Top 10 Team Building Tips

Here are 10 handy team building tips:

  • Team Building must focus on an outcome – Ask yourself – will there be a Return on Investment for the money my company is spending?
  • Venue choice – bare in mind that the venue must match the tone of the event – don’t book a 5-star resort for a chilled team getaway
  • Do something new and exciting – there’s more risk in doing something boring than picking something new and different
  • Activity levels should match the needs and requirements of the group. Challenging but not strenuous
  • Buy-in is essential, the aim should be to grow as a team and not tear any team members down
  • Safety – use reputable operators with proven track records. Ask about risk assessments and emergency planning
  • Transport – try not to travel too far if time is limited, nobody likes sitting on a bus!
  • Timing – don’t plan individual activities for periods longer than 3 hours. If a full day is required, split the day into an afternoon and morning session, do a low impact event in the afternoon
  • Do you have pregnant or elderly team members? Are they catered for?
  • Teasers – use email or facebook teasers to get the team excited prior to the event
