The Importance of Team Building Events

The keys to a successful and productive team, is often reliant on the amount of trust, rapport, cohesion and motivation to work together, that the team members have. So, it is important that you not only have rapport/team building exercises at the start, but also throughout and at the end of a project, through debrief/feedback of the overall project. This increases the collaboration, communication and camaraderie of a team.

As a manager, you should be ensuring that you have regular team building events that help improve everyone’s sense of belonging, helps them be heard and helps team members learn how to support each other in complex situations. By doing this, you will improve the trust and cohesion amongst team members so that they know they can rely on one another.

By planning and scheduling regular team building events you will not only improve productivity in your team but also encourage them to be more motivated and creative.
