A Typical Treasure Hunt Snapshot
With less than an hour to go before the deadline, your 5-person treasure hunt team stops for a breather beside a glittering mosaic in the New Orleans French Quarter (or in front of a time capsule in Greenwich Village; or next to the Venus De Milo within the Paris Louvre…). You pause to take it all in: the local atmosphere; the pleasure of getting away from the office with your co-workers; the rush of cracking these brilliantly creative puzzles & clues (who thinks up these things??). And all on the streets (and within the museums) of the world’s greatest cities. It’s amazing to interact with a city this way — discovering the hidden nooks and crannies that even the locals don’t know about. And it’s so fun (and important) to learn about the skills and personalities of your colleagues: who knew that Jack is such a whiz at detail work and decryption; that Stephanie has an eye for the “big picture” and can do crossword puzzles in her sleep; that Ronnie is a fantastic leader and your “go-to person” for sports and movie trivia knowledge?!! This treasure hunt thing isn’t so hard when you make smart group decisions, leverage diverse skills and talents AND — when appropriate — practice cross-team collaboration. But you better watch out…the clock’s still ticking; sixty minutes left and five more clue locations to visit. It’s time to get moving!
