Team Building Exercises

I've been asked to come up with some 'team building exercises' for our program (16 people) at the holiday retreat later this month. Usually when I think of 'team building exercises I sort of cringe. Does anyone know of some interesting/fun/creative activities to do? I have a lot of flexibility in terms of what counts as team building (e.g. Wii games, Foosball, and gift exchanges have come up as potential ideas).

Well, I don't have any suggestions for what you *should* do. But, here's what not to do for team building.

It's vital to ensure what you do has context with the current reality of the team experience.

Ideally, you are not just going building a raft without having at least some relationship with the people in the team that has already been cultivated at least.

Otherwise the use of your hard earned money and time will not be to the best value.
