If you are heading up a business, you need to appreciate the importance of the analogy to the machine. If all of the cogs and components are working as they should, and towards the same end, then the machine is very productive. If certain parts are uncooperative and working against the greater whole, the machine will break down and be completely ineffective.
This is not a statement meant to encourage getting rid of employees, but rather finding a means for all of these employees to work better as a unit. There is nothing quite like team building activities to do just that.
What Are Team Building Activities?
To put it plainly, team building activities are group events that encourage people to work together towards a common goal. The game or planned event itself will change based on the nature of the size of the workplace, but the premise always remains the same: get people to have fun while learning to problem solve and work together cohesively.
What To Do?
Take a company day on a weekend and get all of the employees to cut loose in a barbeque picnic atmosphere. Offer up many different games throughout the day that requires folks from the office to get paired together to work as a team to win the game. A good example of this would be three legged races. This is a very literal need for working together as a unit, as failure to do so will result in falling to the ground several times.
It is your responsibility to make sure that your office “machine” is one that gets results. The best way to do this is to get everyone on the same page and willing to work with one another towards a common goal of success.
