Here at Team Challenge Company, we pride ourselves in helping our clients realise their potential by planning and hosting a team building event that is quite simply out of this world. We work with clients from various industries every day, all looking to achieve the same goal – to maximise morale and improve productivity.
We often get asked to help organise the perfect event, but what exactly does the perfect event look like? After all, what one person may deem to be perfect for them, another may not be impressed in the slightest. There is no one-size-fits-all off the shelf event that anyone can honestly say is the be all and end all – if that was the case, then planning and delivery wouldn’t be the art-form we pride ourselves on.
Understanding Your Audience
To organise the perfect event, you need to understand your audience. In this case, the audience is your peers and colleagues and you are likely the manager responsible for the team. As well and understanding where your team’s professional strengths and – not weaknesses – but key areas of developments are, but also their personalities and the different types of characters that you have.
Everyone reacts differently, so finding the perfect approach will be a difficult one and, arguably, virtually impossible. The key here is to ensure that your corporate team building event is adaptable in a way that the entire audience can interact and leave feeling as though they have taken something positive away.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
One method that employers utilise to better understand their employees is through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The assessment is designed to identify key behaviour traits, comparing across eight different personality types, which are:
The likelihood of one person fitting perfectly into any of the above categories is low as individuals are expected to overlap into a number of types. For more information on MBTI, please get in contact with Team Challenge Company.
