“Set-piece team building exercises are one way to strengthen the bonds within your team, but they are not a shortcut to success. Instead, you need to make team building part of your group’s mindset” Following this, IILM Gurgaon campus organized a Team building session with Faculty and Staff. Team is made up of people with different needs, ambitions, and personalities. Getting to know them, and helping them to get to know each other, can build a happy, trusting team.
There were many exercises which took place in the Gurgaon campus:
1. Beautiful Dance Performance
2. Treasure Hunt
3. Tug of War.
Team building can only occur when relevant and timely activities that address specific needs are part of your organization’s culture. One-off exercises can help with this, but they are not a shortcut to success.
The purpose of team building activities is to motivate the people to work together, to develop their strengths, and to address any weaknesses. So, any team building exercise should encourage collaboration rather than competition.
Be sure to incorporate team building into your workplace routines and practices. For example, get to know your people better, work toward common goals, develop their skills, and make the extra effort to connect with your virtual team members.
In this way, they build a firm foundation of purpose, trust, and rapport that has given challenging events too, appropriately and effectively.
