We at Patriot Axe Throwing are proud to be a part of axe throwing’s recent rise to popularity. Like many trendy activities, axe throwing can be easy to dismiss as a passing fad, but our team believes in its long-long lasting appeal and benefits. In our experience, one of the most significant benefits that axe throwing can offer is great team building. To convince you, in this article, our team will be going over some of the reasons why axe throwing makes a great team building activity.
- Breaks the Everyday Routine- One reason why axe throwing makes an ideal team building activity is that it’s so different from anything in your everyday routine. Putting your team members in a unique situation is a great way to shake up their thinking, as they have to create new approaches to new problems. The change from the everyday also allows different aspects of your teammates’ personalities to shine through, allowing you to get to know each other better.
- Builds Communication- Another reason why we at Patriot Axe Throwing believe in the power of axe throwing to build teamwork is that it forces your team to communicate in order to succeed. Evaluating each other’s technique in this novel activity and providing direct feedback opens up avenues of communication that may have become stagnant in your ordinary office environment.
- Engages the Whole Body- Axe throwing is an especially useful team building activity for those who work in a traditional office environment because it engages the whole body. Not only is getting your whole body involved better for your overall health, but it also activates more neural connections, allowing you to think more clearly and creatively about work problems.
