”I just try to get out of my own way because if anyone is their own worst enemy, it’s usually you.” – Taylor Dayneteamwork
Many team building tips focus on how you can influence others to collaborate… communicate… just speak to each other! Meanwhile, networking and career building advice tends to focus more on you, the individual.
The truth is, all of your workplace and career challenges are connected. Your own beliefs and actions are always important, especially while facing teamwork challenges. If you want to build stronger bonds with your team, look at what you’re doing.
When you plan a team building event, are you participating along with everyone else? Do you run the meeting icebreakers rather than participating in them? Are you participating in the policies / programs / social activities that you created to get everyone else to work together?
Event planning and leading the charge might be your biggest strengths, but you also need to be a team player to see results. If your team is small and someone always needs to stand on the sidelines to orchestrate teamwork, mix it up. Identify team members with similar strengths that want to run an event or activity. Put them in charge. Become a participant.
Don’t be your own worst team building enemy. Work hard, be nice to people, remain flexible and pay attention to what you’re doing. You. Yourself. And…you.
What are teamwork challenges you’re facing today? Is there anything you could do differently to overcome them?
One of the most crucial factors in the success of your business is how well your team works together. Corporate team building can be an effective and transformative strategy for helping business executives and their employees to feel more invested in their careers and each other.
How does the power of play influence success at work? Many people are working longer and harder, thinking that this will solve the problem of an ever-increasing workload. But they are still falling behind, becoming chronically overwhelmed, and burning out. Work is where we spend much of our time. That is why it is especially important for us to play during work. Without some recreation, our work suffers. Success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time you work. It depends on upon the quality of your work. And the quality of your work is highly dependent on your well-being.
How to embrace team collaboration? For an organization to run smoothly and meet its goals, it is important to foster a work environment that supports collaboration amongst colleagues. Unfortunately for most organizations, this does not occur naturally, and thus you must make an effort and take steps to help build and sustain a cooperative work environment.
