Problem-solving, working under pressure, communication and leadership are four skills you will have an opportunity to explore with your employees and coworkers during a team building experience at Lockology Columbus Escape Room. Get locked into a themed puzzle room with your team to try to solve clues and escape the room. It is a much more entertaining and interactive experience than your typical corporate team building event.
The clues in our escape rooms are not designed to be solved quickly. You have to work things out and piece things together to be successful, sometimes thinking abstractly. This is a great way to push your group to think outside the box and figure out which pieces fit together.
Working Under Pressure
When your team enters the room of choice, everyone will have an hour to work together, solve the puzzle and win the game. Some people work better with strict deadlines. When the clock starts counting down, participants need to keep calm and focused to work through the clues efficiently.
Talking with each other when trying to solve one of our puzzles is crucial to beating the clock. The group needs to split up and examine the room for any clues that might be around and try to figure out what the clues mean or where they go. Quietly sorting an idea in the corner will not cut it with the time limit.
Splitting up is a great way to find the many facets of the room that you will actually need for the puzzle. Some people will have to step up and examine the organization of the process. If people get stuck, they need to find a way to look at that bit in a new light or take a break from it and work on another piece, which takes the savvy to know when to back off or persevere.
Using an escape room as a team building experience is an engaging way to check out your group’s strengths and weaknesses. Even if you do not successfully solve the puzzle, you will gain insight into what your employees excel at and what needs improvement.
