Corporates/Groups Team Building
It is the process of turning a group of individual employees into a cohesive team, a group of people organized to work together interdependently and cooperatively to meet the needs of their customers by accomplishing their purpose and goals.When individuals with similar interest, attitude, and taste come together to work for a common objective, a team is formed.
Every individual contributes equally and performs his level best to meet the team targets and achieve the organization’s goal. Team members strive hard to live up to the expectations of others and successfully accomplish the assigned task.
A team cannot do well unless and until each and every member is focused and serious about his responsibilities. For every team member, his team should come first and everything else later. Personal interests must take a backseat.
Every individual must feel motivated to perform his level best. Never impose things on anyone; instead, the individuals must take the initiative on their own. They should come forward and accept the challenge.
Team Building comes in four different types, and understanding each type is important for you to use the appropriate approach for your team with regard to the skill you want them to develop, as well as the size of the group that will undergo the activity. It will then be easier for you to determine which task will have the most effect after understanding the goals you wish to attain from the team building.
•Personality-Based Team Building: This also comes in different forms. But the most common of which is the use of a personality questionnaire which will not only teach about the personality of each individual but also about the personality of other members of the team. This information can then be used for discussing different action steps and working relationships within the company.
•Activity-Based Team Building: This comprises a fulfillment of perplexing tasks, most often in an outdoor set up, such as mountain climbing, trekking and a lot more. Teamwork from all members of the team is required in these activities, for them to succeed with the challenges. Also, the success and the lessons that they have seen and achieved in the course of those activities can be brought into the office thus creating new relationships between the team members.
• Skills-Based Team Building Skills: This engages team members in a workshop developing certain skills, such as the positive reception to criticism, dealing with conflict, effective team meetings and more. With the development of these skills during the activities and workshops, it is possible to create a more effective team if the skills acquired are applied in the workplace.
•Problem Solving-Based Team Building: This is frequently executed at an outside event but can also be applied to an indoor challenge. This type of team building is aimed at helping the team unravel and solve certain problems given by an outside facilitator. The members of the group will then work together to identify the challenges and possible solutions while trying to work as excellently as possible in solving the problem.
