Teams are needed because the world we live in requires constant experimentation, a continual response to changing conditions. In our exploration of new conditions and possibilities, we have to rapidly integrate new partners and different work disciplines. The team structure adapts most easily to changing conditions and has the greatest potential for creative solutions and new approaches to work challenges.
We provide a successful team development process that facilitates the development of a new team or the revitalization of an existing team. Whether your team is an ongoing workgroup or a special project based team of limited duration, you will rapidly increase its effectiveness with the use of these teamwork tools and skills.
And most importantly, we will explore the most important factor when putting a team together...personality. Personality conflicts are the number 1 reason teams fail. By understanding different personality types and how to communicate with each one, we are able to ensure a highly successful team.
The critical objectives needed for team building:
§ Seven factors that teams need to be high-performing
§ Best practices for a team leader, including skills to develop and lead a high performing team
§ The importance of clear goals, roles, and processes for conducting effective team meetings and leading productive teams
§ Team building stages and the tools and tasks needed to move through each stage
§ Teamwork tools that are used to align individuals to be as effective as team members
§ Team communication tools that develop positive interactions among team members
§ Tools for team problem-solving and goal attainment
Team Building Exercises
If communication in the workplace is poor or just needs a little boost, hands-on team building events provide a platform to jumpstart your efforts and improve results. Team building events provide fun ways to bond with your staff on their own; however, organizations see greater and longer lasting benefits when an event builds self-confidence as part of a larger strategy to accomplish specific goals.
Teams looking to boost communication in the workplace learn practical skills through our hands-on programs. Our activities require real teamwork, inter-team collaboration, negotiation, and compromise. Participants must communicate seamlessly, troubleshoot their designs, and find a perfect balance between uniqueness, functionality, and attention to detail. The techniques you learn can be applied directly to your work.
Our Team Building workshops are designed to be completed in 2-4 hours and may require a large indoor or outdoor space, use of multiple rooms, and the use of additional equipment provided by the organization such as tables and chairs, depending on which team building exercise is utilized.
