Doing Team Building Activities in Your Workplace
Working in an office or a call center agency could be extremely boring. Imagine your face almost sticking on the computer screen or talking with strangers the whole day. Boredom can sometimes kill a person inside and it can critically affect the work output itself. It can also develop into conflicts with co-workers. That is why Team Building Melbourne is chosen by different companies in order to cope up with its workers regarding this problem.
Why team building?
Team building is the most effective way to solve the problem in every office and workplace. With it, you will know your capabilities and you will learn to trust your officemates. Conflicts such as insecurity and self-doubt can also be removed.
With team building, you can also enhance your physical abilities and mental skills. One can develop their traits individually or by a group. Workers will also remember the effectiveness of collaboration and group effort and they will realize that working in groups is easier than working alone.
Company bosses mostly lead these kinds of events because they know that having cooperation within the workplace can greatly affect the job output of everyone.
What are the tips for successful team building?
In order to have successful Team Building Activities, the planner must set up a good location. It can be indoor or outdoor. I prefer outdoor spots because it will give a new environment for the participants. Of course, they need fresh air and not the ones that come from air conditioning units.
Groupings MUST be critically organized. Do not let the participants pick their own group mates because they will surely not go with the person they dislike. It will create competition between them and it is not good. Unity, not competition, is one of the main goals of an effective team building activity, so grouping them with their ‘enemies’ can be a lot better.
Always remind the participants everything about cooperation and leadership. Have rotations on the leaders to be fair. One might like to be a leader but is too shy to ask for it. Every participant must show their full potential to know more about themselves so rotation is also needed.
If a boss, one should carefully observe every participants feeling and action. Some might be unprofessional and take losses personally, which in end could badly affect the overall activity. Be mindful of the conflicts and solve them properly.
Now if you are a leader in your group, ALWAYS be open to other suggestions coming from your own members. If you don’t accept mistakes and other ideas, then you are a tyrant, not a leader. Also, encouraging your team mates can help you work properly, even after a loss. That is what leadership all about.
Lastly, if you are a member, follow what your leaders say if it is right. But remember that you are open to give any recommendations to them. If working with an ‘enemy,’ set aside your emotions and be professional. With that, you might overcome the conflicts between you.
Don’t forget all these tips because it is important for effective Team Building Activities. Now if you seemed to feel struggles in your company, don’t hesitate to think of having this kind of event.
