How Team Building Strengthens Organizations (And How Axe Throwing Can Help!)

Posted on: February 23rd, 2023 by Buhv Designs

Investing in team building activities can improve your business or organization in a number of ways. Best of all, team building activities can be a lot of fun! At American Paintball Coliseum, we’re all about having a good time. Let’s look at some of the ways team building events can strengthen your organization.

Strengthen Collaboration Skills 💪

Team building activities typically encourage a group of people to work together toward a common goal. Collaboration is like a muscle, and with practice, you can strengthen your group’s ability to communicate and solve problems together. This leads to a more positive work environment where everyone feels heard, and where individuals can give and receive the help they need to solve work-related problems.

Improve Employee Morale 😃

An organization that invests in team building activities communicates that it cares about the quality of the work environment. This allows members to feel valued, promotes positive relationships, and provides a sense of unity. Investing in employee morale is also one of the best ways to attract qualified team members and to maintain the ones you’ve already got.

Offer a Way to Practice Better Communication 💬

Solid communication is the secret to success and it’s becoming more crucial as remote work gains popularity. Without strong communication across the board, the workflow can be negatively affected, tanking productivity. Team building activities like axe throwing encourage employees to build relationships in a fun environment, and this transfers seamlessly to the workplace. That way, it’s easier to share ideas, solve problems, and communicate effectively.

Encourage Creativity 🖊️

Sometimes a work environment can become so monotonous that creativity becomes obsolete. In order to thrive as a business or organization, it’s important to encourage team members to look at problems from different angles and offer solutions that may not seem obvious to everyone else. Team building can shake things up, and silly tasks allow your employees to take risks by suggesting out-of-the-box ideas. It also promotes the valuable process of bouncing ideas off of one another to determine the best way to solve a problem.

Connect Remote Workers 💻

If your company has employees who work remotely, it can be difficult for everyone to feel connected. A team building event offers the perfect opportunity for employees to gather in a neutral space, while working together toward a common goal. It’s a great way to build relationships, establish unity, and make remote employees feel like they’re part of the team, especially when it’s so easy to feel isolated while working from home.

Increase Productivity ⏫

Because team building activities encourage participants to communicate and work together to solve problems, it naturally increases productivity in the workplace. Employees can connect easily in an informal environment when the pressure’s off, making it easier to discuss ideas and work together on projects when they’re back at the office on Monday.

Why Axe Throwing Helps With Team Building 🪓

If you’ve been tasked with planning the next team building event, consider opting for an evening of axe throwing or paintball. Gone are the days of uncomfortable icebreakers and corny games.. Axe throwing offers an unexpected twist to your average team building event, and it encourages crews to work together in a way they have not interacted before.

At American Paintball Coliseum, we host team building events for a number of organizations throughout the community. It’s our mission to provide a safe, light-hearted space for your employees to build lasting relationships and gel as a team. Contact us to schedule your next team building event.

Top 3 Reasons to Host a Team Building Event

Posted on: February 9th, 2022 by Kyle Raley


Team building events have become increasingly popular for companies of all sizes. In such a busy world why would you switch a work day for a day of play?

We offer these kinds of events and still, we team build outside of our facilities at least once a year.

These are the top 3 benefits we see businesses achieve from hosting a team builder event 👇

Teambuilding is important. Even for the teams that offer teambuilding events!

The smiles come out! 😊

During a regular day, teams may be tied to their departments or areas of responsibility. This limits the crossover and interaction on the job. At a company team building event, co-workers have the ability to express their personality to peers within your organization.

Playful interaction between work mates, who otherwise have little to do with each other builds and strengthens positive bonds. Team building can be used to to break past business barriers. Hosting a paintball or laser tag event builds a web of experience for everyone who participates to share.

Teammates use their experiences to relate to each other well into the future. Increases in moral and positive energy will be very clear. It is healthy to play!

Communication is KEY 🗝️

Team building is often focused around an interactive activity which is on purpose! The activity (such as paintball, laser tag or airsoft in our case) serves as a problem that only a team effort can complete. It forces players to rely on each other and to work in dynamic situations.

The activity is often unfamiliar so players need to think critically and communicate with each other to overcome the task at hand.

This translates to regular duties in a big way by increasing trust and reliability. In turn, you promote creative, critical thinkers and better communicators that will offer big gains through the year. All this in exchange for a couple hours of having fun with your team. Not bad, right?

Small Success breeds big success 📈

Simply winning a couple paintball games might not seem like much but the small wins are still important. These wins build confidence and bring new teammates into the “gel”. Team building events offer a positive common ground to base new relationships.

Investing in culture and the social fabric within your company is critical to growth and retention. Think to yourself, what would it cost me to replace a top-performer? If you miss out on the “life” part of work, you will leave business on the table or worse, you could lose the doers that get it done.

Think your team needs a team building event? We can help. 🧐
