What Quiz is Right the Right Quiz?
If you are a social media surfer, you are likely aware of how popular quizzes have become. And while quizzes are often a marketing tactic for businesses, you may want to consider how to use the popularity of quizzes as a team building idea. Especially since there are so many you can use that have great content—and are free!
Here are 5 benefits of using quizzes for teambuilding:
1. REASON #1 FIND OUT MORE ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR TEAM
Teams are always measured by some scorecard and team building quizzes can be a great way to check in and see how you are doing. Many quizzes will have a way to show you how you compare to the norm, where you can improve, or at least offer you some feedback on how you measure up. Most quizzes are written in a light tone so the feedback is less harsh and easier to receive constructively!
2. REASON #2 GREAT WAY TO SHARE INFORMATION WITH EACH OTHER
It’s natural for people to want to compare their results with each other. The quiz results often share a point of view about some qualities about ourselves that can be enlightening to other team members, family, friends, and co-workers!
3. REASON #3 GOOD FOR STARTING CONVERSATIONS
If you pick a quiz that has a topic that you want your business team to pay attention to, like the quiz we created on Focus and Teams, it can be a helpful way to start talking about the topic. We created this quiz because we see teams struggling with distraction all the time, yet rarely are people talking about it and what to do about it. The quiz gives people a reason to start that conversation.
4. REASON #4 MAKES LEARNING QUICK AND FUN
A short team building quiz can be just enough of a break from serious business topics without taking up too much productivity time. They typically only take a minute or two to complete, and results are instant, making the information very efficient to use. One technique that business teams really enjoy is pooling all the results together in real time. This gives them a snapshot of the how the whole team relates to this topic and sparks some fascinating interaction.
5. REASON #5 LEADS TO MORE IN-DEPTH LEARNING
