Team building is more than just your employees working together. It’s about working together at maximum efficiency for the team and the company. The best ways to grow and nurture a team is through cooperation and competition. The competition isn’t against other team members, but other people whether it is in a race or other activity.
Cooperation to Overcome Challenges
When a person faces a challenge whether it is in the workplace or on a ropes course in Maryland, it’s important they can count on their team to help them through. We all face issues and problems that we can’t always face alone and a fresh perspective or a helping hand can mean the difference between failure and success.
Our challenges are designed to nurture this cooperation. If you can overcome the challenges, you’re encouraged to help those who can’t and they’re encouraged to help you when you’re in trouble. It becomes more comfortable, so when you need help in the working world, you can ask without a problem.
Competition Breeds Loyalty and Determination
Adversity is a natural way to bring people together and few things can create both competition and adversity than a race such as Tough Mudder or any other the other unique and fun races like zombie runs, color runs, etc. They’re more than just races, they’re obstacles as well. They’ll push the team in ways you’d never expect. If they are going to get through it, then they’ll need to help each other.
The race isn’t just against one another, it’s against other teams. The team that works together the best and looks after all the teammates will be the successful one.
Give Your Team Something to Fight For
When a team has a goal and a reason to fight to win and each other, you’ll see an improvement in how they work together. Even divisive personalities can work together when they’re working towards something larger than their own disagreements.
This could be a team project with a tight deadline or a ropes course where they watch their team falter. They’ll get a boost helping their team and when the project is over they know they’ve made a major contribution to it.
