Is team building worth it? There are so many negative cliches about team programs that it’s hard to initiate an activity with a positive attitude from your colleagues. And even though I’m a professional team building facilitator, I get that!
Team building during lunch is a great solution because it fits into a set time limit and it can be DIY or professionally facilitated. And very importantly, everybody gets to eat a good lunch! If done effectively, your colleagues will love this. This could be good news for your talent retention rate, employee engagement, company culture, and ultimately, your bottom line.
In 2013, the New York Times coined Nashville as the new “it” city. Maybe they’ve made this claim about other cities since, but make no mistake; Nashville is no flavor of the week…or even of the year. We’re still growing, entertaining and booming five years later. This means more companies than ever are looking for fun and unique group activities in Nashville.
Motivational team building activities shouldn’t be so hard to find… but they are. How many times have you planned what promised to be a great program but then you find yourself sitting in the back row, smiling at the facilitator’s catchy sound bites in between inconspicuously checking your email on your device by holding it low behind the seat in front of you.
Are you a company looking for a few effective ways to boost employee engagement? What about creating a friendly office culture that makes employees excited about coming to work everyday?
Just the mention of the word team building can bring a sweat to the brow of any business owner or company manager. Team activities are often dreaded in the workplace by both leaders and employees. Often, they’re mandated by leadership or HR yet they follow an antiquated, by-the-book rationale that fails miserably to engage and unite.
