There are quite a few people who are in need of a lesson in team building and team commitment. It is also important to teach people how to work together, regardless of how they work independently. If you run a company or a corporation you know how important it is for your staff to work together well. Staffs that have done team building activities have been reported to have a higher quality of work, trust mangers and other employees more, work well as a team and create an over all sense of pride. These are all things that create a great staff member. These team building activities do not have to be expensive or elaborate, they can be simple and to the point. Adults in the work place can thrive from the following team building activities. Getting to know the team. When a team does not know one another they can be hard to understand, and work with. Once the barriers are down, and they all feel comfortable with one another, they can grow to trust one another. These games can include: 2 truths 1 lie, flag making, empty your purse/wallet and 3 things you don’t know about me. All of these games are considered to be ice breakers, as well as the best way to understand the people you work with. Team building exercises. These are very much like the ice breakers, but more in depth. These can include the solving of mock issues, creating a human chain or playing adventure games outdoors.

Brought To You By All Rights Reserved © 2011 Team Building Activities HQ The truth about team building Placing people who do not spend time together in smaller groups together is a great idea. This way the team can form bonds with people they would not normally. If team members have conflict with one another they should be able to talk about it reasonably, and come to some sort of mutual agreement. This can be done one on one or with the help of a team mediator. Team building activities for adults can take place in three areas: In the office area, outdoors or on public property. Larger and more intense weekends and information weekends are usually done outside of office areas. When the team building is only a few hours long, and is fairly basic, the office will usually suffice. Knowing why people and work places need team building is important. This will give the leaders a better understanding of how to teach, and why. Adult team building differs from that of children’s because it is more complex, and can last longer. If you are current having issues in your work place, you may want to think about implementing a team bonding time, as it has been shown to drastically reduce work place issues.
