What Makes a Teambuilding Awesome?
Teambuildings are undeniably the best choice of motivating and engaging employees to collaborate and work better together. Think a good dose of effective planning, great communication, and problem-solving skills.
But if you want your teambuilding to turn out amazing and be remembered for months (and years) to come, be sure to consider the three ‘A’ elements below.
Teambuilding needs to involve everyone in the team to be effective and boost team member interaction and engagement. If the ultimate goal is to unite and strengthen the team, the choice of activity should be inclusive and open to everyone.
Trust and comfort are essential, as well as the active interest in the teambuilding as opposed to forceful collaboration imposed by management. Make sure the team approves of the activities and can fully participate and immerse in the experience.
Choose an activity that not only unites the team but has an element of interest and enjoyment too. Survivor challenges, amazing races, or sports games are ideal to keep teams together and even encourage them to rise above their comfort zones.
Beyond Teambuilding pride ourselves in creating events, activities and challenges that push any team past mediocrity, allowing them to express themselves in a way that unleashes a team synergy that is often lying dormant. Our teambuilding is done in two definitive ways; formal and informal. Both have merit and are used to create the specific objectives of your particular team’s needs.
A Laughing Attitude
The most successful team building exercises provide a sense of humour and excitement While staying focused on the importance of collaboration and bringing team members together, the chosen activity must also have an element of fun to keep spirits high and team members focused on their task.
The ability to have fun and laugh while learning can make a big difference to your teambuilding results. Treasure and scavenger hunts, singing, drumming, funny games and so on can be very effective in enforcing a positive attitude and unite the team.
Teambuilding facilitators have the most important role in inspiring and engaging the participants and must convey trust, confidence, and experience. An effortless interaction between team members and facilitators goes a long way in ensuring the success of the teambuilding activity and the training programme.
Bonus tip: Avoid winning at all cost! Keep in mind the goal you want to achieve with the chosen teambuilding activities and make it exciting and fun for all participants. That is what successful teambuilding is all about.
Successful teams do what other teams are not prepared to do! Are you ready?
