Team Building for Communication

Team Building for Communication

At best, day-to-day poor communication can lead to misunderstandings. At worst, it can lead to complete breakdown and conflict. While communication among team members won’t always be perfect, an ongoing culture of poor communication is a disaster for your business.

The Challenge for Managers

The sheer number of communication platforms available in 2019 is a double-edged sword. Although the speed and accessibility of communication is a benefit, the volume and variety of channels can lead to people feeling stressed and under pressure. It’s these factors, plus a lack of clarity, which can lead to a range of problems.

Managers face a complex challenge to ensure their teams build and maintain positive and productive communication at work. Etiquette for face-to-face and electronic communications can differ across personal and professional domains and different industry sector cultures. If expectations aren’t set, modelled and maintained, employees can drift into poor practices, creating a knock-on effect for the whole business.

Leaders may intend to create an open and positive communication culture but may find that this is not evident on the ground. Lack of trust, fear of repercussions or feeling that the issue does not merit attention are some of the reasons that communication between employees and the manager can decline.

Team Communication Workshops

An EML team building activity day is a positive way of establishing and maintaining good team communications. It’s also a great option when teams need bringing together for some remedial work during challenging times. Investing in employees will ensure both managers and their subordinates feel supported. They can return to the work environment equipped with the tools they need to implement the learning from the team building workshop.

At EML we offer a wide range of high-quality team building workshops that address the communication issues your teams might be facing. Take the LEGO Master Builder workshop. This workshop places team communication issues under the microscope. Working on a task together by taking on different roles, team members develop collaboration and trust. It’s also loads of fun!

The workshop is adaptable. It can cover not just face-to-face but remote communication. This makes it suitable for distributed teams who rely on remote communication to deliver business objectives.

Alternatively, opt for a psychometric workshop. These can help team members identify their different communication styles and improve their interactions with other team memebrs and customers. Choose from workshops based on MBTI, Belbin Team Roles and Everything DiSC.

Participants in these workshops will leave understanding their own communication areas for development. It also helps people to understand their colleagues better. Participation can also provide businesses with unique insights into additional training needs for their team.

“Thank you for yesterday, it was lovely to meet you both, and it was a great day. Lots of positive feedback and I think we really took a lot away, especially from the MBTI. We’re currently trying to find a space to hang our artistic masterpiece!”

Many thanks to Neil and Ruth for leading our virtual team building exercise... Many laughs were had while scrambling to collect the twenty items...!!! The Murder Mystery was my favourite and my team winning was the icing on the cake. The Haka showed how uncoordinated we are but the laughs ...just proves what an enjoyable experience we all had.
