Benefits of Team Building
When you think of company retreats, the things that pop into your head are probably motivational speakers and trust falls. But you should keep in mind that team building retreats go much deeper than that. Whether you are running a company of 500 or 5, organising a retreat or changing pace will help re-energise your team, strengthen internal bonds and encourage cooperation between departments. Because team work plays such a critical role in the success of a business, team building activities are vital.
With team building activities, you can ensure the development of trust among your employees. Trust is a component that is to business, especially in companies that require team work on a daily basis to achieve objectives and grow. Team building activities foster trust and this will help your employees to depend more on each other and as a result, they will be more efficient and productive. There are many activities and exercises that can help you achieve this. One exercise that can help you achieve this takes two employees and requires them to maintain eye contact for a minimum of 60 seconds without looking away. This can make employees become more trusting and comfortable with each other.
There are problems in any business. With team building activities, a stronger bond can be established between employees or coworkers who may have the habit of blaming one another when issues or problems crop up while working on business projects together. These activities help them work in unison and the bond can help increase collaboration and harmony among employees during daily work related activities. The team building activities you assign should require all employees to participate at once. For example, present a hypothetical business problem to your team, assign each employee with specific responsibilities and give the team an hour to solve the problem together. During team building activities, make sure that you encourage employees to avoid blaming each other for solutions that might not work well.
Depending on your employees’ varied personalities, there may be unnecessary conflicts and disputes that arise. Team building activities can help ease conflicts between employees by allowing them to become more accustomed to each other and also bond better with one another. To ease conflicts, the team building activities that you use should encourage coworkers to get to know one another on a personal level. One exercise is to get employees to share three interesting personal facts about themselves with the group. If conflicts in the office are a problem with your team, choose a neutral location, for your team building activities, such as a retreat space such as CYC Camps.
