Team building days, events and activities are part of life for many organisations up and down the country. Of course, there can be many different reasons for organising a team building event, ranging from successfully integrating new starters to actively working to resolve any issues.

As a result, there should be no one-size-fits-all approach to team building or the results you hope employees will take away from the experience. Therefore, if you are thinking of planning a team building event, it’s important to outline clear goals and objectives to ensure that you and your team get the most out of the occasion.

Whether it is fostering positive workplace relationships or helping to change attitudes within the team, setting goals can ensure that your objectives are met. However, if you are struggling to identify and define goals for your team building event, we can help you get started.

Why is it Important to Set Goals?

For many employers, the main objective is to develop and maintain a team that is happy, confident and performing well. Cohesiveness and strong relationships are key to achieving this, which is one of the reasons why team building days have been proven to be so effective.

However, this is a significant objective – it’s important to break things down into more easily manageable steps.

If you oversee a team, there are certain questions that you should be asking yourself when setting goals. Firstly, you must establish where your team is realistically at now. Whether it is as a whole or on an individual level, identifying weak points or potential issues early can help you to resolve them more effectively. Next, you need to set an objective for yourself, look into the future and visualise where you want your team to be. The final step is the most important – how can you help your team get from A to B?

Sharing a Common Objective

Even if you don’t share this goal with your team, it’s still important to do what you can to help everyone achieve the shared objective. After all, good teamwork is essential to the success of the entire team, which is where team building comes into the equation.

Over the course of a team building day, your employees will be faced with several situations and scenarios designed to test their abilities, encourage teamwork and communication, and push them outside of their comfort zone. When managed effectively, the results of your team building event can be transferred directly across to the workplace, helping you to work towards your team’s overall goal together.

Team building days are beneficial for a wide variety of reasons, but we are well placed to be able to offer a variety of services to suit your team’s individual requirements.
