Are Team Building Activities Really That Great?

“Team building activities” is a phrase that usually triggers an emotional reaction in listeners. But unfortunately, the reaction isn’t always a miraculous one. People tend to be either the competitive, social types who love the challenge of team tasks or they tend to be the more passive or cynical types who feel annoyed by being forced to participate in what they deem to be pointless activities.

While team exercises like this are beneficial, following certain best practices will help make the experience more successful, and help you overcome the social discomfort a couple people will experience.

Here are some of the reasons it makes sense to try team building activities with your group:

  • It helps new members integrate into the group.
  • It helps existing members get to know each other.
  • It builds trust.
  • It can be fun and build morale!
  • It develops team communication channels needed to get along well in ordinary life.
  • It builds group cooperation skills.
  • It bonds groups around common objectives.
  • It can shake up the monotony of daily rituals.
  • It can help inspire creative problem-solving techniques.
  • It can encourage more collaboration.
  • It can ease tension between group members.
