Corporate team building events sometimes have a bad reputation for being tedious getaways with your coworkers that your boss requires of you. However, the reality is that they work to bring teams of all sizes into better working relationships and increase productivity, usually in a fun and relaxing way. Some of the main ways that these events help teams is by breaking the work routine and getting people out of the office while promoting individual learning and growth. You can tailor these events to fit the needs of your team including location and duration.


Break the Routine


Team building exercises can help break the monotony that comes with doing the same job, in the same way, every day. This can give your employees a much needed break and help raise productivity back up. Even a one-day activity can help shake up the office in a good way, especially if that day is spent learning how to work better as a team. Not only can this type of activity give your team a change of pace, it can also help you learn to work better together and escape the monotony for good. Not only can the activities during these events be fun and challenging, they can lead to insights which can make team work more engaging on a daily basis.


Learn and Grow


Corporate team building is about learning new skills and growing as a team and as an individual. You and your team members will learn more effective ways to communicate and work together while determining what your individual strengths and weaknesses are. One of the key features of team building is to let go of the feeling of competing with your team and start working as one. This means letting go of the need to be right, the need to judge and the need to protect the ego. Once your team has relaxed or kicked out these needs, true communication, learning and growth can happen.


Get Out of the Office


Not only can you build your team up with these sessions, you can usually do so in the setting of your choice. This means that the coach can come to your office, to a hotel conference center or even to an outdoor venue. This change of atmosphere can do wonders to lift the spirits of your team and put you in the mood to learn and grow. Sometimes, just the change of setting will bring out different strengths of your team members and highlight ways that you can work better together. You can even turn this event into a weekend getaway for the whole team.


Corporate team building can take your company’s productivity up to the next level. You can see projects getting done better and faster as well as interpersonal conflicts decreasing. This is because these exercises focus on working as a team instead of trying to work against each other. You can tailor these events to the size of your group and how long of a workshop you want to participate in. You can also bring the coach to a location of your choosing and set the right tone for your group.
