What team building activities are most effective?

Finding the right team building activities that are also engaging and effective is a stressful, difficult assignment. Most team building solutions gets chosen based on time available and budget. Which explains why they fail so often. Teams keep having their time wasted with silly events, so now a third of participants start from “no team building please!”.  You end up in a no-win situation  

The Solution

You need to understand 3 things to find an effective team building activity. And they are NOT time available or budget! You want to know:  

  1. What does the team need/want to get out of it? 
  2. How will the team building activity build the team? Ask the vendor about the path to actual value for the team. How will the team exceed goals after?
  3. What does the decision maker value? How committed are the decision makers to supporting the team to grow, work differently and exceed goals?

Change the Way You Work

You want more than a team building event. If it’s a one-off event, then be careful that it isn’t another waste of time. Choose a solution that allows each team member to participate fully and make contributions to the team that help the team exceed goals faster and easier. Participant-driven events put the team members in the driver seat creating accountability and learning outcomes that last. Choose a solution that measures actual results.
