Ask people what they think “team building” is and you get a wide variety of answers. Some feel that it’s getting better acquainted, others talk about building trust, still others say “bonding” or learning how to solve problems as a group. And everyone agrees that there is an element of fun. In reality, team building is all of the above and more. A good team building exercise creates positive interaction among a group of people, and in doing so enhances their ability to work effectively as a team when they return to the workplace. Interaction can be working together on a unique project (example: boat building and racing), playing games like Team Olympics, putting their heads together to solve a murder mystery, helping each other through a ropes course, playing paintball or flight simulation games in teams, camping, white water rafting; the possibilities are practically endless.
In order to narrow down the possibilities and make a final decision, here are the things you should consider:
- Group make-up (male/female ratio, age, occupation(s), fitness level, handicaps?)
- Size of the group (some types of activities are limited to smaller groups)
- Time frame for event (a 30 minute activity is a lot different from 3 hours)
- Budget (events range from $500 to $15,000 and up).
- Meeting theme tie-in?
- Does every person need to participate equally?
- Is this a competition where a team will “win” and others will not (many activities can be structured where everyone wins– or has the potential to reach a specific goal).
- Time of day (does the activity happen first thing in the morning, during or after lunch, during dinner, after dinner?— this does make a difference)
- Has your group done any team building in the past, and if so, what did they do–and what was the result? (You don’t want to duplicate– and you always want to do better).
- Do you want a debriefing session, and can the team building company do this?
The corporate team building companies that you are considering should ask you these questions, not simply try to rent you equipment or sell you games.
What’s available in corporate team building activities is only limited by the imagination.
The bottom line is this: team building comes in all kinds of forms at a wide variety of costs. It enhances a meeting by capitalizing on the fact that people are physically present– all in the same place. So you have a fabulous opportunity to get them interacting; something that cannot happen by teleconferencing or by video conferencing. Furthermore, it makes sense if you structure a team building event to tie in with the goals of your meeting so that it has some lasting effect. Team building is MORE than just entertainment, but if you position it that way, you’ll be missing out on its real value.
