As a manager, it’s not only your job to find ways to have fun yourself at work, but also to get your team to have fun. A team that has fun together is a team that gets along, is more willing to collaborate, is more willing to put in the extra effort, and is more interested in finding innovative solutions to problems.
Here are a few things you can do to create a more fun workplace at your Scottsdale business:
Attend Team Building Exercises
Scottsdale team building courses can help your team get to know each other better, to find common ground, and — yes — to have fun together. As a manager, you can schedule these Scottsdale corporate team building courses in your role as a team builder. As an employee, you can air your concerns to your manager and suggest that the company invest in these courses.
Team building courses include a number of exercises that help employees learn how to work together more effectively while also having fun. For example, employees might have to complete an obstacle course or another challenge, like a ropes course.
Go to Employee Events
Company-sponsored events are a great way for employees to have fun together. These can be scheduled during the work day, such as small parties for someone who is having a birthday or monthly meetings that also include games and recognitions. The goodwill that is built up during these events can be transferred over to the working day.
Get to Know Your Co-Workers
You can’t really have fun with people you don’t know that well. Sure, you may know that Jerry works in accounting, but that’s much to inspire conversation or camaraderie. However, if you find out that Jerry loves to work on hot rods on the weekends or that he’s got a sweet collection of Japanese samurai swords, you’ll probably have a lot more to talk about. While you won’t be gabbing all day long about these things at work, the knowledge can make it easier for you to talk together and have fun together while working.
A Direct Effect Team Building offers the Scottsdale team building workshops that you need to learn how to start having fun with your team again. If you are a team builder, consider scheduling these for your team. A variety of team building exercises can be conducted in your office or off-site to meet your goals.
