Team Building activities that foster team success yet are easy and cost-effective - It helps in improving communication, boosting morale, motivation, ice breakers which help get to know each other better, learning effective strategies, improving productivity, learning about one’s strengths and weaknesses and many others.

Engage employees by encouraging them to take initiative - A culture which encourages an employee to take initiative and do what needs to be done without waiting to be told is greater than ever. In addition to helping the organization save money, improve processes, and delight customers, taking initiative makes the employee's job more exciting as they make things happen and get a reputation for doing so.

  4. 4. Ideation -1 The Best Two Ideas 1) Team Building activities that foster team success yet are easy and cost-effective-  It helps in improving communication, boosting morale, motivation, ice breakers which help get to know each other better, learning effective strategies, improving productivity, learning about one’s strengths and weaknesses and many others. Here are some examples- 1. Games i.e. communicate and ice break, create your own team etc. 2. Knowledge sharing session on weekends 3. Lunch discussions 4.

  6. 6. Prototype 1- Communication to build relationship 1. We did outing with the team to know each other in which we created an environment where people truly participate, we don't need control. They know what needs to be done and they do it. 2. Knowledge sharing session on weekends 3. Lunch discussions 4. Intern’s can ask for the presentation about the project. 5. Explanation of hierarchy so that interns can understand who is who in the company.

  8. 8. Prototype 1- What worked 1. It was nice to know each other at some comfortable place where everyone can be themselves. 2. Knowledge sharing session on weekends has helped us build stronger relationships where everyone can exchange their ideas without fear. It helps to provide comfortable collaboration spaces with couches, snacks and beverages as it keeps people refresh during the session. 3. Lunch discussions are quite helpful to have great relationship and to build comfortable environment. 4. We have happy team with enthusiasm to do great work in the end. 5. We are able to give right direction to the team and interns.
  9. 9. Prototype 1- What could be improved 1. Pre planning and presentation about the project by the team. 2. Help interns understand how they can take support of seniors if required in the work. 3. Help them understand about the company policies related to work. 4. By making it mandatory for everyone to review the project once in a month.
  10. 10. Prototype 1- Questions & Ideas Questions None Ideas 1. A common space on the server where the project can be saved and team can get freedom to review according to the time they have. 2. A calendar in which team can go and give remarks daily about how the work is going.
  11. 11. A happy team
  12. 12. Ideation -2 The Best Two Ideas 2) Engage employees by encouraging them to take initiative  A culture which encourages an employee to take initiative and do what needs to be done without waiting to be told is greater than ever. In addition to helping the organization save money, improve processes, and delight customers, taking initiative makes the employee's job more exciting as they make things happen and get a reputation for doing so. 1. Make it “safe” to present and try new ideas, make suggestions, question assumptions, and challenge the status quo. 2. Identify what employees perceive as “positive performance outcomes.” 3. Proper intro and proper understanding of work.
  13. 13. Prototype 2- Changes at work place by simple communication and by showing example videos 1. We have tried to provide them the opportunities to learn, practice, perform With Revised, realistic expectations With proper delegation of challenging assignments. 2. We have motivated self-study in the team. 3. We have tried helping everyone understands the differences in values, personality type, style (with manager, peers, customers, etc.) 4. We have made it “safe” to present and try new ideas, make suggestions, question assumptions, and challenge the status quo. 5. We have made quality employee-supervisor relationships a priority. 6. We have tried to identify what employees perceive as “positive performance outcomes.”
  14. 14. Prototype 1- 1-The outcome of the changes at work place
  15. 15. Prototype 2- What worked  The healthy culture which is the first step of the ladder of prosperity and growth has been built. The positivity which is the most required energy of the growth of an individual, of team and hence organization’s can be seen among the team.  There is enthusiasm not fear to experiment and innovate which can be seen among team. Innovation, technology and science are a must for prosperity anywhere, even design thinking is also one of them.  Nobody is competing with each other but understanding the difference between each other and in respectable manner.  Nobody is forcing or imposing their ideas but listening and properly understanding them, followed by implementation in the pipeline.  Interns are comfortable in doing tasks and even doing mistakes.
  16. 16. Prototype 2- What worked  I think this is the perfect environment of growth in all areas of life for an individual, team and the organization. High productive people likes to work where they can change things and can do realistic improvements, it makes them feel confident and happy. Especially interns can actually grow and prosper in this kind of place.  I think it has helped to make everyone a stakeholder of growth in the organization, it helps them engaged with the real problems everyone is facing on daily bases and later on they have also contributed with their brilliant ideas which has brought desired change.  Self study has helped us learn new things and when we are reading similar books, it feels nice to have discussions about it. It also builds good relationships and good environment. Exchanging books is also fun and enhance knowledge.
  17. 17. Prototype 2- What could be improved 1. The perception of good work which has changed though which was very stereo typed earlier but needs more grooming. 2. It’s very important to have good managers on the top because people specially interns follow them blindly. They are the role models to them so if managers are wrong guys due to any reason they will build that kind of culture and reputation hence that kind of team in the organization which in long run can be the cause of the collapse of the team, individual or the organization. The managers hold the belief system of people inside and outside the organization, wrong belief system where they are only doing wrong things for their personal benefits will create wrong environment, wrong perceptions will lead to vague and 0 results. 3. It is very important to build good culture between the middle management and juniors. Interns don’t know what is right and what is wrong, we have to give them good examples which can help them become great managers later on.
  18. 18. Prototype 2- Questions & Ideas Questions Why do seniors sometimes don’t know the difference between the right guys and wrong guys. It’s a very tedious and long process to correct things once has gone in wrong direction. Ideas 1. Knowledge to managers about perception theory and belief systems and how they are connected with everyone psychologically. 2. The importance to have knowledge of various parameters while analyzing someone for higher positions in place of being stereo type. 3. The knowledge of the cons and dangers of wrong promotions even if done by mistake to everyone, both ways wrong guy on higher position and right guy on lower position.
