Teambuilding programs are a great way to build upon employee communication skills, company morale and overall productivity.
CREATIVE teambuilding is an even better way to generate listening skills, empathetic skills and thinking skills.
Todays creative teambuilding workshop with Mars employees was a great example of this concept. Though small (5) , they were a group used to working with each other, being in a research and design team. Sometimes however, such closeness can germinate negative elements such as familiarity and complacency. Creative teambuilding can help to overcome these workplace issues through fostering an environment of listening and co-operating. By describing and communicating an individuals vision of what a project – in this case a coffee cup – should look like, participants are encouraged to increase their awareness of another individuals personal preferences – this develops a number of skills in the group participants such as listening, empathy and bonding. The project must be completed in a certain time frame which also focuses on time management skills within a studio environment and enables a team member to put themselves in another’s place, and developing workplace skills that include direct one-on-one discussion of aesthetic preferences. The general group communication is in an informal relaxed environment, enabling team members to realise their visions which helps to extend and consolidate understandings of fellow workmates, which in turn creates a more thorough understanding of workplace communications and networkings by increasing abilities to listen, and be considerate to other’s needs within the team.
