3 ways Greensboro Team Building Can Help Your Business
Develop stronger team and leadership skills:
Team building is not just about activity. By interjecting critical content and focusing on personal and professional development, team building becomes a powerful tool for transference of skills back into the workplace. Take for example the years of leadership training that we’ve been spearheading for the Evonik Corporation. Unlike many leadership programs, we incorporate team-building activities into the entire curriculum to ensure that participants have the opportunity to test, practice, and refine new skills before returning to work. Combining this with a structured planning and follow-up process helps ensure that skills are actually used rather than just talked about in class.
Break silos and develop a stronger organizational culture:
Organizational culture is a reflection of our shared values, beliefs, and assumptions that governs how we behave as an organization. These shared values develop over time and continually evolve along with the organization. Team building experiences are a great tool for understanding these cultural norms and to adjust them as needed. Just like the amazing associates at Honda Aircraft have demonstrated, when you intentionally evaluate and adjust your expectations of one another, you have the ability to directly impact your overall culture. But a critical component of this process is actually putting those norms into practice, which is exactly where team building comes into the picture. Team building exercises offer a safe opportunity to practice these new behaviors while gaining the support of others on the team.
Establish a team identity and develop group norms:
The real power of a team is when the combined group is more effective than the sum of its’ parts. But for this to happen, the team itself has to take on a life of it’s own. This means that the team has it’s own identity and that cooperation becomes more important than individual status. As a result, individuals are willing to extend themselves to help others, and the group goals take precedent over individual goals. This has been the basis of our work with the Elon University Leadership Fellows for the past 15 years. Each cohort of leaders is charged with impacting the overall campus community during their 4 years of enrollment. Individually their impact is clear, but collectively, their impact is dependent on their cohesion and alignment. Team building provides the necessary structure early in the development of the team to establish this alignment and to develop a sense of shared purpose.
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.
