Your team thinks they are signed up for a one-hour motivational seminar in a conference room. What they don’t realize is once they enter the room, they will be locked inside and given 60 minutes to develop a plan, uncover solutions and get out. Office Escape is a thrilling mental game of discovery that will test and build participants’ skills at communication, leadership, problem-solving, and thinking outside the box as they race against the clock to escape the office.
How does it work?
What begins as a typical classroom-style PowerPoint seminar, a little bait and switch leaves your presented outside the room, and your coworkers locked inside with a simple set of instructions: To get out! You and your team have 60 minutes to escape, and somewhere buried in the office is the key to freedom. With a countdown clock ticking, It’s up to the team to get organized and develop a plan to get out before the time is up.
Your team must solve a handful of puzzles and riddles hidden throughout the room, ranging from brain teasers, unlocking codes and even surfing the web. Each clue leads to another until the key is found. Success is based on effective communication and staying calm. Each team member must talk and listen equally. Natural leaders emerge throughout each of the various puzzles and mind games if teams choose to listen and trust one another.
How your team benefits
Office Escape uses the science of synergy to engage team interpersonal communication and problem solving skills in a fun, mentally stimulating atmosphere. Participants must learn the importance of communication as they work together and discover real-time lessons in the challenges and benefits of collaborating under pressure. Finally, participants experience the value of time management: Don’t panic! When teams are given a deadline, they tend to kick into gear at the midpoint of the timeline. A sluggish start can still mean a victorious finale for your team as they develop balance and synergy during the game.
