Two types of teams exist: those that exude teamwork and those that do not.
Ensuring that your team is continuously practicing teamwork is essential to achieving a high level of organizational success and efficiency. In the words of basketball legend Michael Jordan: “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.”
The pillars of teamwork are: strong relationships, trust, and communication. Molding and developing a team with these attributes is well worth the effort!
So, how do you take your team to the championship level?
Practice makes perfect—so a key way to develop a teamwork mentality is to engage team members in activities that promote teamwork, specifically exercises in which every link of your team has an active role in the team’s overall success.
We’ve seen success with this approach firsthand with City Beach’s High Ropes Adventures courses. The High Ropes Adventure courses are a fun, adventurous challenge for both the mind and body, and can only be successfully achieved with the full cooperation and effort of each team member. Team members work together, encourage each other, and achieve together.
Our City Beach facilitators take care of logistics by customizing a course that is ideal for your team’s size and skill level. This clears the way for your team to fully engage in working as a singular unit, so that relationship building, trust, and top-notch communications skills can be honed.
Best of all, your team will return to the workplace having gained the skills to better cooperate and communicate with each other – a win-win for all!
