Team Building

Team Building That Actually Builds Teams

The most important step when planning a team-building activity comes at the very beginning: you must start by figuring out what challenges your team faces. Only then can you choose exercises that will be effective in helping them work through these issues.

Spend time thinking about your team's current strengths and weaknesses. Ask yourself these questions to identify the root of any problems:

  • Are there conflicts between certain people that are creating divisions within the team?

  • Do team members need to get to know one another?

  • Do some members focus on their own success, and harm the group as a result?

  • Does poor communication slow the group's progress?

  • Do people need to learn how to work together, instead of individually?

  • Are some members resistant to change, and does this affect the group's ability to move forward?

  • Do members of the group need a boost to their morale?

If you'd like to test how well you and your team work together, try our Team Effectiveness Assessment . Once you've identified the causes of your team's issues, you can plan exercises that will address these problems. This will help your team to derive real benefit from the event – and feel that it was worth their while.
