Since 1997 Group Dynamix has been connecting people in fun ways . In working with hundreds of group leaders, teachers, youth pastors, coaches, scout masters and various trainers, many have asked us about where we get our activities, particularly those they could do at their location. So to be helpful, we have created a free resource called Team Building Tips, a.k.a. Teaming Tips. Team Building Tips contains descriptions of group games, activities, ice breakers and team building exercises that group leaders can use with their group. We also offer workshops where you can learn the latest and greatest games and activities that will excite and unite your group. If you are interested in coming to one of our workshops, check out our Games We Play page.
