Team building doesn't have to be a disaster. You can do some basic things to build stronger teams and enjoy the benefits of bringing people together
There are many organizations that have discovered they can keep their teams happy and healthy all year long by implementing an ongoing team building program. Think of the following ideas as you design an approach that works for you.
Do You Have a Team Building Plan?
Decide 0beforehand at what time and how frequently the meetings will take place, what will transpire, what activities you have planned, who will facilitate and who will schedule and remind people to attend.
Everyone is Welcome
Nothing ruins the sense of team cohesiveness as quickly as leaving someone out because they are deemed “difficult.” This team building process is universally inclusive because everyone gets to participate. I highly encourage agencies to consistently include top management along with other staff.
Schedule for Success
Schedule sensibly. Set yourself up for success by scheduling meetings during calmer times when people can actually think and participate. I recommend holding one-hour meetings weekly on a regular, ongoing schedule that everyone is aware of.
Try these ideas and you’ll be on your way to enjoying the benefits of team building which include more productive employees and a more enjoyable workplace.
