Groups, sections, units or departments need time to consolidate, motivate, innovate, learn and have a good time. A Teambuilding day, an Away Day or whichever name is chosen is a very useful tool for this.

A teambuilding day should always be designed together with the key stakeholders and tailored to the present needs. An example of a general layout could be:

  • Welcome and warm up exercise
  • Content work e.g. on the group’s image, conflicts in the group, type differences, communication structures, workshops on specific topics
  • Lunch and some active start of the afternoon
  • Content work e.g. on how the findings from the morning can be implemented/integrated in the groups daily work
  • Ending the day with an inclusive exercise

It is important to pay attention to venue, atmosphere, planning and introduction of the day when designing the day.
