Commitment and continuation are key to team bonding success.

Investing in employee development and giving your team opportunities to learn and grow is a vital aspect of keeping them engaged and excited to come to work. Employee engagement activities and team development activities bring teams together so they can focus on creating stronger bonds while developing professionally. It is important to have full commitment from everyone involved in order to run a successful employee engagement activity.

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 others as a leader. If you’re enthusiastic about your event and you lead your team by example, your team is 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 team’s progress.

  • Is the team getting the results 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 and motivate your team. 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?

Team development can be accomplished in a variety of ways. TeamBonding offers a variety of virtual, hybrid, and in-person professional training and development programs to create effective teams.
