Team Building Activities: ‘TIS THE SEASON TO BOND!

Christmas is the perfect time to bond as a team but it is also the perfect time to build as well. Everyone is generally in a festive mood and looking forward to some time off work at this time of year. This is also a time when most teams will get together socially for a Christmas party or social function. For some businesses, the workload may start to reduce in the lead up to Christmas, which means there are fewer pressures on employees in the workplace overall. The worries and stresses of work get forgotten as employees kick back and start to relax, leaving the hard work of the year behind them. Employees may also have more time to chat with colleagues and get to know people a little better, which is great for team bonding. Think Team Building Activities! READ MORE

Corporate Team Building: ALL IN THE PREPARATION

Think about Corporate Team Building events you have attended. Was there an expectation as part of the Corporate Team Building event that your team had to complete a pre-screening session prior to the event? Was it a requirement of the training that a questionnaire or interview had to be completed in order to fully understand what your team’s current challenges and issues were and what you and they hoped to achieve from the Corporate Team Building event?

Team Activities Melbourne: SPOT THE DIFFERENCE!

Let’s compare team building to team bonding. What’s the difference? Do you know the difference? There is a difference and whilst both have their place in developing and strengthening relationships, only one will truly build trust, help your team to communicate effectively, manage conflict resolution and identify the potential leaders of the future. Only one enables you to take the skills and experience that have been taught in an external environment and transfer these back to the workplace and that is because one drops you into a situation where you have to think on your feet, act quickly and communicate effectively.

Once a year? Once a quarter? Never? What are those I hear you ask? Who has those? Is that something we should be doing and if so, why? Think Team Building Activities Melbourne. READ MORE

Team Building Melbourne: COLLABORATION WINS THE DAY!

Think about the best team you have ever worked in. What was it about that team that made it great? What’s the first thing that comes into your head when you think about that team? How did that team make you feel? Why did it make you feel the way it did? Perhaps you felt valued and important, a cog in a wheel that was successful when you all collaborated and worked together. You maybe also felt committed and motivated and bounced out of bed every morning feeling energized and excited about going to work. Think Team Building Melbourne. READ MORE

Corporate Team Building: HOW TO BOOST ROI WITH TEAM BUILDING

Corporate Team Building: HOW TO BOOST ROI WITH TEAM BUILDING

Why do businesses do what they do? Why do entrepreneurs do what they do? Why does anyone do what they do? Generally, it is because there is an interest, a dream or a passion behind the wheel of the idea, the innovation, the goal or the objective. What do people hope to achieve from their dream or their passion and do they really know the answer to that? If we were to sit Richard Branson down and ask him what he hoped to achieve all those years ago when he started Virgin Airlines I wonder what his answer would be. READ MORE
