Have you heard about team building? We are sure your interest will enhance if you are the head of an organization. We recently had a heart-to-heart conversation with the world-famous Astro Strategist cum Business Astrologer™ Mr. Hirav Shah where he shared his views on the importance of team building.
In this context, Hirav Shah in his inimitable style says,
“मैं अकेला ही चला था जानिब-ए-मंज़िल मगर लोग साथ आते गए और कारवाँ बनता गया |”
Hirav Shah says that it is challenging to run a business and it is even more challenging to run it successfully. Hugely Successful companies may have different strategies, work ethics, and culture but one thing they have common is a well-oiled team. A team with excellent coordination that can tackle any challenge with high spirit. So, how do they get such a team? The answer is team building activities. When you are running a company, it becomes important that the employees are coordinated and working to their highest potential. The team building activities are important because they build trust, eliminate the conflicts, encourage new ideas, and improve communication. These activities should involve maximum employees, right down to the bottom line. If you make the activities enjoyable, the outcome will be impressive. So, how it is the most important investment?
A Morale build-up
It is always cheering when you have friends in the workplace. Socializing with fellow team members not only builds a good relationship but also boosts the employee’s morale. With this improved confidence, s/he performs better which eventually helps the company.
Improved team performance
The benefits of the team building activities work as a chain reaction, one thing leading to another. With boosted morale and great rapport, there is excellent communication among the employees who can perform better as a team. It is also found the corporate team building activities help the employees to understand each other, which is vital in the company’s future.
Spiced up competition
Now there is excellent communication among the employees, so we expect them to perform better as a team. Similarly, other teams will thrive for better results too, which will lead to healthy competition in the company. This competition will bring out the best in everyone and help the company to grow further. If there are incentives set for the better-performing team, then we can expect great performance from the teams.
Improvement in individual’s performance
The one thing that is connected to the morale boost is the improvement in an individual’s performance. Everyone has a certain limit of performance and sometimes due to lack of effort; they do not seem to overcome their limitations. The team building activities bring the best in you for the company. It inspires the employees to perform better and reach the next level.
Encourage innovation and creativity
After a certain time, the employees get bored with their routine work, and we see a regression in their performance. This is where successful companies differ from other companies. They regularly arrange corporate team building activities like ‘brainstorming sessions’, where you can put your ideas in front of everyone. These sessions bring creative ideas and innovative work methods, which could prove a milestone in the company’s success.
Hirav Shah who is a pro in Business astrology which combines business principles with astrology and the science of movement of planets, especially Mercury, Moon, and Jupiter guides us on how to strategize each step in business concludes by saying that though every company achieves its goals in different ways, the strategies are the same to some extent. Creating a strong team is one of these strategies and keeping the team well-knit through many tactics is essential for assured success.
