General Information about Team Building for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.
Team Building is a term used to describe various types of collaborative activities that enhance social relations and define roles within teams through collaboration. Team building activities are very important since they improve performance in collaborative environments. Team building is one of the foundations of organizational development and can be applied to various groups, including (but not limited to) sports teams, school classes, military units, or flight crews. It is one of the most used group-development activities within organizations. Strategies such as corporate love-ins or team-building retreats are commonly employed by well-known organizations with the intent of building strong teams. These strategies aim to solve underlying concerns and build trust, by engaging in activities other than what the team members usually do in their day-to-day work environment (e.g.playing, sports, etc.)
Team building has been scientifically associated with improvements in team effectiveness. The four pillars of team building – goal setting, role clarification, problem-solving, and interpersonal relations – greatly enhance team productivity. Communication, sharing, and providing support are among the interpersonal skills that any team-building program aims to address and improve. Having fun with co-workers is also one important component of team building, ultimately making team members more focused, aligned, and productive.
