As a leader, it is important that you are familiar with your employees’ different personalities. Team building events encourage colleagues to work to their strengths, helping to figure out their role within their team.
Not only do well-run events enable leaders to learn about their employees, activities also provide an opportunity for members of the team to learn about themselves. While one person may work in a role that requires highly analytical skills and behaviours, they may find they hold more creative traits than initially thought. All of this can be identified as part of the Belbin Team Roles.
Finding out these qualities helps employees to build stronger, more cohesive teams that benefit the company as a whole. Far too often businesses try to fit square pegs into round holes without ever realising.
