Choosing the Event for your Team
team building events have a proven track record for improving performance. as not only does it provide line managers with a key insight into the strengths and weaknesses of their staffs, but it also addresses specific problems that a team maybe experiencing in the workplace.
This is why it is important to choose the right team building event with care, as many have been described to address a specific problem, that a workplace team may be experiencing.
If your biggest issue is a morale issue, then a fun event may be what is needed to reduce stress levels, and to lift spirits, or an adrenaline fuelled event where each member of the team gets to do something that they would not normally do. The idea here is to reduce pressure from the workplace, and provide a good day out.
If on the other hand you have an underperforming team with no obvious reason as to why that is, or one where no bond has formed, you will want a team building event that forces the team to work as one to overcome a challenge. This has a proven track record of bonding the team together, and is a very popular choice among companies and organisations.
You may want to use an event that provides you an insight into how competitive your senior mangers are, and therefore you may organise one which pits them against one another. Time trial events may be useful for this.
The team building event that you choose, should reflect what is needed to strengthen the team. Though speeding around in an off-road jeep just seems like messing around for the day, a change as they say, is good as a rest.
