What can be done to ensure a sustainable team building effect?

Team building should be fun! Collective laughing, tinkering, puzzling, going together on a journey and upon return patting each other on the back: all this is definitely part of a team event or a company trip. You get this at BITOU – and a lot more: we want your team building to have a lasting effect! Those who are in a good mood work more effectively.

What even is team building?

With team building, we refer to all of the measures that aim to improve interpersonal relationships within a team – with the aim to improve its productivity. Often in team building, activating, entertaining impulses are used and joint tasks are solved. Through this, the strengths of every single person become visible – and a phase of reflection can be connected to this.

What goals does team building have?

Building of trust, solving problems or making decisions, communication, the ability to adapt and plan: these four subject areas can be well worked through in the course of team building interventions. Before your team event, we will happily advise you individually about your goals and suggest suitable team building measures for you.

What is the difference between team building, team bonding and team training?

Team building can be sectioned off “above” and “below”: we differentiate between “team bonding,” “team building,” and “team training.” The differences are in the level of intensity in which challenges and problems within the team are worked on.

With so-called “team bonding,” free, unforced togetherness through a joint experience is in the foreground. With this, there are no reflection rounds or concrete tasks. The aim is to strengthen the us-feeling and togetherness. This can work very well through a soapbox race, online quiz, or geocaching tour outdoors for example.

We talk of “team training” when we are intensively working on the questions of working together. An example: a team grows into digital work and wants to find out for itself how working together and communication works. Which roles are needed in a team? How and where is information exchanged? Or is there a conflict in the team which should be resolved though a moderated exchange? Both situations demand an intense confrontation that goes beyond classic team building.

With classic team building, we alternate between entertainment, challenges and reflection. Our team events are set up in a way to allow every character to really get involved. In this way, the team members can fathom their roles in the team step by step.
