Thats a great quote that is very relevant to planning your team building event in Wellington. But how do you go about getting your team to achieve that ?
How are you going to get your team to over perform rather than under perform ?
Good team building is what helps to shape the teams that end up being greater than the sum of their parts.
First you probably have to look at why you are putting together a team building event in the first place. Most businesses realise the benefits of having their workforce working together as a team. That might not be as straightforward as it seems.
Your employees will all have been recruited as individuals with relevant qualifications and skills that should make them useful additions to your team. That doesn’t necessarily guarantee that they will all be great team players.
You just have to look at any great sporting teams. The most successful teams arent necessarily the teams that are loaded with all the best players.
So how do you go about creating a winning team?
Many of your team can be great at their individual jobs without having to connect too much with other members of your team. That often means that they dont appreciate the value the work of other members of the team. They can very easily end up being very good at their jobs without seeing the bigger picture of what you are trying to achieve as an organisation.
The first thing that we are going to do is take your team out of their office or workplace and put them into unfamiliar territory. We will split them into teams and give each team a task to perform that none of them have ever done before.
No previous knowledge will help them. Everything they need will be in their room. Google won’t help them nor will a zillion masters degrees in astro physics, chemistry or advanced computer engineering.
Common sense, logic and the ability to think outside of the box are all that are the most useful qualities in our team building activities.
What will help them will be good communication, good observational skills and great team work.
The task will be fun, challenging and involve them working as a team to achieve their goal.
Success will only be achvieved by completing a whole series of mini challenges . One thing that we are sure of is that no one individual will solve everything by themselves. The end goal will involve team work and without completing every link in the chain of events, the team will fail.
That means that every link in the chain is equally important. You can be sure that at the end of the escape game, everyone will have contributed something that was critical to the teams success.
The key lesson learned from a great team building event can often be that everything hinged everyone noticing some very small details. When everyone goes out realising that every contribution, no matter how small , led to the eventual success of the team , then that’s been a good day out of the office.
