Board games not only provide a great program for the whole family, but also have a serious, scientifically proven impact on children’s development.

These games help children gain knowledge and experience, while also improving perseverance and concentration. They provide an opportunity for children to discover new things in a safe environment, e.g. experiencing failure for the first time.

Concentration and perseverance

While playing a board game, children learn to focus on one thing at a time and to finish what they started. They also get introduced to the concept of work and commitment. After losing a game they take the dice and try again, they learn not to give up.

Logical thinking

Board games also help children learn to plan and think ahead. The development of logical thinking is becoming more and more important in schools, but they can’t acquire this skill early enough. Logic and strategy board games offer a great opportunity to do so. In these types of games, you need to plan your next steps and create a strategy.

Creativity and cognitive abilities

While board games improve abilities connected to concentration and problem-solving, let’s not skip games that help children to get creative—imagination and creativity are just as important and they gain more and more attention from board game creators. Besides their social and creative aspects, they offer a quality time together with the family that might improve cognitive abilities and skills. Cooperative games are relatively new, the emphasis is on collaboration instead of competitiveness in these games. Try memory games or games like Bandido or Mmm!.

Playful learning

Let’s not forget that board games are all about having fun, it’s their primary purpose in the end. Kids are able to make a game out of anything, even a past experience. It’s important to make the most of this ability of theirs, since it is not only a great opportunity for kids, but adults too.

Forget Team Building Activities And Let People Get to Work
If you do decide on any team building activities, then please ensure they are not over demanding. So many managers get fed a stream of propaganda about the benefits of team building involving strenuous physical activity. But it's all totally redundant. You can achieve as much with a chili cook-off during the lunch break, or simply sitting down and having a coffee together.

In America, they have a civil rights law, The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that is designed to protect against discrimination for people with disabilities. It covers all areas of public life and gives those with disabilities the same possibilities as those without. That’s the theory anyway.

Team Building and Leadership - So Much Hot Air
If you are seeing undesirable outcomes, then don't examine the team who produced them, but examine the system that created them in the first place. You need to be able to separate what you want to believe from the real evidence. And it's here that nearly all team buildings go wrong. Simply put, they focus on the wrong things because to focus on the right things would mean criticising upper managem
