What are team building activities?
Team building activities comprise a set of actions created to improve social relations and define the tasks of the elements of a team, in a collaboration between all.
With time, these activities can contribute to improving the team’s performance and behavior. The concept of team building is one of the bases of the Organizational Development Theory, important in the management of human resources.
What are the objectives of a team building activity?
The activities we develop are thought together with the customer. In this way, we can understand the skills that need to be worked on a team. After that, the team building actions are developed, the activities in which the team will participate.
For example, if the goal is to work on communication between team members, the proposed activities go according to that goal. This is a way to ensure that the hours of team building have an application to each person’s daily work.
What skills can be worked on in a Smart Set activity?
More than just defining team building activities, our focus is on the skills to be developed.
We work 14 skills, which are the basis of the 25 team building activities that we can customize for your company. Some of the activities can work more than a competency.
