03 Jun Does Teambuilding equal a Success?
“Coming together is the beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success.”
Managers across the world will argue this point back and forth to no end. Ultimately We believe the answer is quiet simple, but first we need to ask ourselves a couple of questions; What do we mean by Team building and what do we mean by Success?
Let’s start with the easy one. Team building is defined as a philosophy of job design in which employees are viewed as members of interdependent teams instead of as individual workers. Team building refers to a wide range of activities, presented for improving team performance. Team building is pursued via a variety of practices, and can range from simple outdoor exercises to complex simulations and multi-day team building retreats designed to develop a team (including group assessment and group-dynamic games), usually falling somewhere in between.
Success on the other hand is defined as the achievement of something desired, planned or attempted.
Do activities designed for improving team performance help to achieve something desired, planned or attempted?
TeamWorking believe the desired outcome has always been the same, create a sound business with good processes and ultimately turn a profit. However the attitudes of and opportunities for the people behind that result has changed enormously.
A team that can work together will be successful and the best way to learn to work together is to understand and respect each others differences both strengths and weaknesses. That’s where team building comes in. A well structured team building event can act to reward and acknowledge performance while creating an opportunity to understand and appreciate each other. Let’s also not discount the benefit gained from having some fun with your work colleagues.
