I am often asked to
facilitate team building events. Occasionally the person coordinating the
event from the client corporation is tasked with setting up a fun day, but
most often the team’s manager is hoping to solve a problem within the team.
It is important to know what you want from a team-building event before
contacting a potential facilitator or facility. When I am contacted about
team building, I listen to what the coordinator says is needed, which
typically emphasizes the word “FUN”. My response is “I have lots of
activities that are fun, so we can definitely do that. What is it you want
your team(s) to learn at this event?”
Questions for Team Building Event Coordinator:.
1. Does the team have an issue
that is keeping them from moving forward with their work?
2. Does the team have a
defined mission and goals or objectives?
3. Does the team need to
experience designing processes, planning quality improvement efforts,
serving customer well , solving problems, risk-taking, or making decisions
on their own?
