So which would be right for you and your team?
Setting The Objective
Just like any operational planning, you need a desired outcome to configure your teambuilding event. Are you looking at discovering individual employees working characteristic? Would you want to develop leadership skills for potential employees or perhaps its just a let your hair down session for the team to destress. Once you have decided on a desired objective, planning for your teambuilding activity would be much clearer.
Know Your Participants
When we meet our clients to discuss about their teambuilding events, we make it a point to get a good picture of who are the participants. Age range, gender mix, their positions in the company and whether they are locals would help us recommend the right teambuilding programs.
The trickiest audience to organise a teambuilding program for are the Senior Managements. You are talking about experienced professionals who has been in the business arena for at least 20 years. They are the ones who drive mega-corporations through with sound business strategy and the last thing they need is a Teambuilding Facilitator being all philosophical with them.
So instead of telling them what they know, we facilitate the teambuilding session and further reinforce what they know with our programs.
What this translate to you as an organiser is to feed us the right information so we can customise the ideal session for you.
Reward the Team
At the end of the day, a teambuilding program will only be successful if the teams are enjoying themselves.
So an indoors teambuilding session can be arranged at a comfortable venue and fitted with a deserving lunch would surely raise the moral of the team. If you are having an outdoors teambuilding session, make sure to have adequate chilled drinks prepared for the team.
With these added comfort, the participants can fully enjoy the day out of office and be ready to learn and receive from the session.
