Assume you have a small business of 20 people making doors for builders, merchant and home owners.
Your team is assigned with a task of making 500 doors this week. So, this task needs to be clearly communicated among the production team. Here, your team is facing a complex target and requires collaboration to solve difficult problems. Also, brainstorming to exchange ideas can bring creativity and find the best way to deliver on time. Like, clear duties can be assigned to employees, one person needs to inform other if they wait for them to finish their task, team can be shuffled depending upon their capabilities to get better results and identify if employees have any personal problems, home issues.
Your team needs fresh ideas for making 500 doors this week. The more diverse your team will be, higher will be number of ideas generated by them and many possibilities can be considered to make a decision instead of a just relying on an individual idea.
Team building helps in open communication, and between your production, marketing, administration and management. This further improves quality of overall task. Like, the production is booked for this week and any new orders should be scheduled next week and this needs to be communicated to clients and marketing, office administration and management.
As your employees share new ideas to achieve this task, they will feel valued when any of their idea starts producing results. This helps in improving their confidence, builds trust with others, get motivated to contribute more and get ready to take new challenges.
Team building can create confidence for employees to take more risks and aim for higher targets, but these are measured with consequences. This helps in grabbing the opportunity right on time rather than what an Individual would do.
