Team Building Ideas for Advisory Teams
An article in Harvard Business Review on “The Secrets of Great Teams,” highlights the importance of teams socializing together. The study suggested that even the simple act of having employees take their coffee break together increased productivity by 8% and up to 20% in some cases!
Is team building worth it?
The short answer: absolutely! The long answer: an effective team is a productive team. A team that works well together will increase client satisfaction, maintain quality control, and build and grow your business.
The old saying is true: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
How can you do team building activities with a small advisory team?
There are many options including:
- spa days
- laser tag
- paint ball
- cooking classes
- paintable ceramics
- ski days
- rock climbing
- ropes courses
- escape room mazes
- zip line, etc.
Keep your team’s interests and abilities in mind.
Do the activities during work hours so employees with young families can still attend, plan the events together, include spouses if your team is very small, and take pictures to share with your clients. Most importantly, remain consistent and plan events year round. The most successful teams do an event quarterly or semi-annually.
