Formal vs Informal
This has been a long-standing question when it comes to organising team building activities and can often blur the lines when dealing with workplace relationships.
More often than not, the informal team building events are the best way to have the team come out of their shells in a more friendly and comfortable environment, meaning you’re more likely to gain closer working relationships from the experience.
This is especially useful if you’re dealing with a new team and need team building ice breakers, such as fun days, sports events or mental challenges.
On the other hand, if you’re hosting a team building event to reward your team for hard work, formal might be a better option to make the event more special.
When you’re not an expert at team building or even just rallying large amounts of people together, it can be hard to get everyone in the team building spirit.
Motivation is so key but can be hard to grasp, but an array of engaging team building activities can often peak the interests of your team members and have everyone involved in no time.
If you take time to cover the factors below, getting people involved will be much easier.
- Go against tradition - no more boring conferences!
- A new environment is always effective
- Ask your team what they would prefer
- Create excitement beforehand
