TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES CANBERRA

You need to organise a Team Building Activity in Canberra.

What do you do now?

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

So 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. Therefore keep reading to further understand the best approach for selecting the right activity for team building Canberra.

Why is it important to choose the right activity?

What is the purpose of Team Bonding - Team Building Canberra?

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? 

Team building activities in Canberra 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.  A blog by Sodexo reinforces the benefits of Team Building in their article on Rewards, recognition and the benefits of team building activities. 

They discuss that businesses are moving away from competitive environments to collaborative and co-operation, and as part of this change more companies are undertaking regular team building activities.

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

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 blog by MindTools – Making Team Building an Everyday Priority.

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 fun team building activities Canberra should include key learning objectives.

Some examples of key learning areas that team building activities Canberra 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 Canberra

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.

Huff Post writes on 5 Steps to Building an Effective Team. Stating that Team Building is one of the most important responsibilities a manager has.

As a result of selecting the right activity with these objectives in mind you will provide realistic experiences that can therefore empower your team to contribute to common goals.

How can I make sure my Team Building activities are successful?

If you are organising Team Building Activities in Canberra CBD or surrounding areas you want to make sure that they are successful.

There are 4 areas that you need to address when organising an event. 

Request Information

Firstly gather all the information you need about the event before you start doing any research. This is a very important step in the planning process and will therefore save you a lot of time if you complete this step before moving on.

  •  What is the reason or purpose  – why is this event taking place. Generally understanding this is the key to choosing the right team building activity. This should therefore also include the outcomes and expectations
  • Budget – knowing this ahead of time will subsequently greatly reduce you wasting time in getting quotes for team activities in Canberra that you have no hope of getting approved
  • In addition group size, location, date and time are also very important information to know in advance in order to get accurate quotes for team building Canberra

Research - Ideas to think about as you do your research

Secondly start to do some research and gather ideas

  • Try to have a key decision maker on your committee – it will in turn save a lot of time
  • Likewise keep a checklist or Work in progress to make sure all tasks are being completed
  • In addition promotion of the event is very important to the team building activities success. Preparing your audience can make a huge difference to the success or failure of the event – however leave a little mystery – as people love mystery.

Follow up - things to remember as your event is wrapped up

Lastly gather feedback. This can be fantastic guidance for next time

  • In particular what worked well and what didn’t work well
  • Was everyone able to join in the activity or did people feel left out

Sometimes it is hard to choose an activity just by looking at some pictures and a description. Therefore we have put together a playlist of some of the team building activities in Canberra in action to give you a better idea – and so you can see how much fun they are. 

You can also go to our Youtube channel for more ideas and to see other activities in action. We are adding new videos all the time, so if there is something you are interested in and we don’t have a video for it just ask us.

Furthermore events can also be customised to suit your objectives and themes. Let us know what you would like and we can organise customised quotes for you
