Team Building Melbourne: 5 KEY FACTORS TO A SUCCESSFUL TEAM BUILDING
Building and developing teams that can understand each other and collaborate effectively make significant differences to any company’s bottom line – higher retention rates, higher levels of satisfaction, and increased quality of work. Real team building events should provide effective, long-term results on team development, more so than conventional team building activities such as cooking classes or wine tastings.
- EXPERIENTIAL CHALLENGES THAT ADDRESS REAL-WORLD WORKPLACE ISSUES
Challenges should be real but when served in a game form they provide opportunities for your staff to practice essential skills that can then transfer to the workplace. Working under the pressure of time, they’ll have to use the best of their skills in communication, leadership, and conflict resolution – creating mutual success both at an event and at work.
- SAFER OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPERIMENT AND GO OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Make sure your planned team building event has got plenty of opportunities for your staff to try different approaches in a fun & relatively lower-stress environment. Mistakes and missteps are okay here – at least you’ve learned something new!
- GAMES CUSTOMISED TO THE NEEDS OF YOUR ORGANISATION
No team building event is one-size-fits-all. Each event should cater to the specific challenges and opportunities of your workplace – helping your staff see issues from a fresh perspective and gain insight on resolving them for greater success.
- RELATIONSHIPS-BASED TEAM FORMATION
The planning phase of your event should involve an assessment process. That will make sure the groups are formed to solve the problems that are relationship-based rather than task-based. Your staff can better understand each other and the way they work – building stronger relationships that continue back in the office.
- DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY FOR EXPERIENCE-BUILDING AND ASSESSMENTS
It’s very rare but there are some team building companies that are equipped with the latest technology to provide not just an innovative event experience that’s easily accessible using modern smartphones – it also has the ability to track both an individual’s and a team’s performance, gaining invaluable data and generating insights that can help with further assessment processes at work.
