Innovator Newsletter study showed innovation/creativity, teamwork, customer service, problem solving, adaptive skills, shared leadership, and communication were in the top 10 competencies necessary for success.


I am often asked to facilitate team building events.  Occasionally the person coordinating the event from the client corporation is tasked with setting up a fun day, but most often the team’s manager is hoping to solve a problem within the team.  It is important to know what you want from a team-building event before contacting a potential facilitator or facility.  When I am contacted about team building, I listen to what the coordinator says is needed, which typically emphasizes the word “FUN”.  My response is “I have lots of activities that are fun, so we can definitely do that.  What is it you want your team(s) to learn at this event?” 


3 Questions for Team Building Event Coordinator:.

1. Does the team have an issue that is keeping them from moving forward with their work? 

2. Does the team have a defined mission and goals or objectives? 

3. Does the team need to experience designing processes, planning quality improvement efforts, serving customer well , solving problems, risk-taking, or making decisions on their own?
