You can always contact external facilitators to facilitate your team building activities. These experienced facilitators understand your team requirements so they would know the right team activities for your organization. Your leaders or corporate managers may be asked to fill out a form where you will identify your specific requirements and the output you expect from the activity. When you fill out the form, have the following things in mind.
What is the goal of the activity?
Team building activities are conducted for different reasons. Some organizations conduct team building events to strengthen communication within and among units while there are those that are designed to enhance teamwork. There are also team building activities that are designed to enhance productivity and creativity among individual workers. No matter what the objective of the event is, make sure that your team activities are in line with these objectives.
Activities relevant to organizational values
When organizations are consumed with deliverables and deadlines, they can sometimes forget the core values of their organization. To steer the organization back to the right track and to remind the members of the values that the organization upholds, a team building activitywould be fitting.
Activities designed for everybody
When choosing a type of games and activities for your team building, keep all the members of the organization in mind. It would be best to be sensitive to those who are pregnant, those who have medical issues or those with physical disabilities. Make sure that everyone can participate in the activities you chose or designed no matter how small the roles may be.
Right for the kind of venue
When you think of team activities to conduct, make sure that the venue allows for the type of games you have in mind. Check the venue first because you might be suggesting for indoor activities when you are going to conduct the activity outdoors and on a beach resort. The view and space would be a waste if you will not maximize its benefits of ample space offered by outdoor setting or venue.
