  • Mine Field
  • Eye Contact
  • Willow in the Wind

Games to Motivate

Studies show that healthy competition can motivate teams towards a common goal. When selecting which game to use, choose one that incorporates the skills they use on the job.

However, this has its share of difficulties as some may find the time to attend a social gathering outside work hours. Activities in general that provide an opportunity for team members to gather in one place can be an opportunity for team building.

Singing/ Karaoke

Almost everybody loves to sing, and karaoke is a fun way of helping the team grow closer. It can also be an excellent way to get rid of stress, which can also be a cause of friction within the team.

Dinner/Potlucks

Sharing food as a method of bonding is a human universal. Simple activities, such as shared lunches and coffee breaks together, are a way to share and enjoy the company. You can also plan a dinner out or potluck dinners. The important thing is that this experience should be enjoyed by the team.

Meetings

Meetings aren't precisely high the list in terms of fun or social gatherings. However, this can be an excellent opportunity to insert team building activities since all members are present. To lighten the mood, include some snacks to make the meeting more fun.

Module Eight: Common Mistakes When Team Building

Even the best-planned team building activities are not immune to mistakes. In this module, we look into the common errors when team building. By being aware of these common mistakes, you could create better team building activities and quickly spot them to correct course.

Allowing Cliques to Develop

Team building is supposed to be a shared experience among all team members. Cliques develop when some participants set themselves apart from the group. Signs of these include:

  • People only wanting to team or pair with each other
  • The same groups or teams consistently forming
  • The same person is consistently left out or left until last

Not Delegating Tasks

Failure to delegate tasks can undermine team building. Make it clear that delegating tasks is essential when working in groups.

Rewarding in Private/Criticizing in Public

Feedback is a critical element of team building. Pointing out mistakes should be done to help the team improve, but this should be done in private. Rewarding excellent performance must be done in public to inspire and motivate the team.

Disjointed Plans of Grandeur

The key to a successful team building plan is to make it useful and not complicated. Be sure to include training activities that are targeted towards your goal or objective.

Module Nine: Formatting a Team Building Plan

Like any other key initiative, team building needs a plan. In this module, we will discuss the importance of user input from your team, as well as your research. This is to keep your team informed of what's happening, what to expect, and what to do.

Define the Goal

The most important step when creating a team-building plan is to define the goal. Some common goals for team building include:

  • Improved interpersonal communication
  • Improved collaboration
  • Higher morale
  • Greater camaraderie
  • Integration of new team members into an existing team
  • Motivating the team

Consult Team Members

Your team members are the best source of information when planning team-building activities. This ensures that your team building activities are designed according to the needs of the team.

Research and Create Structure

Activities to Improve Working Together

Team building activities can help improve cooperation, collaboration, and other aspects of working together.

Activities to Build Communication

Games and formal training require teams to develop their communication skills to achieve their goals. This can be an excellent opportunity to test new training strategies outside the workplace.

Activities for Conflict Resolution

Activities that are designed to stimulate workplace conflicts provide an ideal setting to develop the team’s conflict resolution strategies. This can improve their negotiation skills that can be critical when resolving conflicts in the workplace.

Module Seven: Social Gatherings

In this module, we will discuss the role of social gatherings as another team building activity. However, this has its share of difficulties as some may find the time to attend a social gathering outside work hours. Activities in general that provide an opportunity for team members to gather in one place can be an opportunity for team building.

Singing/ Karaoke

Almost everybody loves to sing, and karaoke is a fun way of helping the team grow closer. It can also be an excellent way to get rid of stress, which can also be a cause of friction within the team.

Dinner/Potlucks

Sharing food as a method of bonding is a human universal. Simple activities, such as shared lunches and coffee breaks together, are a way to share and enjoy the company. You can also plan a dinner out or potluck dinners. The important thing is that this experience should be enjoyed by the team.

Meetings

Meetings aren't precisely high the list in terms of fun or social gatherings. However, this can be an excellent opportunity to insert team building activities since all members are present. To lighten the mood, include some snacks to make the meeting more fun.

Module Eight: Common Mistakes When Team Building

Even the best-planned team building activities are not immune to mistakes. In this module, we look into the common errors when team building. By being aware of these common mistakes, you could create better team building activities and quickly spot them to correct course.

Allowing Cliques to Develop

Team building is supposed to be a shared experience among all team members. Cliques develop when some participants set themselves apart from the group. Signs of these include:

  • People only wanting to team or pair with each other
  • The same groups or teams consistently forming
  • The same person is consistently left out or left until last

Not Delegating Tasks

Failure to delegate tasks can undermine team building. Make it clear that delegating tasks is essential when working in groups.

Rewarding in Private/Criticizing in Public

Feedback is a critical element of team building. Pointing out mistakes should be done to help the team improve, but this should be done in private. Rewarding excellent performance must be done in public to inspire and motivate the team.

Disjointed Plans of Grandeur

The key to a successful team building plan is to make it useful and not complicated. Be sure to include training activities that are targeted towards your goal or objective.

Module Nine: Formatting a Team Building Plan

Like any other key initiative, team building needs a plan. In this module, we will discuss the importance of user input from your team, as well as your research. This is to keep your team informed of what's happening, what to expect, and what to do.

Define the Goal

The most important step when creating a team-building plan is to define the goal. Some common goals for team building include:

  • Improved interpersonal communication
  • Improved collaboration
  • Higher morale
  • Greater camaraderie
  • Integration of new team members into an existing team
  • Motivating the team

Consult Team Members

Your team members are the best source of information when planning team-building activities. This ensures that your team building activities are designed according to the needs of the team.

Research and Create Structure

Learn from the best from researching what industry leaders and colleagues are doing in terms of team building. Select which team building activities are possible and practical for you to do.

Keep it Fun

Don't forget to keep your team building activities fun. Keep your team engaged and reap the full benefits of team building by making it exciting and fun.

Module Ten: Evaluate

Always make it a point to evaluate your team-building efforts. This is to give you an idea of what works and doesn't work. In this part of the Team Building for Managers Online Certificate course, we will discuss the different steps you should take when evaluating your team building activities and how it can serve the team and organization's needs.

  • Was the Goal Met?
  • Was the Team Building Cohesive?

  • How Can the Team Building Be Improved for Next Time?
