A unique and extremely relevant tool, Treasure Hunting can be used by companies for the purpose of engendering team building initiatives amongst staff. This is because Treasure Hunting, as an activity in itself, has the following characteristics that instigate a positive form of team dynamics and inter-personal communication skills – essential for team building :
- Team members are required to work together cohesively to achieve the goal, or end result.
- Being challenged by the situation of the Hunt, team members will naturally form a team structure – with an overall leader, and facilitators of other resources, such as, navigation, driving, researchers, etc.
- Resource Management skills are inculcated as the team has to complete tasks within time frames and minimal resource capacity.
- The challenge of the Hunt will also encourage the team to improve on Time Management skills.
