Building a Bridge Teamwork Activity

“Summit Team Building was recommended to me by a couple of colleagues. They both mentioned that the building a bridge teamwork activities they experienced were fun, but meaningful, and so well presented. I have to say that after experiencing the "Building Bridges" session I agree with them on all accounts.”

Barry Smith,

The Idea

During the Building a Bridge teamwork activity your team’s goal is to build a series of highly specialized bridges. Participants will operate in small groups, cross-functional teams and as an entire organization to accomplish this bridge building challenge. With limited time and resources, coupled with the expectation of big results, your team will have to tap into the necessary elements of effective communication in order to succeed.

The Details

  • Through an interactive approach to learning, participants will gain insight into the elements of effective communication
  • Sub-groups will work on constructing sections of a bridge from geographically separated areas, with various barriers being placed on communication and collaboration being limited and strategic
  • Meetings between sub-groups must be maximized in order to ensure the bridges will meet in the middle, and adhere to all the building parameters
  • Bridges will be inspected, ensuring they meet all the building specifications and pass the weight test!
