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.
