Team Building for New Teams

These ‘Free Team Building’ activities are supplied by Fresh Tracks who specialise in providing corporate team building and team development days for some of Europe’s leading companies. They understand that many people simply want free team building games that they can run at work themselves. In response to this they have compiled a database of free team building activities all of which have been tried and tested. Most of these free team building ideas have been developed by Fresh Tracks and can be easily run by almost anyone in an office.

Title: Circle Of Questions

Participants: 6 - 60
Timing: 15 - 30 Minutes
Overview: An introductory activity that gets participants listening to one another. And in doing so, finding out about each other’s values. Participants form two circles, one inside the other. As the circles rotate in opposite directions, participants are faced with different colleagues who ask and respond to a series of questions.
