It’s often said that a company or corporate organization is only as good as its weakest link, so it’s important that you have the strongest team possible. There are many ways to make your team great, from holding a conference or bringing in a guest speaker to increase professional development. You can also plan a game or other bonding activity. Even a good dinner can help strengthen a group.
Skyline Cruises Gives You a Spectacular Backdrop for Your Corporate Event
There are lots of directions you can go in. But if you’re looking for somewhere to host your team building activities, you should consider holding your event with Skyline Cruises. We’ll give you a spectacular backdrop for your function. We also want to give you some tips for corporate team building.
If you’re in charge of planning a corporate team building event, your first decision is to decide what constitutes team building. That’s not always clearly defined, according to US News and World Report. There’s such a wide variety of team building activities out there, that defining team building is extremely subjective, but there are some common denominators.
Coming Up with Team Building Activities
“A team-building activity is any positive, shared experience that reinforces positive, team skills,” David Jacobson, founder of the team-building company TrivWorks told US News. “It has to have some form of structure and someone who has put it together with clearly defined goals. Some of those goals might involve improving your employees’ relationships with each other, or a desire to teach new skills to team members.”
The next step is determining what type of team building exercises to choose. The website team building made easy makes several suggestions for team building exercises you can combine with a conference and dinner. Among them are holding a casino night with team members, answering questions to get chips. A trivia contest or a murder mystery dinner where each employee is encouraged to dress as a character from the mystery also work well.
The Skyline Princess is Your Perfect Team Building Venue
Our ship, the Skyline Princess, is the perfect venue for exercises like this. It’s a climate-controlled three deck ship. So you can have dinner on one deck and the conference, casino or a trivia contest on another deck. Please note, that we’re expecting renovations to be done at our home port located at the World’s Fair Marina in Queens during the first quarter of 2017. Please check with Skyline for more information and the location of your departure.
In addition to having the space to provide you for your team building exercise, we also have great dinner packages served by our onboard cook and staff. Your team will pass by some of the most iconic sites in the world as you sail on the East River to get spectacular views of the Manhattan Skyline. You’ll see it all from the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower to the Brooklyn Bridge and the most iconic site of all, the Statue of Liberty. We suggest doing your corporate events in the middle of the week so you don’t bring your employees in on a day off.
And Skyline handles all sorts of events from celebrations like weddings and bar or bat mitzvahs to graduation parties and reunions. Whether you are team building or sightseeing, there’s a Skyline Cruise for you. Contact us today!
