Team Building Activities that boost employee engagement 

$197 AUD

One of the most successful employee engagement strategies is to empower your leaders with the tools, processes and skills to inject more energy, fun and interaction into your team.

Let me ask you this:

  • Do you need to Boost Team Engagement, but don’t really know where to start?
  • Is your team energy a little ‘stale’?
  • Have you tried to deliver some team activities yourself with varying results?

Injecting more fun into your team is proven to boost engagement and performance. Seriously who wants to come a ‘boring’ workplace and when was the last time you were productive when bored out of your wits?!

Boosting team engagement is like bathing – it’s something you need to do every day otherwise you’ll start to stink!

Employee Engagement activities that actually work!

For over 20 years Mike has been teaching leaders the skills, tool and processes on how to build employee engagement and you’ll learn a couple of activities in this workshop that you can get started with straight away!

And by getting started, you’ll get quick results:

  • An employment services team improved team engagement by 10% which increased performance by 47%… in Just 5 Minutes a Day for 30 Days
  • 82% of participants agreed Funergizers built stronger relationships both within and across teams…. in Just 5 Days
  • Another 85% of participants said that Funergizers made them feel more energized, positive, productive and enthused about their work!… from Only One 30 Minute Session

Each time we run this course we teach different funergizers all designed to fill your toolkit with different activities you can run to drive different outcomes.

Whether it’s a quick scavenger hunt, creative challenge, team relay activity or something else totally unexpected, it’s guaranteed to be quick, easy to run, highly engaging and fun!

You’ll be able to easily run this yourself in your next team meeting, whether it’s face to face, or blended with some staff working from home.

Funergizers come in a mix of:

  • Quick ‘energizers’ and ‘team-connectors’ perfect for team meetings and daily huddles
  • Engagement Activities that can ‘bubble away’ in the background
  • Longer Team Bonding Events which are perfect for team days and gatherings

Online or Onsite

Running our Team Building Activities Workshop was something that up until COVID, was always conducted onsite.

Of course, COVID completely shifted the way we need to think about training delivery and like our other courses, we have now shifted it to an online delivery format.

The good news is moving to online hasn’t compromised the course at all!

But we understand some people like training conducted onsite where possible and with COVID restrictions starting to ease, we are now starting to take private course bookings with our public courses continuing to be offered online only for the foreseeable future.

Public and Private Training Options 

This Team Building Activities Workshop is available publicly (with others) or privately (just for your business) with the differences explained below.

Private Courses

Whilst the public courses can be a great way to interact with others and are perfect for small numbers, sometimes you need more flexibility with the dates and times or you’d like the benefits of training exclusively for your team so you can all gain the skills, processes and tools together at the same time.

Our private courses also enable you to choose the dates and times of the workshops to suit your business and are more cost-effective for larger numbers.

Learn more about our private course options >

Public Courses

The Team Building Activities Workshop is delivered as a one hour workshop via ZOOM and is open to the general public. This is perfect for small numbers of employees attending and the added benefit of meeting and learning from others in the industry (also a great way to help build the network for new starters in the industry).

The times and dates are fixed to enable you to plan ahead around rosters, diaries etc – If you would like to have more flexibility on the dates, times and content refer to our private options.

The training provided manages to take complex sales strategies and make them easy to understand and implicate in a... sales call. It provides a structure that isn’t stifled by wordy scripts and pitches, and guides consultants towards a successful outcome for both the customer and consultant.This training took efficient, tried and tested sales concepts and expand on them to not only generate higher conversion, but a more positive customer experience.Aside from the training, which was amazing, Simon - the trainer - was a pleasure to work with. He was attentive and showed a real passion and desire to enhance the trainee’s sales expertise.I would recommend CX Group to anyone who will listen!read more

Daniel, Marcus and Justin provided an outstanding course that was presented professionally and engaging. It was great... to attend a training course that enabled time to ask relevant questions, obtain reassurance and seek clarification from other participants.Though the session was run via Zoom, I felt Daniel engaged with the attendees in such a way that it encouraged networking opportunities and learn from each other as well as supporting each other in progressing theory into current real life examples.I look forward at seeing what other courses CX Skills can not only me but other team members.Cannot speak enough about the after course work and the offering Justin provides for the CX community. Look forward to seeing you a future session... Maybe the QA development session later this year!read more

Justin from CX responded promptly to my training enquiry. He heard what we wanted and we discussed best way to present... this during Melbourne Lockdown. He conducted the introduction to contact centre leadership remotely with a small group. He weaved his contact centre experience with humour and activities that were appropriate and engaging. At the end each person agreed that they learnt lots and were going to apply at least one thing back in their role. I would highly recommend CX and Justin for training and more
