When teams use interactive activities, they become more productive and collaborative. Also, strong teams, though, will prosper from team-building activities; they are an effective way to enhance communication, morale, inspiration, and efficiency, as well as assisting workers or new teams in getting to know one another and learning about one's strengths and limitations.
Any enterprise, large or small, may use team-building interactive games to encourage stronger workplace teamwork, and as most business owners and managers know, team spirit is one of the main factors involved with business performance.
Communication exercises, problem-solving activities, decision-making activities, or enjoyable activities, and activities that concentrate on building trust are the four primary forms of team-building activities. The aim is to engage in a variety of activities that are both enjoyable and demanding in order to foster teamwork skills that will increase employee efficiency and productivity at work.

Game of Life Highlights
This is a fantastic icebreaker experience that works well for both large and small groups. Start by asking participants to shut their eyes for one minute and think about their favorite moments. This could include experiences they've had individually, with relatives, or with friends; these moments can include professional accomplishments, personal revelations, or thrilling life adventures.
Inform the participants that their search for highlights is about to be narrowed after they have had a chance to go over the highlights of their lives. Ask each participant to consider what 30 seconds of their life they would like to relive if they only had thirty seconds left in their lives while keeping their eyes closed.
The activity's leader would question each participant what everyone’s 30 seconds consisted of and why they selected it, allowing participants to get a sense of one another's interests, passions, and attitudes.
