The main purpose of team building is to work together as a team (to obtain unity) using experiential learning activities to open up communication among team members.
Experiential learning activities provide a safe environment to address problems within the team.
You can see this as a simulation of the corporate environment.
Some of our best pilots in the world will spend a lot of time in a flight simulator practicing foreseen and unforeseen scenarios.
This will enable the pilot to avoid mistakes that can lead to catastrophic consequences.
The question is: can we practice in a safe environment (simulator) and take this learning back to our working environment to avoid mistakes.
The answer: Yes. Through getting your team involved in a well-planned team development program.
We are very fortunate in South Africa to have a big variety of team building processes that can provide quality programs.
