Team building for employees has increased in popularity over the years. There are now countless specialised companies who solely focus on providing fun, creative and inspirational ways in which to unite and connect a workforce. The ultimate aim is to build a team who work harmoniously together through increased communications and who will therefore become much more productive and motivated with an increased level of morale and a better level of understanding of one another within the workplace.

During a team building exercise you may be doing something that you have never done before and although it is natural to feel nervous and self conscious, you have the benefit of your co-workers to help and support you. Some of these you may never have had the chance to talk to before but during a team building exercise you will get the chance to communicate with colleagues from all levels and backgrounds. By the end of the exercise, you will know everyone much better which will continue from the exercise and back into the office. Once you have an awareness of other colleagues' strengths, talents, fears and weaknesses, you are able to relate with them and understand them better especially as you will all be stepping out of your comfort zones to a certain degree.

It brings together different departments and colleagues who all have a mutual interest. Theymay have a very different role to you but crossing those divides with other sections will again, bring about a more productive company due to the bonds and relationships that are forged.

If you work with friendly colleagues who you feel comfortable and at ease with then you are much more likely to feel as though you can contribute and share ideas with the team. This inevitably contributes to a highly successful and dynamic workplace where creativity and motivation are at the forefront of what you do.

Having something major like a team building exercise to look forward to can break up the monotony of the stereotypical working schedule and something where employees positively anticipate a date in the working calendar and as the excitement builds, so does working towards shared goals which makes the environment more pleasant and supportive.

A successful team building activity does not have to be a full day or over several days. Great changes can be identified even in the smallest of exercises where a team's overall performance can bring about a more comfortable environment and increased success for both you and your company.
