Aloha Atlanta recently teamed up with the McKesson Corporation for a luau inspired team-building event that started with four (1) hour private hula coaching sessions at the company headquarters. A week later, we had a chance to see what each group came up with. And there wasn’t one team that didn’t surprise us! Between our coaching lessons and the actual hula competition day, each group delegated roles, worked on the material we taught, and added whole new creative elements to their dances. We don’t know how the panel of judges were able to decide on a winner! One of the things we love most is learning in unexpected places. And after working with McKesson, a corporation with great company culture - we learned a few things we thought we’d share in 3 Benefits of Team Building:
Activities that allow a team to solve a problem can easily transfer into the workplace. Team building activities can give employees a structured way to solve a problem as a team, while making each member aware of the resources that each team member brings to the table.
2. Encourage Creativity
Like structured problem solving, activities that allow team members to create and develop an idea can transfer into the workplace as well. Encouraging creativity can lead to new and more efficient ways of doing things, or even help team members develop new skills in other areas of the business.
3. Improve Productivity
One of main goals of team building is to improve productivity. And in team building, employees learn to work together more effectively and efficiently. Fostering problem-solving skills and encouraging creativity are two strong ways a company can improve productivity over the long term.
