Experiential Team Building Activities

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

“A group becomes a team when each member is sure enough of themselves and their contribution to praise the skills of others.” – Norman Shidle

Any organization relies on the work of individuals, cooperation as a team, and a cohesive interdependence to achieve success. In order to become a cohesive and successful team takes time, training and events that test and push the group to achieve more than they thought possible. Through Drum Beat’s Experiential Team Building Activities your organization and employees will develop stronger self confidence, self esteem and a personal sense of value all while having a great and entertaining time.

What is Experiential?

As it suggests experiential learning generally means a ‘hands-on’ experience that transfers a physical set of skills from one person to another to achieve internal personal development. Rather than conventional learning that provides a pre-determined goal of knowledge transfer usually for an external purpose, like learning new corporate policies. Experiential team building activities are developed to hone a person’s self-worth and build individual and team confidence. Both types of learning are just as necessary as the other in order to build a solid team. Conventional learning focuses on the actual knowledge required while physical team building activities explore personal self-development in order to participate effectively in a team.

Why Experiential is Essential

Most organizations or businesses see conventional knowledge as the best way or the most expedient way to impart knowledge. This is true for the specific objectives of any business. If you are revealing a new product line you want to make sure the sales staff understands what it is, its features and price points. Yet if you want a team that not only understands the purpose but goes beyond all expectations, their own personal development as an individual and a team need to be fostered, grown and expanded through team building activities.

By developing your employee’s personal capabilities beyond product or company knowledge their own self-esteem, confidence, personal strengths and personal sense of purpose and fulfillment will in-turn improve their attitudes, morale, and emotional well-being. This is critical as it directly affects a person’s productivity. Giving employees all the tools to succeed include both conventional knowledge and personal development through experiential learning and team building activities.

Experience Builds a Team

Successful teams are built through developing trust, relationships and knowledge of each person’s capabilities, both strengths and weaknesses. These activities are the building blocks of allowing a fun and positive experience to build trust among peers and colleagues and make effective working relationships. The results of effective team building are productivity, accountability and leadership skills.

As experiential learning is often a team effort it imparts a sense of togetherness and through its very hands-on nature a physical level of excitement not elicited through a conventional method. Drum Beats provides an exciting, hands-on and team work driven experience that ensures that your corporate team building activities are a positive, individual and team building exercise that they will not soon forget. Drum Beats, located in Sydney, New South Wales, provides shows and corporate events throughout Australia. We look forward to making your next Corporate Seminar or Conference an excitement filled event.

Providing corporate entertainment , building morale and excitement can be a difficult task, especially in large corporations that can be impersonal. If you want amazing productivity and loyal employees it may be time to rethink how you provide certain benefits for them. It’s time to spend a little extra effort in corporate entertainment, away from work, in order to increase their loyalty, productivity and turn them into a brand ambassador. By building corporate entertainment excitement, employees are rewarded for their hard work and the corporate rewards are immediate.

Building Morale

Gallup through corporate surveys estimated that businesses lose billions of dollars from their bottom line through absenteeism and lost productivity as a direct result of low morale. Even marginal morale differences between a highly motivated workforce and employees that are not dissatisfied can cause lost profits. Building morale can be a simple daily, weekly, monthly and annual task through simple and effective corporate entertainment events. Build these ideas into your routines to start building employee satisfaction, loyalty and motivation:

  • Recognize life milestones of employees such as Birthdays and weddings with a card or cake.
  • Keep them informed, sharing financial data that lets them recognize how bad choices could affect their position in the future.
  • Use open management by listening to employee’s ideas and recognizing them when you can implement one.
  • Make work life as comfortable as possible, with comfy chairs, mood lighting and the right tools for the job.
  • Encourage individual or group breaks for coffee, a brisk walk or other small activities. 15 minutes will gain your more in productivity.
  • Thank your employees with a smile, handshake and card publicly for the great work they have been doing. It will go further than impersonal cash incentives.
  • Search online for other ideas and implement them, changing tactics quarterly to keep the positive reinforcement fresh.

Exciting Corporate Entertainment

One of the best way to keep the morale of your company going in the right direction is rewarding departments, groups of employees or if a company-wide goal was met the entire company with a special event either during or after work hours. There are many ways you can incorporate Drum Beats Corporate Entertainment excitement into a departmental meeting, a corporate lunch, a Quarterly Social Event, or into your annual conference.
