                              Corporate Team Building - Shake 'Em Up To Wake 'Em Up
                                                           By Brett Danielson

   Team building has become somewhat of a buzz word in corporate circles over the past few years.
Many corporate event planners toss the term 'corporate team building' around willy-nilly as part of their
marketing talk - but their events don't always live up to the team building promise. For an event to
actually transform and cement new ways of working together, it has to offer more than just lip service
and a group trip to go fly-fishing.

Successful corporate team building events have a number of elements in common:

1. The opportunity to see the roadblocks to successful communication and teamwork

2. The chance to see co-workers in unfamiliar roles and situations

3. The necessity to work together toward a common goal

4. The support needed to forge productive new ways of working together

Good corporate event planners take those cut-and-dried concepts and turn them into a fun learning
experience. The true geniuses in the corporate event world can create amazing and transforming
events that will shake up your organization and wake up inspiration that you never knew existed in your
company. Experienced planners of team building events know how to bring your coworkers and
employees together in new ways that highlight the strengths you know they have, and show them how
to use those strengths to build a solid service or production team that simply can't be beat.

Chillisauce, a UK company that specializes in corporate events and group tours, explains that team
building challenges can be beneficial in highlighting how work obstacles are overcome by working
together. Among the fun team building activities that they've offered are a Limousine Treasure Hunt, a
Spy Mission, Dragon Boat Racing and the opportunity to participate in It's a Knockout!

Other companies plan 'Service Days' that may include building a children's playground for charity or
pitching in to completely renovate a home for a local charity. In any case, the value of the day is in the
lessons carried home at its end - that the team can overcome anything by getting to know each other
and working together - as a team with unique members.

 Team building has become one of the newest buzz words in the corporate lexicon. In fact, for at least
the last decade surveys of business leaders in every industry have shown that the prime characteristic
they look for in new hires is the ability to work with a team. And why not? Research has shown that
when people work in teams, they can accomplish far more than a group of individuals working
together. But not all team building activities are created equal. Over the last few years, some industry
experts have leveled criticism at the 'quick-fix' attitude that has been adopted by many companies who
attempt to create or sponsor their own team building activities.

In order to be effective, say experts in corporate teams, a team building event must:

- Be integrated with real work goals.

o It's not enough to plan a fun day of activities for your team. The team building event that you plan
should help focus the members of the team on what's not working and what needs to happen for the
team to work together.

- Be part of an overall company goal.

o Plan team building activities and events as part of the company's overall plan for success. That
means more than just a one off event to go buggy riding. Team building events should be an ongoing,
annual or semi-annual event.

- Be planned by a team. o After all, the goal is to promote teamwork. The planning team should
model the behavior that you expect it to promote.

- Be followed up with real work integration.

o A one off event that has no follow up in the work world will be seen as a holiday at best - and a
cynical attempt at manipulation at worst. To be meaningful, team building efforts must continue beyond
the event day.

- Be reinforced by rewarding teamwork and team behavior.

o Once you have a team that's working as a team, you need to reinforce that behavior by rewarding it.
Recognition of teams that are working exceptionally well, special corporate events to mark team
accomplishments and notice in the company newsletter are all ways to reinforce and reward teamwork
within your company.

If planning an event that will do all that seems daunting, keep in mind that there are companies who
make this their business. A company like that specialises in building team activities can offer your
company custom team building activities that are designed to help your employees and coworkers
focus on the importance of working together as a team.
