We’ve all been to team building events that were just plain boring, or worse, potentially threatened our willing participation. We’re also well aware that not every organisation or business can afford to bring in an expert to deliver these activities. We get it.
This article will, first, describe some of the key benefits of investing time and energy into building and nurturing your team. Then, we share our top ten team building activities which you can run yourself.
In short, the more time and energy you invest in building trusting and healthy relationships among your staff, the more you can amplify whatever your organisation is trying to achieve. And one of the best, and thankfully, most attractive ways to do this is presenting a series of carefully sequenced team building games and activities.
When you invest the time and energy to develop a strong team, you can expect to see these benefits:
Higher productivity because your staff will be more willing to work together;
Increased levels of motivation (and decrease in absenteeism;)
Higher levels of creativity & critical thinking; and
Improved communication which leads to fewer instances of misunderstandings.
Possibly one of the most famous team-building activities used by corporate trainers throughout the world. You’ll need a few props, but I promise you and your group love every minute they spend building their towers.
A passive group exercise that combines explores the power of a group of individuals working together.
We passionately believe that any motivated team leader can present these activities themselves.
And to help you look like a pro, we provide you with everything you need to know, including step-by-step instructions, video tutorials (with real groups,) leadership tips and important debriefing tips to squeeze the most value from your group’s experience.
