WHAT A TEAM BUILDING PROGRAM SHOULD COVER TO INCULCATE THE SPIRIT OF TEAMWORK

Team building program in the workplace offers the company and staff the ability to become more familiar with each other and learn how to work together. A team that works well together understands the strengths and weaknesses of each team member. One of the benefits of strong teamwork in the workplace is that team leaders and members become proficient at dividing up tasks so they are done by the most qualified people. This means a sense of unity, of enthusiasm for common interests and responsibilities, as developed among a group of persons closely associated in a task, cause, enterprise, etc.

Team building program can be likened to two compounds, almost essential to modern life. It’s the glue which keeps a team together, a bond which promotes strength, unity, reliability and support. Teamwork is also the oil that makes the team work. It can enable smoother movement towards targets, can prolong forward momentum, and can help teams to overcome obstacles.

Although universal as a concept, Teamwork is so easy to understand and yet not so easy to practice. This is because of the changing variables such as team composition, roles and responsibilities, policies and procedures and so on. This is why team building program on a regular basis is essential for a team. Every conversation and learning experience about team building as important as the previous one. A Team building program allows a team to reconnect and recommit, afresh to the common goal that connects all of them as a team.

  • RESPECTING INTERDEPENDENCE

Successful Teamwork depends heavily on the behavioral ability of individuals and teams to work together in achieving results. Members must understand and internalize the importance of mutual dependency within the team and with peers in achieving the end result. As people get caught up in proving to themselves, the system and their own teams their abilities, they lose sight of the fact that no man is an island and without the “active” and “willful” support of the team and peers no result is achievable. It is about the tacit acknowledgment of the statement of the great thinker Aristotle, ‘The sum of the parts is greater than the whole’. It is about not attaching an overt importance to individual ability but rather appreciating and respecting diversity in skills, knowledge, experience and ideas. In an environment where our performance depends on support from peers and other departments, the importance of interdependency cannot be emphasized enough.

  • DEMONSTRATING TRUSTWORTHINESS & EARNING RESPECT

A team performer demonstrates trustworthiness, earns and gives respect and as a result is, in general, is a well-liked person, both within the team and among peers. Trust and Respect is the foundation of building a team culture. The consistency of words and actions and objectivity in dealing with team members and peers without favoritism builds trustworthiness and earns respect, which is critical to be able to work with people within and outside one’s own team.

  • EMPATHY & RELATIONSHIP BUILDING

The ability to put oneself in the shoes other members becomes key as the team members will be from different backgrounds, experience, and newness to the organization. The ability to work well with people depends on the type of relationship you enjoy with them. Strangers can hardly be expected to trust each other let alone depend on each other hence the relationship between members become key to any successful team. The better the relationship better the teamwork.

  • ACTIVE COMMUNICATION

To seek alignment, there is a need for active and intentional communication, including listening, giving feedback, empathizing with others being result driven in our communication. Teams that communicate complete projects in a quicker and more efficient amount of time than others. They also are more accurate in their work than others. Effective communication also allows team members to understand their roles and the roles of everyone else on the team. It also gives room for understanding among the team members for what needs to be done. Good communication is also about developing the skill of effective listening.
