In this 4-part blog series we will be focusing my 4 BrandUP Components of building a powerful Team Brand; Team Building, Communication, Personal Brand Development & Work-Life Balance. Today I am tackling Team Building Tips that will help you build trust and communication within your team.
Team building tips for creating a cohesive team:
- Hold regular team meetings: While it may seem obvious, many business owners do not meet with their teams consistently and that results in a disconnected group of individuals who are striving for what their interpretation of the end goal is! When the team feels connected to each other and the vision of your company you will create a workplace culture that is positive and productive.
- Schedule quarterly FUN events: Companies like Zappos and Amazon know that whether it’s a mystery dinner, themed party, or day cruise on a lake, these relaxed environments to socialize enhance productivity, increase job satisfaction, build trust, and breed innovation and creativity. When you provide fun for your team, it becomes contagious and will enhance your customer’s experience, too!! Your team will deliver better service with a great attitude when you provide them with something to be happy about!
- Provide a comfortable environment: Create a ‘work’ space that is ideal for collaboration in a more relaxed setting. Stock healthy snacks and beverages to promote wellness in the workplace. Healthy, happy employees are absent less often, more motivated and productive, and you will reduce costs due to employee turnover and recruitment expense.
