So how do you go about holding an effective team building in Singapore? Here are the major factors or things that you should take into consideration:
Assessing your team’s needs
This is the first thing that you should take into consideration before embarking on team building activities so that you ensure that the entire exercise is a success. Make sure that your entire team is ready for the exercise. It will not make any sense, or you won’t achieve much if you hold team building activities if you have not addressed any underlying issues in your organization. So before directing any of your efforts into team building, look into any issues that may be ailing your organization.
Take into consideration by ascertaining whether each member of your staff will want to participate in the team building activities. Do not force any member of your staff to engage in team building activities as this is more likely to cause resentment which will undermine the entire team building exercise.
Determine your objectives
The other factor that you should consider when you want to hold a successive team building exercise in Singapore is making a determination of the challenges that you need your team to overcome while mapping out the objectives that you will want to achieve. Is the team suffering from divisions or conflicts? Are you experiencing poor communication? Do you have people within your group who are focusing more on individual achievements as opposed to group performance? When you find answers to such questions, you will be in a good position to determine the objectives that you will want your team building exercise to achieve.
Settle on the right activities
When you have defined the objectives that you want to achieve, it will be easy for you to choose an activity that is likely to match and meet your objectives. If you lack ideas on which activities to engage in, you can get some of them from online. But ensure that the one that you settle on will be the right one for your goals. If you are unsure of the activity that will best suit your group, it is advisable that you seek an opinion from your team, as by so doing you will be able to settle on an activity that everyone will be comfortable engaging in while also benefiting.
When it comes to achieving the required creativity, it is always advisable that you engage the services of a professional team building facilitator, who have the required skills of running and designing the team building sessions on your behalf. But if you have budget constraints you can always try out something creative in your office.
