Paiho Team Building: Taste The Rainbow With This Icebreaker


Team Building With A Sweet Twist


We might see our coworkers every day for 8 hours, but do we really know them? 


We decided to test out this fun activity at our last meeting to get to know each other. We learned about our shared goals and interests as well as how individual strengths can make the team stronger overall. The best part – everyone gets candy at the end!


Give this activity a shot at your next meeting, you might be surprised what you’ll learn about your coworkers. We hope this activity will with help your team building as well.
