TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES MELBOURNE

You need to organise Team Building Events Melbourne.

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 Melbourne. 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 a team building 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 of organising the best Team Building Activities in Melbourne 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 best Team Building Activities Melbourne

Why is it important to choose the right activity?

What is the purpose of Team Building Activities Melbourne?

Team Building events in Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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. Innovative Team Building UK reinforces the benefits of Team Building in their article.

Similarly during fun group activities in Melbourne 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 group activities for adults in Melbourne in the form of 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 Kid Billy Music.

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 group activities Melbourne should include key learning objectives.

Some examples of key learning areas that team building activities in Melbourne 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 Melbourne

Some harmless competition, for instance, can be great when you participate in group activities for adults in Melbourne. 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. Forbes further writes on 5 ways to build and effective team.

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

If you are organising Team Building Activities in Melbourne 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 group activities for adults Melbourne 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 activities Melbourne

Research - Ideas to think about as you do your research

  • 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

Find the Fugitive team building event best team building activities in melbourne best team building activities in melbourne

Find the Fugitive

outdoor problem solving

In the hunt for the Fugitive, teams must participate in activities in order to gain clues as to the Fugitive’s location and identity. The challenge is set and the only question that your team should have on their mind is “Who is the fugitive and where are they currently hiding? “.

What happens in this activity

Firstly your group is divided into teams. Throughout the event teams compete to be the first to identify and return the Fugitive to captivity. The winning team will have resourcefulness, an eye for detail, and the ability to think like a fugitive.

Throughout the day, while hunting down leads, teams also participate in recreational or problem solving activities that meet your organisation’s team building objectives. Success at activities is rewarded with information that will help find the wanted person. The greater a team’s success at the chosen activity stations, the more clues to the Fugitive’s identity and location.

Be on guard though, as the Fugitive has a few tricks of his or her own to avoid capture, and other teams will be laying false trails to confuse the competition. If your team overcomes all these obstacles, does it have the courage to step up to a member of the public, apparently going about their lawful business, and say “Are you the Fugitive?”

Number of people: 20 – 100+

Duration: 2- 3 hrs

OUTCOMES: STRATEGY, CREATIVITY, COMMUNICATION, DELEGATION, TIME MANAGEMENT, LEADERSHIP

small team group work in resilience matters workshop with post it notes learning and development team building events Melbourne

Presentation Skills

Learning & Development

Public speaking is the #1 fear in the world. When it comes to creating fear and trepidation telling someone they have to make a formal presentation to a large group of people ranks above spiders, snakes, and everything else for creating nervousness and fear. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Amazing presenters are confident because they know their presentation is built on Audience Engagement principles. They know they have created a presentation that will appeal to their audience because they have built that presentation using a structure that understands the audience perspective. The structure makes all the difference.

Engaging your audience is not achieved through gestures and fancy PowerPoint slides, it’s achieved by understanding and designing your presentation using the structure of Audience Engagement. Once you understand that structure you can make every presentation, even impromptu opportunities, with confidence.

What happens in this workshop

Your facilitator will present the structure and techniques of great presentations. You will then have the opportunity to build your own presentation, and depending on the length of your workshop practice with your colleagues. To be successful at developing great presentation skills you will need to listen and apply what you are learning.

Number of people: 12 – 100+

Duration: 4 – 8 hrs

Network widgets learning and development team building team building activities melbourne cbd

Network Widgets

Learning & Development

An interactive team building activity that will make your team united. The energy comes from the apparent competition as people try to “process” a Widget in the shortest possible time. This is not as easy as it sounds because of the fickle nature of the Widget itself, which can be prone to falling apart if provoked.

The business messages come from the need to work together, plan, clearly assign roles, and develop a clear team process. It also comes from the opportunity to move people between teams and realign the group to collaboration rather than competition.

If you are looking for an event that will easily fit into your conference and can be done in your conference room then Network Widgets is perfect. This high energy event is done in the conference room and only needs between 1 to 2 hours.

What happens in this workshop

Network Widgets normally starts with an energiser activity that gets the team warmed up before they are set the task of “processing” a Widget in the shortest possible time. Teams then plan their approach before all teams are asked to do the processing at the same time. This feels like a race and, with the accompanying music, generates a lot of energy.

Once the first round is completed teams can either be challenged to achieve a faster time or work together to get all teams achieving a faster time.

Number of people: 20 – 100+

Duration: 1.5 – 2hrs
