Teamwork is a skill, and like any skill it can be improved and developed with training and practice. The best teams are those who know their individual strengths and weaknesses, and are able to overcome them to become more productive.
Companies in Barrie trust our group activities to help their teams master the foundations of good teamwork.
There are three foundations of teamwork that are the building blocks of working cohesively together in a group.
At the core of every team is its leader, and the team's trust in that leader. The best leaders can drive their team towards a common goal, and help overcome obstacles along the way. Without trust and leadership, teammates will inevitably start to go off in separate directions.
Our popular business simulation, Cardboard Boat Building Challenge, is a great way to improve and develop your team's leadership and encourage their teamwork. As teams work together to build boats out of cardboard, they'll find they need strong leadership and trust in each other to succeed in the water.
Anyone who has ever played a game of "Telephone" knows how important communication is. Teamwork depends on individuals having a clear understanding of their roles and how they fit into the big picture.
We put the focus on communication in activities like Going Live, where teams need to develop a three-minute news broadcast. Every person on the team is assigned a specific role on the news team, and their success depends on being able to communicate ideas and last-minute changes to each other when it comes time to broadcast.
The true test of teamwork comes when things go wrong – budgets change, team members leave, or deadlines advance. Adaptability is the third foundation of teamwork, because only well-functioning teams are equipped to handle these types of unexpected challenges.
You can make adaptability a priority with our race-style activities like The Amazing Chase. Have your teams compete in a race through Barrie and learn to deal with the curveballs that come at "Road Block" and "Detour" challenges. By the end of the race, your teams will be ready for anything!
You can partner with us on an event that you run yourself, or we can come in to take care of every detail. Barrie Team Building is trusted for fast, flexible, and fun solutions that help improve teamwork and build stronger bonds. Our variety of activities cover a range of budgets and team building goals.
