There is no ‘i’ in a team. Maintaining a good relationship and communication among your team members is one of the things a wise team leader will know. This is why one of the activities to keep the team intact is to have team buildings. Through the set of fun and adventurous events, a group will be able to discover the strong points of an individual and how these can be used to attain success. So, here are some tips before you choose from the available team building venues out there:
Take note of the distance you’re going to travel.
Make sure if you are willing to take long distances for your team building. If the team members are going separately, some of them might arrive late if there’s a chance to get stuck on traffic. Also, the transportation expense can also be a concern so consider the travel distance first.
Confirm if you need an indoor or outdoor venue.
The activities for your team will depend whether you choose an indoor venue or an outdoor. The latter will most likely involve more physical and challenging ones so better discuss this thing among the members of the organization.
Ask if the venue has enough accommodation and facilities.
If it’s just a drive away from your area, it’s better to visit the venue first and check whether it will fit with what the team wants. But if not, you can check out their website for the information. You may also find some reviews and referrals from the previous organizations who have experienced doing a team building in the venue.
