Dr. Scott Simmerman’s latest blog Team Building and Learning – How to make changes is great at summing up some of the reasons why active team building can be so beneficial for a team.
He states that participating and practising is 15 times more impactful than sitting in a classroom. We can be taught, and we can know, but it is far more difficult to put this knowledge into action in the work place. Organisations need to use engaging activities to encourage commitment to change.
This is where team building activities become so valuable to companies. Team building activities encourage people to look at their own actions and analyse how they work with other members of their team. Instead of studying this in a classroom, they are out in the field experiencing these interactions first hand.
