3 ways Captiva/Sanibel Island Team Building Can Help Your Business
Increase engagement at your next meeting or conference:
Having a meeting or conference at any beautiful location can always be a challenge… how do you balance the work that you need to get accomplished with time to enjoy your surroundings. Team building is a great option for addressing both! Depending on the property, activities can often be done outdoors on-site, at adjacent parks or associated property, and even on the water. But what really makes this option different is our expert facilitation by trained business professionals. Take for example our On Course to Excellence sailing program. Rather than being run by the local sailing school, this entire program was develop by a business professional with over 40 years of corporate business experience who also happens to be a highly skilled sailor. The executive team at AAPS quickly discovered that the difference is entirely evident in the results!
Make your meeting topics really stick:
“I know you think you understand what you thought I said but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant” (Alan Greenspan). This quote should ring true to anyone who runs meetings, delivers training, or simply has to pass information along to others. But if communication is so challenging, what tools do we have to help bridge this gap. Team building and experiential learning strategies are among the most powerful options to help make complex ideas, concepts, and information more understandable and memorable. We tend to forget what we hear, but recall what we do, so let’s get everyone involved. And best of all, not only does team-building work, as a tool to drive learning, but it can be fun as well. Team building is a win-win for both fun and learning!
Break down barriers & improve communication:
Isn’t it amazing how quickly we can develop strong opinions of others, and even organizations, and how quickly these opinions can impact the way we communicate. Even within our own organizations, how quickly walls can develop between individuals, teams, departments, and even clients. What’s unfortunate is that many of these walls develop due to false assumptions and poor communication. So how can you begin breaking down these walls? One of the best ways is to begin developing a positive common history, examples of effective behavior that can be used as reference moving forward. Team building is a perfect tool for developing these positive experiences. Through fun and engaging exercises, individuals and teams begin working together toward common goals, overcoming obstacles along the way, and demonstrating effective communication. They quickly discover that many of their previous assumptions may have been incorrect and that the ones that were accurate are in reality quite manageable. Team building can help your team communicate better, manage conflict more openly, acknowledge and respect differences, and break down barriers that may have developed in the workplace.
Team Building Should be about Outcomes
- Alignment: Getting teams rowing in the same direction, toward common goals with clear expectations and a communication process that accommodates change.
- Assimilation: Building common ground and helping everyone feel part of the team by discovering shared vision and values.
- Experience: Helping increase awareness, challenge your perspective, and establish a common history that everyone can draw upon.
- Development: Enabling people to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses while creating opportunities to test, practice, and refine new behaviors.
- Collaboration: Creating an open and trusting environment where everyone is engaged, contributes, and feels valued by the team.
