Team building is about helping individuals work as a cohesive group where all members feel invested in the direction and accomplishments of the team. All members have input towards developing goals and defining the steps to take to reach those goals. Everyone is able to work together to achieve the group’s objectives.
Employers believe that highly collaborative teams will achieve greater productivity, higher morale, less counter-productive conflict, and better customer relations.
Even though companies want all of their employees to have team building skills, they are particularly important for managers, supervisors, and outside consultants that oversee groups of employees.
Edzes team building involves experiential learning- learning by doing. The activities will include a mix of personal fitness exercises that seek to energize the participants yet flexible to accommodate diverse age brackets. These will be conducted early in the mornings after which the participants will be taken through experiential activities that bring out individual personalities, interpersonal relations, leadership, communication and unlock barriers to effective teamwork.
Edzes team building approach covers:
Physical fitness: Exercise promotes better circulation, which allows ample amounts of blood to reach the brain consistently. Exercise encourages goal achievement. Fitness programs demand commitment and goal setting. When staff are familiar with these important tasks, they’ll also carry them into the workplace.
Outdoor activities- Most of the team building activities are tailor-made to match the facilities available. These include well manicured lawns and water facilities if available.
Indoor activities- A few indoor activities are held to complement the outdoor activities. At the end, participants retreat to strategise on how to implement the lessons learnt.
