While some people think team building is a “soft” activity that involves campfires, group hugs, and singing Kumbaya; it’s really an analytical and creative process focused on realizing potential.
It’s problem solving and involves:
- identifying the problem,
- defining potential solutions,
- working out the plan,
- implementing, and
- monitoring to make sure things are on track.
We can work with one small team, an organization full of teams, or even inter-company teams.
If inadequate results, inefficient processes, infighting, excessive costs, poor morale, customer and employee turnover, excessive errors, waste, sluggish decision-making, or lots of grumbling are hurting your organization; it might be time for some team building.
