“It’s not the team with the best players that win the game, it the players with the best team”.

This holds true not only in sports but more so in the cut-throat competition of business. Companies must race against each other for the attention of customers. And in order to meet customer expectations, organizations need the nimbleness and orchestrated moves and synergistic capabilities of a team to beat competitors.
Organizations endeavor to develop team spirit because they believe that it is only through team work- a steady and consistent collaboration among its members that the organization will be able to achieve its goals.

Establishing teamwork, however, is easier said than done. There are so many blockages that can get in the way of team spirit. Lack of trust, unity, commitment and poor communication is chief of them. Only by removing these blockages can the organization start to build a team culture.

Enhancing the group's team spirit however is more than just making the members aware of the dynamics of the teamwork. First, the employees must be able to develop enough confidence in themselves and their teammates in order to contribute significantly to the team's efforts. They also need to develop a working environment that is conducive to open communication and collaboration. This means that a norm for team interaction must be established so that conflict and inter-personal differences may not come in the way of open communication and collaboration. Lastly, the team must be able to develop a positive attitude towards change and breaking down old ways of doing so that the team's energy maybe directed towards improving work process and implementing strategies to achieve growth.

This Teambuilding workshop is aimed at building team members’ confidence in them selves and their teams, foster a more harmonious working relationship and establish a collaborative working environment conducive to enhanced performance and growth.
