Benefits of Teambuilding

Posted on: 2018-03-18 10:11:59 | Author: admin

The term “team building” has become a buzzword in recent years, and has many connotations. In terms of corporate development, team-building exercises are important not for the immediate experience of the activities performed by the team, but also for the group skills, communication, and bonding that result. The activity, be it an obstacle course or the Chocolate Challenge, is merely the means to the end: a high-impact learning experience. Team-building programmes provide realistic experiences that empower individuals to contribute to common goals. The success of most organizations depends on the ability of individuals to build effective teams. The main goals of team-building are to improve productivity and motivation.

Posted on: 2018-03-05 06:48:11 | Author: admin

Most experts in team building development agree that teams will go through five different stages. How fast a team moves through each stage will depend on the team members, their individual skills, the work they are expected to do, and the type of leadership available to the team. It takes time and effort but it is worth working through the 5 stages of team building development? Bruce Tuckman deemed the four main stages of team development in order as Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing. Later, as self-managed teams became common in business, he added a fifth stage of Adjourning/Transforming. Thomas Quick called the five stages for teams: Searching, Defining, Identifying, Processing, and Assimilating/Reforming.

What becomes clear if you look at these characteristics is that most of them are not the hard skills of industry or management expertise: most are attitudes rather than skills. Successful team players are defined by the way they relate to their colleagues, and the way in which they interact across a broad range of skills bases. In fact 80% of what makes a good team member is determined by these positive attitudes, and only 20% by the specific job skills they possess. So why does industry spend around 80% of its training budget on developing often short-lived skills which need updating on a regular basis? For any real value to...
