In times of increasing change organisations have to find ways of responding creatively. Creative responses require the organisation's members to co-operate with each other. It is rare that one person can produce the ideas required or carry them out. Team building activities (sponsored link) increase the amount of effective co-operation in the organisation. Managers must build co-operation within and between teams to get the best results.
In a typical corporate team building event a group of staff, with their manager, clarify and review their purpose and objectives. They identify any obstacles in the way of achieving these objectives and plan future progress. This is rarely a straightforward process. Any lack of trust and openness in the team will create communication difficulties. Many team members anticipate the process being stressful and are somewhat anxious about the prospect. Most team building activities employ an independent process manager or "facilitator" who is outside the team. He or she creates a safe atmosphere, encourages limited risk taking and generates effective procedures to help the team do its work.
