Team building is the glue that holds the organization and its people together. Team building activities give people a new and fun way to connect. It bridges the gap between work and social life of people. Having a good bond with and between employees is important for building a positive and uplifting workplace.
In this article, we will explore team building, its activities and how it plays a major role in strengthening an organization and building a strong bond between its people.
- Creates a safe place :
Team building activities help to create a safe place in an organization. It gives rise to the element of trust between employees and trust works as a catalyst in building a strong bond. Having a safe place helps people to express themselves freely. Therefore, It also helps them to be open about their strengths and weaknesses, and to help each other accordingly. Good bonds are always supportive and this is why employees will feel safe, secure and importantly they will learn how to work as a team. As the famous quote stands, “Teamwork makes the dream work”
2. The Dreamwork :
Team building creates a safe place for everyone and when employees are open about their strengths and weaknesses, they don’t only help each other but they also learn in the process. Their weaknesses will soon turn into their strengths. This way the team can work more smoothly and this will increase productivity. They will also learn to appreciate each other, and share everything be it failures, victories, or even the spotlight. They will not hesitate to take risks, think out of the box, and bring in new ideas. This will increase their quality of work which in turn give rise to The Dreamwork.
3. Make work- FUN :
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, we have all heard about this quote, right? And we can all agree that work can sometimes be dull and monotonous. We all have been there. Team building activities spice things up by giving employees a well-deserved break and a new way to express themselves. Team building activities can be games, sports, or any recreational activity which brings people together. This gives rise to healthy competition and team spirit within employees which will soon reflect in their work. It’s genuinely a fun break from their line of work and when they return, they return with clear and fresh mindsets.
4. No more bad conflicts :
Conflicts and disagreements are bound to happen in a team, but not all conflicts are bad conflicts. They can be constructive criticism, some help to increase the quality of work and some bring new ideas to the table. Conflicts are not how it is being put out but they are also about how one takes it. In a safe place, people learn to be mindful of conflicts and when they know it’s coming from a team that they trust, they don’t feel bad about it, instead it motivates them.
To achieve all of this, team building is truly important. Team Building acts as a foundation for creating a safe, positive and productive work environment. This will keep an organization and its people happy and healthy.
