table-team receives an introduction to the murder mystery team building and their first challenges.
  • The primary characters are introduced and the stage is set for the mystery.
  • Just after your first course is served, the guests witness the murder, but there may be more…
  • Between each course of the meal, the mystery continues to unfold with more dramatic action and clues that will lead to the mystery’s conclusion.
  • Before desert, each team makes their accusations and provides their analysis of what happened.
  • The solution is dramatically revealed around the time dessert is served.
  • The facilitator announces the winning team—the one that solved the mystery and earned the most points in the team challenges.
  • The program ends with a brief discussion on team work (when appropriate), acknowledgement of your team characters, and bringing up the cast for a picture and round of appreciative applause.
