Commitment and continuation are key to Team Bonding success.
It is important to have full commitment from everyone involved in order to run a successful Team Bonding event.
Always lead the action.
You’ve been to a corporate event or participated in “team-building” activities where everyone meant to be a team, but everything seems forced and awkward, right? Where there was a lot of sighing, eye-rolling, and plain old resistance to the idea of team development?
You must set an example for the others as a leader. If you’re enthusiastic about your event and you lead your team by example, they’re more likely to get right behind you rather than straddling at the back and resisting the process.
There will always be one or two who don’t want to get involved, but if everyone else is on board, then they’ll be much more motivated to play their part. Just be sure to honor everyone’s style during your event.
Keep the momentum going.
Don’t make the mistake of returning from a team development exercise having learned nothing. Continue the momentum means maintaining the positive feelings and relationships you built during the day of your event. Be sure to continuously review and evaluate your teams progress.
- Is the team getting the results that are expected by its customers or others in the company?
- Does the team set up mechanisms to continually ask, “how are we doing?”
Hold regular staff meetings to build a peak performance organization. Bring your people together weekly, at a fixed time, to catch up on progress, learn how the company is doing, and share ideas.
How do you show your commitment to team development?
The corporate world is experiencing a massive shift. A new generation is entering the workforce, many are retiring, and the formula for leadership is being re-invented. Dictatorships are giving way to collective organizational vision creation. Our titles, age, or departmental role do not define us. Focus is shifting from individual acceleration to purpose-driven teamwork. (more…)
There are little things that people do that can cause us to scream in our heads – “Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God, will you stop PLEASE!” – but the annoyances are usually so trivial that no one ever really shares their frustration out loud…at least not until it’s too late to sound rational.

How to become an impactful leader: Throughout history many leaders have inspired us to change the world from Gandhi to Alexander the Great. These particular leaders didn’t leave a mark by just hanging out. They led by taking action and inspiring people to follow them.
“Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision.”- Henry Kissinger In order to lead, sometimes it is necessary to inspire. Leaders invoke the passion and drive into their team in order for hard work to be done. Team bonding quotes have the ability to encourage, but they also allow us to remember the great leaders of the past.
In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.
