Times are A-Changin’ and So are Corporate Team-Building Activities

August 26, 2022

In the aftermath of covid-19, the pressure to adapt and manage increasingly more digital relationships is high, forcing corporate leadership to rethink their strategies to keep team engagement and productivity high. Zoom life has its advantages, a major one being the opportunity for your team to log on and connect from virtually (no pun intended) anywhere. However, facilitating a digital connection, while being the best alternative to connecting in person, is another animal. That’s where we come in.

What is “Live In Theater?”

Imagine being able to hire an industry-leading theater company, who innovates the facilitation of mesmerizing, nail-biting, can’t-look-away digital dramas, to handle team-building activities for you. Now, that’s what we like to call a win-win! 

We at Live In Theater specialize in hosting immersive theater experiences, to include team-building activities, holiday parties, and private celebrations that are sure to pique the interest of even your most stoic executive. You can feel good about investing in our corporate team-building activities because we guarantee to provide an unforgettable experience helping to develop the skills you need out of your workforce, all disguised as a wildly fun time for everyone to enjoy!

What Qualities Constitute Effective Corporate Team-Building Activities?

Corporate team-building activities can sometimes spell “snoozefest” for team members, but that’s not how we operate. Not only are we masters of the digital theater experience, but we also intimately understand the qualities that constitute effective team-building that brings your team members together, creates fun memories, and has a lasting impact on your team’s ability to be cohesive, creative, and ultimately successful. 


Everyone knows that the most successful businesses consist of successful teams, so let’s take a look at the qualities that constitute the most effective team-building activities.


  1. Problem-Solving. For one, there has to be some challenge to overcome. The level or intensity of the challenge will be relative to each person, with each of them bringing their own unique skills and viewpoint that can be leveraged by the team to accomplish their goal.
  2. Cooperation. A skill unique to the success of the human race is our ability to cooperate in the pursuit of achieving a common goal. It sets us apart from just about every other species and requires its own subset of skills, such as leadership, trust, communication, and delegation. In order to cooperate, we may have to set aside any “beef” that may get in the way of our ability to be successful, which opens the door for forgiveness, letting go, and ultimately overcoming problems to be better together, a highly prized soft skill that is crucial for teams to practice.
  3. Delegation. Because each person has their own unique set of skills to bring to any problem or challenge, it is in the best interest of the team and their success to have each team member in a role that leverages each individual’s unique skills to create the easiest lift possible for all. Not to mention, delegating tasks creates structure for the problem and the team. Having clear roles and responsibilities provides a feeling of clarity and promotes a sense of ownership in each individual. This in turn creates feelings of belonging, as each person has a very important role to play in the overall management and success of the team. 
  4. Communication. It is possible to achieve success without good communication practices once or twice. Yet, in order to repeatedly succeed, a system for highly effective communication cannot be overlooked. 
  5. Leadership. While many teams have leaders who are always leading, you may find that some team members jump at the opportunity to lead in different contexts. Having at least some leadership skills developed in each team member is ideal so that when a leader exits, you have a pool of qualified leaders who have the team’s trust to fill the new role.
  6. Fun. When your team is having fun, they feel more connected to each other and to themselves! It’s no secret that fun is directly related to memory retention and learning. In our corporate team-building activities, fun is guaranteed.
