Need some tips for team building? Whether you’re planning an event or working on team building long term, a big challenge for teams is a lack of clarity on individual roles and responsibilities. Clarify roles, institute accountability and achieve your common vision and goals.
For upcoming events, projects or during your quarterly review, consider this:
How clear is our team’s understanding of their specific roles?
Do YOU understand your team’s roles and responsibilities?
Where do roles and responsibilities overlap between individual team members?
Where do roles and responsibilities overlap with other departments?
Do you have the right strategies for accountability in place?
If you’re having trouble answering these questions, make a team building activity out of getting the answers. Have each team member write a poem about their role or department and share it within your team.
Who, what, when, where, why poems should be five lines long. The poem should tell a story or give a strong picture of someone or something. Each line should answer on of the “w” questions in the order listed above. When you read the poem, it should sound like a two sentences put together.
