Embracing Our Inner Child: How the power of play build strong teams


In today’s fast paced world, work can be extremely stressful and demanding, leaving little time for play or leisure. Today, we will explore how helping your team engage their playful side can improve their dynamics and increase overall team performance. 


1. Encourage creativity & innovation

During play, we abandon our inhibitions and freely experiment with new ideas and concepts, unafraid of making mistakes. This promotes free thinking and breaks down the mental barriers of individuals helping them think without the restrictions we put upon ourselves as we grow into adults. Resulting in the increased likelihood of innovation which is essential to maintain a competitive edge.

2. Foster trust & Teamwork

Engaging in play teaches individuals how to rely and work together to achieve a common goal. This strengthens bonds between team members and improves the communication, which can lead to increased productivity and efficiency.

It breaks the ice between new team members, and allows people to find out more about one another without the stress of work and delivering results in the way. Allowing people to develop a stronger understanding of someone's true personality.

3. Boost morale & reduce stress

Taking a break from the demands to engage in a fun activity can help employees recharge and refocus. This can lead to improved job satisfaction and more positive working environment. Through maintaining a healthy stress level for the company and ensuring that employees feel loved and appreciated. 

At Cohesion, we offer a range of playful and inclusive team building activities designed to help employees embrace their inner child and strengthen their bonds with their colleagues. From bubble soccer, archery tags and more!


In conclusion, embracing our inner child and incorporating play into the workplace can have a significant impact on team dynamic and overall performance. At Cohesion we believe that team building activities offer a fun and effective way to improve communication, foster trust and boost morale.
