A Guide To Corporate Team Building Activities

By Eugenia Dickerson

Some people may dismiss corporate team building activities. It is easy to see them as an adult equivalent of recess. However a little investment of both time and money can make a big difference to the success of your business if you do it in the right way!

A good example of this is with a sales team. Often companies not only have individual targets but also group targets. Therefore one person selling a lot may be great but they can be even more effective if they share their expertise with the other members of the group, encouraging them and increasing their self confidence in order to improve their sales techniques.

However the benefits are not necessarily restricted to sales. People who are nervous about speaking to people an office may find it easier if they are engaging in an activity with a group. This means that people who were previously a bit quieter are more likely to grow in confidence and want to engage more in the office.

For this member confidence is not an issue. However the right activity can illustrate why cooperation and working together is important. This then means that this confident salesperson can also learn to use their skills in a more positive way and work to benefit the whole group.

This can also apply to members of the group who are shy. People who may not talk much during a meeting may not necessarily be bad sales people. It may simply be that they need a boost to their confidence. In this instance the right activity can encourage them to be part of the group and learn to communicate more.

Admittedly there will also people who are not necessarily obviously an introvert or an extrovert. However people can often do with a bit more confidence or learning to listen a bit more. One way of achieving this is by going on a retreat away from the office so that people have to talk with each other as they do not go home at the end of the day.

One way of achieving this is by booking an exclusive venue. Some venues allow you to book so that there are no other guests. This then means that everyone in your group not only does the activities together but also eats together and socialises after events together. Scheduling a number of these throughout the year will mean more people do events together and therefore will become more familiar with each other.

As with anything concerning your business it is worth comparing a range of corporate team building activities and companies that supply them. This will make it easier to find something that works for your team and make it easier for them to bond together. Use your regular search engine to find out more about what is available in your local area as well as feedback and reviews to help find the best option for you and your team.
