When we were in school, there were days when we were encouraged to wear certain colors or dress a certain way (nerd day) to show our school spirit. Maybe it was for the Homecoming game, or to encourage another student going through a rough patch in life. Whatever it was, it worked, and just for a few hours on those days, we all felt a little closer to our peers.
Spirit days do not have to end once we’re no longer learning. Heck, we’re still learning, even when school is just a distant memory. Now that we’re older maybe we should start to take those “spirit day” lessons into today’s businesses with team building.
Because nothing says “team building” like spirit days do:
One characteristic of a winning business culture is the ability to cut loose and have fun with employees and staff. As a team leader, you’re the cheerleader behind your business, and that’s no easy task. Creating an environment where team building occurs naturally is one of the best methods for a successful business, and the payoff is seen in higher levels of productivity, better communication and just a “gosh darn” fun place to work.
