5 teambuilding techniques you should be using

It's easy, when considering a multi-national corporation such as Berkshire Hathaway or Royal Dutch Shell, to see large companies as a faceless monolith of financial input and output without considering the millions of small duties that contribute to its entirety.

At their core, all businesses rely on individuals who are passionate about being part of something bigger than themselves, and whilst doing a stellar job can bring about positive change in your company, it means next to nothing if the team isn’t moving towards specific shared goals.

    There is nothing wrong with pizza parties and company Olympics - they can be great especially when care is taken to leave nobody behind. But don't confuse that with team development. A team is a special kind of group that has developed the capacity to act as one coherent whole. Much more than social interaction, a team shares an identity around a shared sense of purpose.

There are processes by which we can clarify that sense of purpose, define what success looks like and agree the values we will espouse. And it never stops! We can always aspire to be more closely bound in our mutual endeavours. Team building might be fun but it is certainly serious. Let's not pretend we are doing it if we are not!
