Looking for a team building activity that will foster a positive company atmosphere, bring your team closer together, and most importantly, that’s also fun? Chocolate making does all this and more! Chocolate isn’t just a delicious indulgence, it can also become the key element of a great team building event.
If you’re ready to put smiles on faces at work, get everyone involved in creating, decorating, and tasting their own fine Belgian chocolates. This is a great way to build enthusiasm and positive energy – an essential ingredient in good team building activities. When people want to participate, they’re primed to bond, have fun, and get the most out of the event. Let’s face it, when it comes to chocolate, everyone wants to participate (as long as they get a taste at the end)!
Chocolate is a unique sweet treat packed with healthy antioxidants and flavonoids. Dark chocolate is known to release endorphins and boost your mood. Indulging in a piece of decadent chocolate will help your teammates reduce stress and relax, which also helps them build relationships. If stress relief is a primary goal for your team, chocolate will pave the way.
Space to Bond
Getting to know one another is easy over a tray of warm chocolate. If you have a newly formed team or some new teammates who feel out of the loop, you want to put them in an environment where everyone will have something to say. Chocolate is a comforting way to bring people out of their shell, and melt away old tensions.
Get a Taste of Creativity
There are no wrong answers in chocolate decorating. No matter how you sprinkle the coconut shavings or drizzle the icing, it’s going to be delicious. This freedom is relaxing but also re-energizing. Your teammates will reconnect with their creativity, think outside the box, and carry that energy back into the workplace.
A Change of Scene
Getting out of the office is an effective approach to help change your team’s state of mind and find new ways of engagement and problem-solving. Our chocolate workshops are mobile, so we can follow you anywhere in Southern Ontario or the Greater Toronto Area. Whether you want to head to a five-star restaurant or a team member’s home – we’re always ready.
An Efficient Use of Time
The attitude your team leaves with is as important as the attitude they started with. Some team building events can leave staff with anxiety or the feeling that they wasted their time, especially if they have a lot of work left back at the office.
What makes our chocolate workshops different? They’re sweet and memorable! Even after the last chocolate has been eaten, new connections between your team will remain. Our testimonials tell the story of teams that had an amazing experience, engaged with one another, and have reaped rewards at the workplace afterwards.
