THE BENEFITS OF TEAM BUILDING
This is the era of the employee. The pandemic saw a dramatic shift in how we work and much reexamining of why we work.
In response to these adaptions and epiphanies, followed by “the great resignation,” employers are starting to prioritise work culture, and an effective way to demonstrate this is through team building. Benefits of team building include sounder problem-solving skills, improved innovation, enhanced career fulfillment, boosted cooperation, and group harmony.
Team building is a great way to show your employees that you care about them as people – not just workers. Yet, this feeds into a bigger holistic picture: better culture = better team = better work.
“It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.” –Napolean Hill
Team building is best done in a context vastly different from your work environment, for instance, involving your accounting firm in a cooking class. By choosing a distinct context, you allow your colleagues to showcase their unique skills, which not only helps them build their confidence but will enable you and others to spot unique opportunities that may improve your organisation – whether it be creating new roles, diversifying offerings, etc.
Innovation doesn’t come out of monotony; it stems from play and creativity. You can find true ingenuity by facilitating a space where your colleagues feel free to have fun, make mistakes, and take their egos out of the picture. The activity should be adequately structured for participants to experience the advantages of team building. The best team-building exercises are planned with the following attributes: inclusivity, clear expectations, openness, trust, vulnerable leaders, and a succinct but flexible structure.
