Teamwork

Posted by Mark Salinas on May 20, 2008

A big challenge in the world today is to have a strong team with a similar goal for the good of the company. A successful organization needs a strong team to maintain stability growth. “How do we do this?”

Team Work

A few ideas:

Take a day as a group and go work on something together where you can easily see what you’ve accomplished. For example, take your team out to plant trees or bushes at a local charity. Planting works well because it is easy to see how much your team has obviously accomplished . Many of our daily business activities do not show progress or accomplishment in an obvious way. Planting together is also good because it gives people a chance to talk while they plant and get to know each other better outside of work conversations.

Do a ropes course or something similar together. Rope courses are great team building activities. These courses help to build trust in your group and are important team building events. Groups can make use of a ropes-course for meetings, workshops, seminars, business training programs, etc.

Start a company Softball, or Soccer team. Again on the same team trying for the same goal (no pun intended).

There are many ways for a team to grow within an organization but it starts with trust. Get the group outside of the work environment and “make some things happen.”
