Give compliments and praise. A little, “Atta boy” or high five can go a long way.
When the going gets tough, the tough help you get going! We are all unique with different strengths and weaknesses. That is what makes working as a team so magical. One person can pick up the slack where others might falter.
“Encouragement is the oxygen of the soul.” -George M. Adams
If you’ve ever been a part of one of those extreme adventure races, you know it can’t be done alone. This is a great team bonding experience. There’s mud, 10 foot walls, deep water and ice. Your mental and physical limits are tested.
What is the best way to overcome the exhaustion and fear? It’s knowing that someone has your back. When you can’t get over that wall by yourself, someone will be there to pull you up. If you are falling behind, your teammates will be there to cheer you on.
You don’t have to run 10 miles and low crawl under barbed-wire fences to bond with your teammates though! During team bonding programs or every day projects, providing an encouraging word or a helping hand can leave you and your teammate feeling motivated and connected.
Do you use encouragement to boost team bonding?
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.

And the quality of your work is highly dependent on your well-being.
Know each other as people, not just professionals. We’re all so much more than our job titles. We have interests that may have drawn each of us to our roles and help us excel within them. There are easy team building icebreaker activities for work that will help you and your team bond and get to know each other as more than just your role in the office. (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.

We learn early in our lives that it’s better to win, and in order to win, we need to be competitive.
In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
Be a good leader: Pay attention! Complacency at work leads to less innovation, less trust and less loyalty within your organization. Are you encouraging change? Do you reward failure? Is turnover on the rise? Are you making decisions based on intuition and information? Or, only to relieve a sense of anxiety? (more…)
