Finding Ways To Keep Up With Events

Are Team Building Activities Important?

You may leave that organization without meeting or even interacting with you colleagues on a one-on-one basis. When that opportunity comes, because, in most organizations it is usually twice a year, utilize it properly and you shouldn’t shy off. These activities may include, but not limited to; problem solving, communication, decision making, adaptability or planning and trust activities, so for each topic you come up with something related to the topic, for instance if it is communication activity, we could have ‘truth and lie challenge’ this will ensure each team member participates.

Team building is supposed to be fun and at the same time challenging. In team building you get a chance to have fun at workplace, laugh, learn, enjoy and yield huge results. Team members are hence able to manage each other’s strengths and weaknesses as they learn to work together.

A team cannot be a team if it is just one person involved. The leader then organizes their members so that each team member gets a chance to participate. This is a time you get to interact with people in the organization that perhaps you will never get the chance, the more you interact the more confident you become.

This is because team members have already gotten a chance to share, they no longer fear each other, no one feels superior or inferior. That help you build long lasting relationship and trust among your members. By each team member being responsible the activity will run very smoothly and the team will be able to cover all the challenges they are assigned in good time. If you are in an organization that has given you that opportunity, you are able to gain respect for that organization.

It is during team building activities that the organizational culture is reinforced, there can also be an ice breaker segment where each team member is asked to say any organizational culture they feel motivates them and one that they feel should be reviewed. Team building activities can also be used by top management to focus on results. Each and every team member gets a chance to give their view on a problem challenge given. Team building activity challenges help you learn from each other and motivate one another. For instance, you can come up with an organization’s Facebook Challenge, papers with just pictures and now you ask the team members to identify the name and the role of each and every picture, so don’t be stuck it is all about thinking critically when it comes to team building activity challenge.
