Are the same mistakes and perhaps conflicts derailing your plans over and over again? If this sounds familiar, perhaps a bit of team building is needed to help your employees or team members establish the bond they need to work well together. These retreats are perfect for helping the group to learn how each individual contributes to your cause as a collective whole. Consider booking a Personality Dimensions™ workshop to get your team ‘Talking in Colour’. This FUN, but very results oriented team building exercise is ideally suited to get team members honouring differences and building self esteem.
How does corporate team building work? In many cases, it consists of your group attending one or several sessions in which they perform several activities that help establish trust and encourage positive workforce traits such as communication, resolving conflict, cooperation, collective problem solving, planning, tactics, and more. These are not only traits that will help them perform at their best while at the workplace; these will also help them form the bond they need to work well together. Personality Dimensions™ is ideal for understanding what particular strengths each personality style brings to the table. You will also understand where there are skill gaps in the team, and be given tips on how to fill those gaps.
Corporate team building exercises usually fall under two categories: physical and mental. Physical exercises typically involve a series of fun games that help in loosening up the group and keeping them on their feet and energetic. Personality Dimensions ™ lends itself well for these types of activities – keeping participants moving helps brain activity. We include games such as ‘the party’, stand up if, dream vacations and many more. Participants are also encouraged to problem solve using the four personality style model.
Mental corporate team building involves a variety of games that help incorporate trust, sharing, communication, empathy, and other concepts. These include games such as the Personality Dimensions™ Jeopardy, the murder mystery, name that colour, and others. We also include activities in which the team members share a bit about themselves, such as a worst fear or a fond memory. The more the group knows about one another, the more they will be able to act as a team.
Don’t make it a one-off. Ensure that the training sticks, by introducing a strategy to keep people ‘Talking in Colour. In order to get return on your investment, you need to continue the conversation, answer any questions people have. We always encourage participants to apply what they have learned back on the job, and in life in general. After all, your team will have FUN, but it takes time to form the bonds and collective thinking skills that are needed for some of the more challenging team tasks and projects. Create a peak performance team by continuously investing in your team, and furthering learning and cooperation.
