There are a lot of team-building activities out there that waste time and resources without actually connecting your employees to one another. The success of an activity often comes down to having a clear objective.
- It's important that your objective is attainable, relevant to the situations your team members are currently facing, and about to be reinforced for the foreseeable future.
- This activity shouldn't strive to fix all broken gears in your business. Instead, it is one small step of many.
- Should your activity be competitive? That all depends on past experience with your team, how they deal with defeat, and whether you as the manager can effectively dissolve conflict.
