eam building events are often a good way for your personnel to know one another, work seamlessly together and communicate clearly. However, numerous Team building events end up being a waste of time and

resources due to lousy planning or inferior execution. To help guarantee Team building success, here are some things to remember. Choose an activity that is beneficial to your team - One way to make sure the success of your Team building activity is to have a specific purpose. To obtain the results you desire, you have to match your goal to what activities you will have for that event. Apart from being relevant, activities should not be uninteresting and hackneyed so that everyone will take part readily. One interesting option that you can try is a bicycle team building activity. As with other activities, this activity will help participants learn effective communication skills and new workflow systems that they can employ at work. You could make your Team building activity more meaningful by offering the bicycles you have made to your chosen charity. That way, you not just create a considerable positive change in your business but also to the local community. Plan for the event - Come up with a schedule of activities and know the materials necessary for the event. Reserve the venue in advance too, or if you wish to carry out the Team building within your workplace, set up the room that you will use. Anticipate potential issues and make contingency plans for these. Explain the event - If staff know why you are carrying out the activity, there is a greater chance that they will be more receptive to the activity. To do this, give an outline of the activity rules, steps, and goals at the beginning of the activity. Be sure that your team understands these, too.

Reinforce the learning with meaningful activities at work - If the Team building activity doesn't have a follow up in the workplace, your participants may simply forget what they learned. To reinforce the learning on the job, show anything the team made during the activity back in the office. It might also be effective to make reference to the activity and the lessons learned there while you are mentoring, giving feedback, or having staff meetings. Alternatively, you may ask personnel in your next meeting to talk about what impact the activity has had on them.

At the end of the day, a Team building activity is only a structured opportunity for your workers to socialize and learn to work more effectively together.
