3 ways Naples Team Building Can Help Your Business
Make your next meeting or conference a success:
We’ve all been there… huge conferences where we feel like just a face in the crowd. Even though the conference planners did a great job with speakers and materials, it can still seem impersonal. Team building is a great option for breaking this mold and making every face in the crowd important. As the sales team from Boston Scientific discovered, even with 300 people, we were able to create an engaging and interactive environment that broke through these boundaries. Our professional facilitators were able to lead engaging discussions in smaller teams and then roll these insights into important take aways for the entire group. Best of all, participants enjoyed the entire conference more and attributed much of this to their team building experience.
Build alignment within your team and organization:
Have you ever felt like you were in a boat where everyone was rowing in a different direction? Alignment is one of the most critical dimensions of any team or organization. If you are not supporting one another and working toward common goals, then it’s very likely that you’re actually getting in each other’s way. But how do you address these issues when everyone is focused on protecting their own turf and blaming someone else? Team building can open that door. Rather than trying to directly discuss the “issue” at hand, team building can provide a safer alternative. Targeted activities can be used to simulate many of the dynamics seen at work, but the initial discussion is simply about how the group did at the exercise (a safe discussion that still focuses on critical skills). Through expert facilitation, this discussion then transitions back to work, and most teams discover that the dynamics are strikingly similar. But now that the topic has already been unwrapped, the discussion becomes much more open and balanced. Let team building help your team break down barriers and build alignment!
Develop your team’s emotional intelligence:
Emotional intelligence is one of the strongest predictors of professional success. Simply put, it’s the level of awareness you have about your own behaviors/perceptions and what you do with that knowledge, combined with your awareness and understanding of interpersonal dynamics and what you do with that knowledge. In essence, it’s your awareness of, and ability to manage your own behaviors and your impact on others. So if we know how important this is to our professional success, why not help our individuals and teams develop their emotional intelligence? Team building is a perfect tool for accomplishing this. Where else can you practice critical interpersonal skills and receive immediate feedback regarding their effectiveness? Where else can you practice new skills without risking a client or business? Where else can you work simultaneously on developing both individual and team skills? Team building and emotional intelligence are a powerful union for building teams and developing leaders!
