Tips For Building Your Team To Greatness

Teamwork makes the dream work. It is cheesy, but ubiquitous, and for good reason. Cooperation can work wonders, regardless of what kind of organization of you’re running. To help you with your corporate team building efforts, here are some tips.

Create a common vision and goal.

  • People work best when they’re all aiming for the same goal; the same vision. As such, you’ll want to spend some time getting the team together in order to figure out where your team wants to create, what they want to achieve and where they want to be. Does the team adhere to a single, clear and achievable vision and goal?

Clarify roles, and the responsibilities that come with them.

  • One of the main issues organizations run into is when people don’t have a clear grasp of their individual roles and whatever responsibilities they entail. Telling people what they should do, what they have to do; their roles and responsibilities, can do a lot in helping your team achieve your common goals and visions. Clarify when their roles overlap with other team members and team departments.

Keep learning going.

  • People change, people grow, constantly. From an organizational standpoint this means that the team’s needs changes based on what’s happening, meaning that the managers and owners need to stay up to date with the staff, constantly communicating not just to deliver tasks, but to hear what the staff needs in order to improve corporate team building efforts and to make sure that what’s learned from such efforts stick.

Be fun and engaging.

  • Just because it’s got the word corporate in it doesn’t mean corporate team building has to boring. Quite the contrary, in fact; you want something that’s fun and engaging, something that’ll get your team hooked and working together. Think about what would work best for your team and its members? What topics are priority to them? If need be, bring in an experience facilitator to help you.

Take it out of the office.

  • One of the most common things you see when it comes to team building efforts is someone heading outside the office. There’s value to this, as the office can be distracting and less-than-motivating; bring them someplace fresh and inspiring, someplace that lets them connect to each other. This could be a formal setting, different from the usual surroundings; one clear of the usual distractions of a busy office.
