Teambuilding Help My Organization?
years of teambuilding, I have encountered a number of people who are
skeptical about whether a teambuilding experience can really improve
the teamwork and potential of their group. How could something like
a scavenger hunt, Low Ropes Course, Initiatives or a canoe trip
promote better communication and cooperation in a group of
individuals? How important is teambuilding to my team?
Bob Taylor of Taylor Guitars, has said,
“Building the team is as important as producing the product.” John
C. Maxwell, a recognized expert on leadership and teamwork has
observed that, “You will never develop common ground with your
teammates unless you share common experiences.”
The personal and professional changes
are brought about through dynamic, hands-on experiences that promote
creative problem-solving, group discussions, personal goal-setting
and a realization of the limitations, both real and perceived, for
program participants. Through the successful completion of tasks
and the increase in self-esteem, group acceptance and cooperation
that results, participants are provided with life-changing outcomes
that can be applied to school, work, family and society.
At the Northern Lakes Impact Center, we
provide safe, fun, quality experiences that provide the shared
experiences and the interactions that are fundamental to promoting
dialogue between individuals. Our goal is not to provide a one-day
recreational experience but to create an atmosphere of acceptance
and understanding that will improve group performance for weeks,
months and even years after the event. Our goal is to be the
process that allows teams to achieve excellence.
