We are blessed to live in a beautiful city that has so many outdoor spaces available for team building activities in Colorado Springs.
As the residents of Colorado Springs know when the weather turns, and the cold breeze moves in, finding indoor events can be challenging.
That is why Locked In Escapes has organized a great place to bring your employees for corporate team building activities in Colorado Springs. Now you can excite your team with a new, interactive team-building experience!
Escape rooms are a great way to practice teamwork and communication amongst peers. Employees, staff, and faculty must be working in harmony to achieve their goals. Integrating a fun and challenging team-building experience may be just what your organization needs.
Indoor Team Building Activities
Finding indoor team building activities for employees in Colorado Springs can be difficult in the fall, winter, and spring seasons. The random snowstorms and frigid air make outdoor team building events challenging. For some, a ski trip or snowshoeing outing is very appealing to the organization’s culture. However, most business owners have found indoor activities to be more popular amongst all of their team members.
Forget the old ‘trust falls’ team building activity where one employee would fall backward with hopes that another would catch them. Today, companies are looking for more inventive experiences that can create comradery and accomplish the goals of leadership.
Escape rooms provide a perfect platform to enhance communication while breaking away from the typical workday. When you are engaged in an adventure at Locked In Escapes, each member’s contribution is respected and valued because of the collaborative nature of escape rooms.
Locked In Escapes has also partnered with a professional business coach so that we can help take your corporate event to the next level. Kelly Ikenberry is a business coach and author with desirable professional qualifications and over 750 hours of coaching experience.
Corporate Team Building in Colorado Springs
Locked In Escapes has partnered with Kelly Ikenberry Coaching to optimize your corporate event. She brings a new dynamic to escape rooms. With certifications to administer and interpret the DISC Behavioral Assessment, she can help leaders understand the individual personalities present on their teams.
Corporate team building inside of an escape room can benefit organizations because it helps leaders get to know their team. Escape rooms can also help fortify communication between team members and especially cross-departmental relationships. When you’re inside of an escape room, everyone locked in has to communicate frequently. Finding a clue and not telling everyone on the team can cause the whole team to not escape in time!
Fortify Communication Through Team Building
Communication is the most crucial behavior anyone locked in an escape room should demonstrate. When we put people who have cross-departmental communication issues in the closed quarters of a puzzle game, it brings out the comradery.
Team members will quickly learn the assets each individual brings to the game. Every person on a team needs to know how to utilize the right individual assets when their tool is most required for the team to win.
Through communication, these teammates can learn how to utilize the individual assets each person brings to the team when they have to solve a puzzle in the real world. The added benefit of this team building activity is the people in leadership positions may learn how to harness the potential previously untapped within their organization.
Unlock Hidden Potential With a Fun Team Building Activity in Colorado Springs
In our Colorado Springs escape room games, we can simulate high stakes scenarios, and that allows someone who may normally be behind the scenes an opportunity to shine and solve a critical puzzle. Racing against the clock to escape from an old abandoned cabin in the middle of the Rocky Mountain National Forest will undoubtedly rouse your team to step up in high-pressure situations. If that is of interest, you can book your corporate event with Locked In Escapes and have a team of four to six people play our escape room, Darkness Falls.
When team members escape from an abandoned cabin, they will undoubtedly build meaningful bonds that may not have existed before the game. Seeing people work together to solve problems and communicating to accomplish a common goal can allow distant team members to make new bonds. This team-building activity can also strengthen the existing relationships that are in early development stages.
Escape rooms are great for corporate events focused around team building because they create scenarios that require participants to exercise conflict resolution. To solve some of the puzzles and find hidden clues, team members have to implement critical thinking skills. Sometimes they even have to work together to solve the problem because not every clue reveals itself with a single person’s energy. 😉
Meeting Space in Colorado Springs
One of the added benefits of booking with Locked In Escapes for your next corporate event or team building activity is the conference room located in our facilities. We can seat up to twenty people in the conference room so you can have an important business meeting before starting your escape room team building activity.
This conference room is also the location Kelly Ikenberry delivers her value. Working with her will allow you to optimize your teams in the way you need it most. Kelly does a great job learning the goals of leadership in order to create the right environment for your team building activities to be successful.
