3 ways Asheville Team Building Can Help Your Business
Develop stronger teams and more effective leaders:
High performance teams don’t just happen, they’re built from the ground up. They require clarity of mission, alignment, trust, communication, and strong leadership. Even with all of the right ingredients, the team or the leader may simply not gel. Team building is one of the most useful and powerful tools for helping teams develop and for maintaining their level of performance. Just as the managers and teams from Evonik Stockhausen, Inc discovered, having opportunities to actually work together in a feedback rich environment moves the team forward much more quickly than just talking about it in a conference room. Team building not only helps you develop as a team, but allows you to test, practice, and refine the skills necessary to continue operating as a high performance team.
Integrate new members and leaders into your team:
Every time someone joins or leaves a team, the entire dynamic of that team can quickly change. The greatest risk here is that productivity usually drops during times of change, which most organizations cannot afford. Consider how long it takes to integrate a new member into your team, and how much more challenging that is if that new member happens to be the new leader of the team. Team building is a valuable tool to speed this process and to rebuild the alignment that is critical for teams to be effective. Take for example our friends at Levelor, who were dealing with both new team members and a new leader due to a recent reorganization. Team building enabled them to break through many of their assumed barriers, establish new group norms, clarify expectations, and build a strong foundation that would ensure future success.
Bring your business topics to life:
How many times have you sat in a meeting listening to presentation after presentation only to leave remembering none of it? In today’s world, we are bombarded with so much information that if we want people to remember something, we need to take a different approach. We need to not only make it relevant, but to reinforce the message using every mode of learning as possible. Team building is an interactive training tool that accomplishes just that. As an example, we worked with the Maersk Inc Agency to reinforce the messaging delivered during their meeting. Prior to the session, we worked closely with their leaders to identify the critical messages, why they were important, current examples of each, and how they should look in the future. Armed with this information, we were able to develop a series of activities that mirrored their work challenges, reinforced their messaging, and illustrated what needs to change in the future. By hearing, seeing, doing, and being a part of the conversation, people walked away with a memorable understanding of the topics.
Team Building Should be about Outcomes
- Alignment: Getting teams rowing in the same direction, toward common goals with clear expectations and a communication process that accommodates change.
- Assimilation: Building common ground and helping everyone feel part of the team by discovering shared vision and values.
- Experience: Helping increase awareness, challenge your perspective, and establish a common history that everyone can draw upon.
- Development: Enabling people to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses while creating opportunities to test, practice, and refine new behaviors.
- Collaboration: Creating an open and trusting environment where everyone is engaged, contributes, and feels valued by the team.
