TEAM BUILDING EVENTS

Everyone knows that teams must work together to be able to achieve their tasks.  However, teams don't always have the right mix of complementary skills they need to have.  Since team members must hold themselves accountable for the outcome, when plans are not working, we should try to see things from another perspective. 

Most people appreciate that Team Building activities can help create bonding and improve cohesion.  However, few people fully realize the high level of learning and growth that's made possible through teamwork training.  One of the team building exercises we facilitate at Julius Magic is called:
                                                                       
                                                                    The Helium Stick:

In these team building videos, we asked the participants to hold a wooden stick on top of their index fingers and lower it to the ground as a team.

Every team member has to keep both index fingers in constant contact with the stick at all times. 

If even a single team member loses contact with the stick for a moment, the team has to start over at chest height again.

    
The stick can only rest on the side of the index fingers. So team members can’t wrap a finger over the top of the stick or slide fingernails over the stick, etc.  (They can’t cradle the stick or force the stick down.)

Every team member must be standing and the starting point is chest height of the tallest person. (You have to give this rule or everyone will drop to their knees and try to cheat right away.)

The goal is to lower the stick to about six inches off the ground.

                                                                          The Activity:

Once the teams begin to touch the stick, the challenge will present itself pretty quickly. The stick is so light that the up-force from each of the fingers trying to stay in contact is greater than the weight of the stick.  The result? Immediately, the stick will begin to rise.

Some team members will try to coach the others by giving verbal instructions like, “No, let’s go down!”  When that doesn’t work, they will get more vocal (because the problem is that everyone just isn’t listening to them, right?), and they will shout,  “Down!  Down!  Down!”  

After they struggle for a while, the teams start to figure out how to work together to get the goal accomplished.

This is a fantastic and revealing team building game that will let you draw lots of conclusions about verbal vs. non-verbal communication, the difference between loud, vocal “leaders” and those who lead by example, and more.

We will help you develop your leaders and equip them with the skills to make an environment where employees can work together most effectively.  Employees always must motivate themselves and become engaged, but it is up to leadership to make employees feel that the leaders value everyone as individuals.  Leaders must ensure that everyone feels included through open communication.

We coach team leaders, mentor them, and develop them.  We strive to call out the uniqueness of your people and differentiate them through their strengths.  Leaders dread "training" and will try to avoid it, whereas they will embrace and look forward to development.

When a team member is engaged, they bring their whole heart, spirit, mind, and body to their work.
Engagement goes beyond satisfaction.  Salary, commissions, bonuses, benefits, and company perks may help with recruiting and retention, but these things alone don't motivate salespeople to give their very best efforts.  Open and constant communication is the beginning of any great relationship.   It's also one of the keys to improving teamwork and enhancing team morale. ​
 
What you do as a team when plans go awry or results and numbers are down has everything to do with communication.   Everyone has a different style of communication and preferences for how they work.  We can get to know these through open communication and dialogue.
