Skill Building: Team Building

Team Building

Team building is about activities to make social bonds or relations within a group stronger. It is very important if you work with a group of people towards a common goal, because it identifies personalities, roles and expectations within the group.
Before planning your activity, spend some time to think about the structure of your team. What are your team’s strengths? What are its weaknesses? These questions below can help you reflect:

  • Is everyone getting along, or are there some tensions/conflicts in the group?

  • Do all members of the team know each other?

  • Are all team members working towards the same goal?

  • Is there good communication in the team?

  • Are people in your team working individually or collectively?

  • Are all members of the team motivated?
