What Are the Benefits of Team Building Activities? [Infographic]

Managing a team of varied personalities in an office environment is sometimes like herding cats. As a business owner or manager, getting everyone to follow one gameplan or even play in the same ballpark is a challenge. Team building exercises are touted to help in a variety of ways:

  • Improves morale and leadership skills
  • Breaks down barriers and boundaries both culturally and hierarchical
  • Clearly defines objectives and goals
  • Improves productivity
  • Reveals strengths and weaknesses
  • Improves problem solving capabilities
  • Clarifies processes and procedures
  • Improves communications
  • Develops team roles
