6 Movies To Get Your Teams Motivated

By | Museum Hack, Team Building | No Comments

Sometimes the best way to motivate your team is through good old fashioned storytelling. Stories transform our thinking and inspire us to do great things. Great stories not only entertain, but they bring people together through shared experiences and help build strong connections.

Movies at their core are just stories with actors and moving images, that’s why we love them! Sure, they act as a form of escapism, but they also offer a way for us to see new places and experience things outside of our own reality. Want to build stronger teams and inspire them to do their best? Show them examples of teams that struggle, overcome and ultimately succeed. An easy way to do this is to simply show them some kickass movies!

Check out the 6 movies Museum Hack picked as awesome team building flicks:

1. The Mighty Ducks

Leave it to beautiful-haired Coach Gordon Bombay to give epic team building advice. This classic 90s movie covers everything from teamwork to building focus. The Ducks may have started at the bottom but they fly to the top. Why? Because of awesome leadership and primo teamwork, of course.

Museum Hack Designs Custom Team Building Scavenger Hunt

By | Museum Hack, Team Building | No Comments

Our friends over at Museum Hack posted recently about a custom-built scavenger hunt they put together for Wix.com. What caught our eye about Museum Hack’s post was the way they highlighted the customer experience from start to finish.

According to the post, Wix.com reached out to Museum Hack with a specific team building goal in mind. The company wanted to promote a certain type of communication – and one that Museum Hack had yet to work with. That, however, didn’t stop the team and they set about creating a team building event for Wix that would emphasize the company’s distinct team building goals.

A Customized New York Team Building Experience

By | Museum Hack, Team Building | No Comments

You know it’s time to invest in a team building activity for your group, but how do you decide what activity to choose? There are dozens of choices for company team building events in New York City, and we’re here to help you narrow down those options so you can find the best fit for your team.

We firmly believe that team building isn’t one-size-fits all and we’re big fans of organizations that promote individualized, custom company team building events. What works well for your group may not be the best option for someone else.

Today, we’re highlighting Museum Hack, a New York-based tour guide and corporate events company that takes visitors on incredible tours of several local museums, including the Met, American Museum of Natural History, Rubin Museum, and the Fraunces Tavern.

Museum Hack is all about celebrating each company’s individuality. Their tour guides will take your group on a custom museum tour, revealing crazy, little-known secrets and juicy museum gossip. Tour guides will plan with you in advance to make sure you get exactly what you want out of your team building event. They’ll even design a completely custom scavenger hunt meant to tie your company themes into the activity! Recently, Museum Hack was able to create a brand new tour focused completely on yogurt for The Dannon Company at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

We love Museum Hack and their instance on celebrating what makes their customers unique. They are truly a company that believes no team building events should ever look completely alike. Get in touch and check out their New York company team building activites!

 

 

 

 

 

Fun Company Team Building Ideas

By | Museum Hack, Team Building | No Comments

We love collecting information on team building ideas here at TeamBuildNYC, so we’re always excited to see another article promoting different, fun team building activities. Last week, SmallBizTrends.com published a list of their top four popular and fun team building exercises. What makes their list so great is that it’s a combination of activities that can be done in or outside the office.

1) Office Trivia – SmallBizTrends.com suggests a round of office trivia to get your team members talking and bonding. To play, all you need is to come up with a list of questions about your company and even about your team members. Example questions include “How many people work here?,” “What year was the company founded?” and “Who is our CEO?.” Divide your team up into groups and have a fun trivia afternoon.

2) A Truth and a Lie – This is an oldie but goodie. In this activity, each team member shares two things about themselves, but there’s a catch: one of the statements is totally made up. It’s up to the group to determine what’s true and what’s false. This is a great way for your team members to get to know each other and have fun in surprising ways!

3) Volunteer – Volunteering is almost never a bad idea, but adding it to the team building repertoire is a great way to boost company morale and get out of the office. Volunteering activities can be as simple as planting trees or more involved like helping with a Habitat for Humanity project or walking shelter dogs for an afternoon.

4) Scavenger Hunts – Who doesn’t love a good treasure hunt? You can either design your own within the office or you can let someone else do the work for you. We love Museum Hack’s scavenger hunts in New York, Washington D.C., and San Francisco!

By | Museum Hack, Reviews, Team Building | No Comments

Museum Hack is an industry name in company team building in New York, but the renegade museum tour company is also starting to turn heads in Washington, DC and San Francisco. With their latest San Francisco expansion underway, the reviews are starting to roll in for team building activities in San Francisco, and it seems that the Bay Area is a fan of Museum Hack.

Mobile tech company Gigwalk is one of the most recent companies to head on a team building adventure with Museum Hack. The group of more than 30 employees, many of whom work remotely and don’t spend much time together in the office, journeyed to the de Young Museum for an afternoon of team bonding and activities.

1) Escape the Room NYC will lock your team in a room with just a few of clues showing how to get out. It’s up to your team to work together, find the clues, put all the puzzle pieces together and free themselves before the hour-long timer runs out.
