How can teambuilding help your team build?
Teambuilding when implemented properly, can be an effective tool that does exactly what its name implies… help build your team.
Collins Dictionary uses many examples on how the word “build” can be used as a verb… we have gone one step further to relate these examples to teambuilding.
“If you build something, you make it by joining things together”
Teambuilding can help join people together and work in collaboration. After completing team building activities, participants get to know and learn about their team members and how best to work together to achieve a common goal.
“If people build an organisation, a society, or a relationship, they gradually form it”
When relationships between employees are strong, they are better able to communicate, work together to problem solve and manage conflicts. Teambuilding activities allows colleagues to socialise together and make friends in a fun environment.
“To build someone’s confidence or trusts means to increase it gradually”
Putting employees into situations where they are forced out of their comfort zone can help build trust by encouraging team members to improve communication and cohesiveness. Teambuilding can help break down barriers and improve people’s confidence by making people problem solve, interact and share ideas to achieve a specific goal.
“If you build on the success of something, you take advantage of this success in order to make further progress”
Teambuilding can help build team’s morale in a work place and motivate employees to bring their job to the next level. Teambuilding activities provide recognition and reward for team members when someone succeeds in an activity, this results in individuals becoming more confident within their team and boosts their motivation.
