Team players, team spirit… what’s gonna work? TEAMWORK! We know the drill, we’ve heard the message over and over again. A business needs a great team to champion it into success. But, if you spend the time, energy and money on office team building, what happens when one member of your team reaches their maximum potential? What happens when they’re fully trained in their position and a fully integrated member of the team? Are they then going to take their piece of the cake you’ve baked and leave your team with the crumbs?
No, not if you’re doing the right kind of team building.
Individual training is important for your business, especially since you need each employee to be an expert in their job. That type of training keeps an employee confident in their skills, benefitting self-esteem and enhancing motivation and productivity. That also helps an employee take those skills to a different company, eliminating the investment you’ve made in that person.
Team building takes that employee and gives them the skills and understanding needed to be a team player on YOUR team. You’re building a force of people who know how to get a job done together, where productivity and motivation are exponentially increased. Your business becomes a success through the efforts of your team and a little something called, “team esteem!”
“Team esteem” benefits your business and your employees – members of a team who are valued are less likely to take the cake and run, so to speak. They like the office dynamic and their importance on the team. The “feel good” vibes become too much to give up and they’re hooked on the feeling of teamwork. Your investment in your people is more than job-related skills, it is the overall “woo-hoo!” of being on a winning team… YOUR team.
Spending the time to build your team the right way pays off in so many different ways. It is like having your cake and eating it, too. Only, you’re all sharing that feeling of success and pride together, building an unstoppable force for success that meets everyone’s expectations… and keeps ‘em coming back for more.
