2. Wine Walk
Charter a van to the Monterey Peninsula (safety first!) and enjoy all the walkable wine tasting rooms that Carmel-by-the-Sea or Carmel Valley Village has to offer. Arrange a blind tasting and compare notes. Create teams and give prizes for the most creatively-written wine description. Unwind and open yourself to connecting in ways that are never going to happen in a cube.
Divide your team into unlikely pairs or groups. We provide a list of photo hints that groups are required to locate and take a selfie with for proof, texting the photo to a “judge” for verification. Groups can win prizes for fastest completion, best photo, etc. Working together with friendly competition is not only fun, it allows a team leader to identify traits that are not always evident on the daily.
