Winston Salem Team Building & Training Corporate Team Building & Training in Winston Salem
As the second largest city in the North Carolina Piedmont Triad, Winston Salem is a great location for business meetings, conferences, and corporate team building. Being centrally located between Charlotte and Raleigh North Carolina make it the perfect choice for dispersed teams. To take advantage of what Winston Salem has to offer, consider using team building to get more out of your next meeting or conference.
3 ways Winston Salem Team Building Can Help Your Business
Bring energy and alignment to your meeting or conference:
Face it, sitting in a chair for 8 hours a day during a conference can get old quickly! Team building exercises are a great way to inject both energy and focus into your meeting or conference. As our friends at Reynolds America in Winston Salem have experienced, our team building exercises are specifically designed to reinforce your messaging and to re-engage the participants in your session. Remember, team-building exercises are not the goal; it’s what they can accomplish that’s important. Our goal at LTI is to deliver results, not to deliver programs!
Develop a powerful mentor protégé program:
Ever team should be continually asking themselves “How can we better develop our internal leaders,” and a strong mentoring program is a powerful tool for doing just that. But mentoring (and coaching) is not a skill that comes naturally to most people. So how do you develop those skills? Our approach is to combat this from both directions. An example of this is our work with the Sara Lee Corporation in Winston Salem. First, we provide some initial training for the mentors, but this is quickly followed with combined programs for both the mentors and protégés at Tanglewood Park, which is also in Winston Salem. By training both roles simultaneously, they are better able to “help each other” in their respective roles, and actually develop a relationship that helps drive the program forward. Best of all, the team building exercises we use during training gives them first-hand experience implementing the process along with expert feedback from our staff.
Help combat assumptions by understanding personality:
Have you ever wondered why it’s so hard for some people to understand your point of view? Well chances are they actually see things entirely different than you do. Exploring personality is one way of helping us better understand these differences and how they impact us as leaders and teammates. Myers Briggs (MBTI) is one tool that we frequently used with mid and upper-level leadership from Hanes Incorporated in Winston Salem. The MBTI provides insights into how people interact, make decisions, and process information. But what is even more important is seeing these traits actually play out in real time during targeted team building exercises. This experiential connection is what really helps leaders translate concepts into action. Let team building be your transformational experience.
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.
