The goal of any 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.
Team building is a collective term for various types of activities used to enhance social relations and define roles within teams, often involving collaborative tasks. It is distinct from team training, which is designed to improve the efficiency, rather than interpersonal relations.
