When it comes to choosing the right team building tasks for your people, you need to know exactly what you want everyone to get out of the occasion. If the event is just for fun or a reward, then the actual team building tasks only matter in as far as everyone attending should enjoy them. But, if you want to concentrate on certain areas then different team building tasks will allow for this.
Most companies would like to improve communication between its employees. Good communication is at the heart of every business and without things would quickly disintegrate into chaos.
Almost all of our structured team building events rely on communication skills to achieve the set goals. But those where problem solving features highly are particularly good for this purpose.
Getting a team of people together to discuss the best way forwards and who would do best assigned to each role is paramount – get this wrong and the team loses the challenge.
Sometimes however, problem solving isn’t always logical. Thinking outside of the box and creative thinking are useful skills for anyone to have, regardless of what business they are in.
Creative team building tasks take people out of their comfort zones and get them to look at things in a whole new perspective. This can then be taken back into the workplace for people to come up with new and innovative ways of doing their own roles.
Trust and Confidence
Trust and confidence are vital elements of a good team. Without these two firmly in place, bitterness and resentment can quickly take hold. Music and dance themed team building tasks need people to be able to trust one another and have confidence not just in their own abilities, but that of the group in general.
Increasing the confidence of an individual by getting them to do something truly unique and different will help them to realise that anything is possible if you have your team behind you.
