Effective Teamwork: Lessons from an Escape Room 

“Escape” your regular work routine with this interactive workshop!

In partnership with:

Successful teamwork in an escape room requires shared purpose, effective leadership, good communication, mutual trust and group synergy — the very same characteristics needed for team success in today’s economy.

That’s why we have partnered with Escape Manor since 2015 to deliver hundreds of interactive workshops to help teams extract lessons from their escape room and apply them to their ongoing teamwork in the workplace.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

1) Build a sense of cohesion by inspiring team members to actively participate in collaborative problem-solving

2) Extract key insights and lessons in teamwork and leadership and apply them to your team’s day-to-day work

3) Identify your team’s strengths and areas for development in collaboration and communication

4) Explore strategies to effectively leverage your team’s strengths and improve upon challenges

LOCATION & FORMAT OPTIONS

This experience can be delivered in the following formats, depending on your team’s location and preferences:

1) In-person at one of the Escape Manor locations (Ottawa, Toronto or Hamilton)

2) In-person at a location that is convenient for you (such as an office or conference space), using our portable escape game, Ransom and Return

3) Online anywhere in the world using one of Escape Manor’s virtual escape games, TAKEN I: The Swiss Account, TAKEN II: Finding Caesar, or Society of Themis

TIMING OPTIONS

Approx. 1-hour escape room activity + an interactive post-escape workshop (1-3 hours, depending on your team’s needs)

“The escape rooms were a blast — our team was very engaged in the activity and we left the room with renewed energy. The opportunity to learn from our experience through the post-escape workshop, however, set this experience apart from other team-building sessions we have done. The workshop is a necessary component to turn a fun team-bonding experience into a great team- building one. We were able to relate the most important aspects of effective collaboration and communication from the escape room to our ongoing teamwork. I highly recommend this workshop if you are looking to have fun, learn a lot and improve your team’s communication and productivity.”

- Frédéric Thibault-Chabot, Dean of Teaching, Collège La Cité
