We all know how difficult it can be to get a group of people with very different personalities to see eye-to-eye and work together in unison, especially in the business world. Each person brings their own, unique piece to the team, but unless everyone feels like they can communicate openly and express their ideas, ultimately productivity will suffer. So how do we break down these barriers? My one piece of advice is to get out of the conference room and away from routine to most effectively increase communication and camaraderie. And what better place to do that than in Half Moon Bay, CA?
Half Moon Bay is the perfect destination for teambuilding because of the endless opportunities outdoors and mild weather to go along with it. Whether you and your team are interested in simply relaxing or diving into something physically challenging, there are activities that cover the whole spectrum. Here is a quick list of everything you can do outdoors that will encourage communication or teamwork amongst your group, or just simply relax and recharge their minds:
|Fishing||Scouring tidepools and the shoreline|
|Whale watching||Visiting a farm|
|Relaxing on the beach||Birding|
|Playing games or sports on the beach||Tasting wine at wineries|
For many of the activities mentioned above, there are tours or charters to guide and assist your group to ensure everyone gets the best experience possible. Some of these activities more strongly promote working together, such as operating an 8-person paddleboard, sailing the open seas, and playing sports or games on the beach. Others will open the opportunity for conversation that may not have usually occurred between team members. Also, recharging and relaxing are great for morale and productivity, which is exactly what all of these activities are designed to do. So take your pick!
