Corporate Team Building needs a heart beat to be effective

Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Every organization whether comprised of 20 or 20,000 employees, work together in teams at various times to achieve a common goal of productivity or achievement. The results of your employees reflect a direct correlation to their interaction within the team, their own personal development and whether the team has bonded outside of work activities.  Corporate team building activities have been scientifically proven to bolster productivity, self confidence and career development.

The Science of Team Building

Scientifically proven means that there are quantifiable results that happen when this activity is performed to the betterment of the company including increased results, better morale, more cohesive teams and better interpersonal employee relationships. A research group from the University of Central Florida in 2009 analyzed data from 103 team building studies from 1950-2007. The analysis revealed that corporate team building had direct positive effects on how people felt about their team members and surprisingly a strong effect in improving processes. Without specifically improving the nature of the business process, this study showed that by improving team mechanics the process is therefore also improved. 

Other effects revealed that team building activities help to improve goal-setting and clarify roles as well as improved interpersonal relations. Teams developed through experiential activities also proved more capable at solving problems. It is clear why so many large corporations have included these activities into monthly events that help their bottom line.


 

Active Team Building

The real key to providing a truly uplifting team building event is participation. Imagine 1000 employees all beating in rhythm under the expertise of Drum Beats facilitators. Employees arrive to their seats and find a drum and their curiosity picks up. Soon, as with the hands beating on the drums, their hearts beat with an energy that flows through and around everyone creating a cacophony of sounds through their own teamwork. The realization of concerted effort and individual development has in fact created a musical work of art dawns. Their experience has allowed them a mutual experience to draw on. 

Making 1000 drums beat in rhythm is harder than it sounds and only through a concerted effort and mutual respect can the challenge be overcome and produce a cohesive result. The result of this activity includes reduced stress, an improved immune response and personal developments including improved intuition, creativity, focus and awareness of group dynamics.
