TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES BRISBANE

You need to organise Team Building Activities Brisbane.

What do you do now?

If you have been tasked with organising a team activity you may wonder where to start as there as so many options and so many companies that run team building activities in Brisbane. It is therefore easy to get overwhelmed. You want to make sure that you pick the right activity for your team and their goals and objectives.

Firstly you also need to consider all team members when selecting an activity. For instance – do you have some colleagues that are less mobile than others? Do you have a team of mostly men/women? Are your team introverts or extroverts?

However, people do not want to participate in an activity where they are made to feel silly in front of their work colleagues. Above all, they want to have fun, get to know people better and have something to talk about when they return to work. In addition you want people to say “I had a great time – that was the best team building activity ever, I can’t wait for the next one.”

Therefore how can you make sure you achieve this? As a result of the many years of experience we have a process that we believe will set you on the right path. So keep reading to further understand the best approach for selecting the best Team Building Activity Brisbane. We have also included Team Building Activities Brisbane ideas to get you started. Further inspiration for organising Team Building activities can be found in this article – 7 ideas for organising team building activities

Why is it important to choose the right activity?

What is the purpose of Team Building Brisbane?

Team Building activities are generally run for many different reasons, however the end result is often the same. For instance getting to know your colleagues better, how they work and how you work with them. As a result this can have a huge impact on working effectively and cohesively when you are all back in the office. This then leads to increased productivity and also overall work satisfaction.

We are often asked:

How can I convince my Boss that we need a team building activity? 

What should I say when they ask me what are the benefits of Team Building activities?

Team building events Brisbane for instance provide opportunities for learning in a fun, stress-free environment. However team building is not just for the individuals who are part of the team, but for the business as a whole. Colleagues are better able to understand each others strengths and weaknesses. In addition key learning objectives that are focussed on during the team building activity can then be transferred to roles and tasks back at work.  

Similarly during Team Building Activities many people step out of their comfort zones and take on roles, such as leadership, that they do not do in their normal work environment. As a result this can be an eye opener for Managers to see people in a different light. Furthermore this can sometimes be  good or bad. For instance you may find that a quiet worker really has a lot to contribute – or you may find that a leader takes total control and does not listen to anyone in their team, either way as a result you will learn a lot about your people.

To summarise effective team building means more engaged employees which in turn creates a better culture and ultimately increases productivity. Further information as to what is the purpose of Team Building can be found in an article by Mind Tools where they discuss the importance of making Team Building an everyday priority – Team Building Exercises and Activities

In conclusion the most important step when organising a corporate team building activity is to be clear what objectives you want to achieve from your event. Therefore even for fun Team Building Brisbane events you should include key learning objectives.

Some examples of key learning areas that team building activities can focus on include:

Team Building Activities


Time Management

 

Most Team Building Activities will put people under time pressure and therefore force them to prioritise tasks. This in turn teaches people to prioritise how to get more done in less time. Further it also teaches skills such as goal setting and other key time management techniques.

Team Building Activities


Communication

 

Effective communication is critical. Therefore every team building activity will either succeed or fail based on the quality of communication between team members. As a result it is important that they give great feedback on how effectively your team communicate, listen, and work together. 

Team Building Activities


Delegation

 

Most team building activities are like a mini project and will require people to delegate clear roles and priorities. However they can provide great feedback on the leadership and management of key individuals in your team. 

Team Building Activities


Collaboration

 

When you are choosing a team building activity you can choose an option where everyone is working together in a collaborative, instead of competitive, environment. This in turn will give you great insight into the levels of cooperation in your team. 

Team Building Activities


Creativity

 

There are a lot of team building activities that require creativity and innovation to figure out the solution and be successful. They can therefore give great insight into the more creative members of your team are and how they contribute to great outcomes. 

Team Building Activities


Leadership

 

Team Building Activities create great opportunities for leadership to emerge which can furthermore give you great insight into the natural leaders in your team and how they influence other team members.

Team Building Brisbane

Some harmless competition, for instance, can be great in your team building activity. Having a desire to be the best could be good for your business – however you also want to make sure that collaboration and team work are also key goals.
