Team building refers to a wide range of activities for improving team performance. Team building benefits can be applied to sports teams, school groups, and corporate groups. Gliding Revolution's focus is to bring out the best in every team to ensure group development, positive communication, leadership skills, and improved problem solving.
The ability to create effective teams is a challenge in every organization, yet it's vital to success. We specialize in Segway Team Building, Segway Tours, and Camera-Capture Scavenger Hunts.
Our location includes a great everyday outdoor Team Building facility in downtown Austin, or we can travel to the location of your choice!
Segway Team Building
Have you thought about trying a Segway? We created the "Ride-it Experience", which gives small and large groups an affordable option to experience a Segway. The Ride-It Experience Activities are conducted using our field or indoor obstacle course for team relay games.
The Camera Capture
We will divide your group into teams, and each team will then receive a list of things to capture with a digital camera. The first group to capture all of their assigned images and return to the starting area wins! For a grand finale, the entire group will get together to look at each team's slideshow of images.
Each team member is to state his or her name and attach an adjective to the name. This adjective describes a key characteristic but also starts with the person's first name. Examples: Suspicious Sonya, Neighborly Nathan, and Dependable Dan. Each team member will have a temporary name tag with their nick name written on it. A perfect addition to any tour or scavenger hunt!
