Motivating your team members can make a noticeable difference to their performance and the atmosphere at work. Here are five tips to give your team a boost, so they know you care.

1.       Say thank you more often and mean it.

If you thank every team member at least once a day and explain why they have done a good job rather than just saying a token ‘thanks’ this will make their day a whole lot better, empower them and you’ll see productivity increase….

Why trusting your team drives results

For the ultimate exercise in developing trust, take your team out on the blindfolded 4×4 challenge for an experience that will never be forgotten.

Trust is something that is usually earned rather than gifted and without trust within the workings of a business, communication can become flawed, direction can be lost and ultimately the company can suffer as a result.

The Team Machine in action!

The Team Machine is an fun team building event that requires participants to co-operate with other teams to achieve a common goal.

Each team is given a set of building materials to create a moving sculpture. The plans are muddled requiring sharing of data before building can commence. Components must be assembled in just the right way for the individual mechanisms to work. Later the teams must work together to find the correct sequence of mechanisms, so that, once launched each element will trigger the next in a chain reaction building to an explosive finale!

Have a look at The Team Machine in action at a recent Fresh Tracks team building event.

However, on reflection, we went through the following team development process…

Team Building can Appeal to Everyone

Finding a team building event for a large department can be a challenge.  The Activists want to run about while the Reflectors would rather observe.  Pragmatists will ask ‘What’s the point of this?’ While Theorists might prefer to study and solve a complex puzzle.

We reckon we’ve developed a format that can please all of the people all of the time.  We combine a variety of competitive team challenges to meet each participant’s preferred style, demonstrating that our differences can be the source of our success in a team….

The requirement to generate profits on large, low margin contracts is a distinct challenge to the construction industry.  …

The top five lessons team leaders can learn from bees

When it comes to working as a team, studies show that bees really are the best.  Here are our top five lessons we can apply to our own working lives.

Top 5 from the hive

1. Honest communication and sharing information is at the heart of the team.
Bees use vibrations and pheromones to help pass complex messages.  We have so much technology to help us communicate; let’s not forget that using it with honesty is they key to excellent communication.  …

When children’s charity Rainbow Trust wanted to engage with Lombard Financial Services, our Toy Factory Exercise was the perfect fit.

Our Toy Factory Exercise was a success for all involved

The day began with Lynn (a family support worker) from Rainbow Trust sharing her experience of working with a family going through the crisis of child bereavement, and how she uses play therapy to engage with and support siblings….
