Whether you recently hired a bunch of new workers or you’ve noticed your existing team no longer works seamlessly together, it might be time to schedule some team-building activities to get everyone on the same page. You'll just need to do some prep work to ensure your whole team gets as much out of your scheduled team-building activities as possible.
Corporate Team Building
The first thing to do when planning a corporate team-building event is to consider the types of activities that will resonate with your staff and bring your employees together. In general, you can break downteam-building games for meetingsinto two broad groups: active and communication-oriented. Both types of activities involve movement and communication, but each focuses more on one or the other.
Here are some examples of active team-building endeavors:
How to Plan a Team-Building Event
To start planning your team-building event, you need to determine the results you want to accomplish.
Next, you will need to set your budget. That way, you'll know how much you can spend on the event location and any other supplies needed.
Once you determine your budget, it's important to find a venue that has adequate space for your chosen activities. It’s equally important that the facility has professional staff available to tend to your group.
After you book a host facility, you need to provide your team with an agenda so all participants are aware of the plans. Your agenda should include a schedule of events, including start and end times for each activity as well as the location where each team-building game will occur.
Remember — the key to a successful team building event is to ensure everyone who needs to be involved actually participates. Being physically present isn’t enough. The activities you plan should facilitate participation for employees who are comfortable with being social as well as those who are normally content to remain on the sidelines. There isn’t much point in planning a team building event if key players aren’t actively involved as the event unfolds.
