Escape Room: what are the goals?

The goal of the activity is to stimulate the mind, intuition and logic. It is also an important activity with regards to building a team.

Collaboration between all participants, in fact, is an indispensable factor in solving the puzzles and successfully completing the game.

As it may not seem, moreover, an important factor to consider is also the time. For an excellent result of the activity, therefore, communication, leadership and time management are fundamental. Furthermore, it is important to know how to observe and control everything that happens, nothing should be left to chance!

And what skills can be learned?

  • Communication: to get out of the room as winners participants need to find a solution. Through communication, it will be possible to exchange opinions and hypotheses, up to the final decision. It is obvious to specify the importance of this ability also within the company as it is fundamental to achieve a good communication level, to grow and improve.
  • Lead: it means the ability to take control and guide the various elements of a team. In every company it is essential to find the right person to fill this role. The Escape Room allows you to do it naturally and spontaneously, without injustices of any kind.
  • Differentiation: thinking outside the box is sometimes seen as a quality to be hidden rather than highlighted. Within a team, however, it is right to consider all the hypotheses before arriving at a solution. In the Escape Room there are many puzzles for which you will need to evaluate any suggestions. Even the strangest one could prove to be reliable, so why not learn and adopt this system even within the company?
  • Listening skills: all participants and team members have a voice. Not listening to even one of them (perhaps the one with the right solution) could decree failure. And even if everyone is wrong, the attempt is still appreciable. A good leader and a good team can listen and evaluate accordingly.
  • Sense of solidarity: with each trap revealed, the team hugs each other in a symbolic virtual embrace, increasing their sense of participation and supporting one another. Even at a distance, this friendly climate is a strong foundation for building a solid corporate team.
