Team Building activities in Kenya

There are several team-building activities in Kenya. We do provide you with access to these activities throughout the year.

In addition, we also facilitate transport and other requirements to the team building venues…

Individual productivity is one of the most overlooked attributes in this century.

The pressure to slip into roles quickly is driving people into undesirable mental states.

A mentally frustrated individual is hazardous to an organization and society at large.

This is why you need frequent team-building excursions to revitalize the spirits of your employees and relevant partners.

Team building is a high-level impact learning designed to equip your team with competitive work strategies.

These strategies improve work productivity and the general well-being of your employees or teammates.

Team building in Kenya is essential as it strives to align individual goals with corporate goals.

Moreover, it brings together a group of individuals working for a similar cause and provides fun-filled moments and valuable lessons to improve productivity at a personal and a team level.

Team building activities in Kenya – Approaches

Several team-building techniques can benefit an organization.

Once you comprehend every option available, you will be better positioned to select the method that best suits your team.

 Skill-based approach

This technique provides a combination of fun and skill development in the respective roles.

Through mind-boggling challenges, the team develops leadership skills, creative thinking, problem-solving skills, and negotiation skills.

Value-based approach

This technique adopts the concept of corporate social responsibility. Activities are centered around giving back to the community.

You can use this technique to mobilize your team to engage in social activities that improve people’s lives.

Some of the activities that you can opt for are charity drives, walks, cycling, and visiting orphanage institutions.

In this strategy, team members develop a sense of humanity, responsibility, and improved job satisfaction.

Activity-based approach

In this approach, a team engages in physical and mental activities to break the monotonous workplace routines.

You can have the team building indoors or outdoors.

Daytrips and excursions can provide a precious opportunity for your team to relax, break the communication ice and explore hidden talents.

Conflict resolution-based approach

Differing work opinions and approaches tend to obscure development goals.

In a team-building session, fun activities to promote bonding and effective communication help solve problems within the team.

This technique exposes members’ strong and weak points and harmonizes individual strengths to achieve the main work goals.

Communication-based approach

Communication is undoubtedly the core of every business and it involves verbal, non-verbal, and written communication.

Well, communication affects how we relate to our work colleagues and potential clients.

Team building activities help in nurturing strong communication and interpersonal skills.

It is a successful approach as it fosters unity and trust at the workplace.

Personality-based approach

We all want someone to understand us, be it at home, workplace, or social place. We have varied personalities that drive us to think and do things differently.

If we understand and appreciate diversity, it becomes easy to match individuals with specific roles.

A team-building exercise that involves personality tests helps you to understand your team on a personal level.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a valuable personality test tool that many team building facilitators adopt in team-building exercises.

When to engage in a team building exercise

While you are not limited to specific times, you must organize a team-building exercise as frequently as your budget can allow.

Some of the pointers that you should schedule a team-building excursion include the admission of new workers, dissolution of redundant departments, intense work conflicts among work teams, inconsistent team communication, and geographical expansion plans.

Common team building activities

Road trips, hiking, swimming, canopy walk, nature trail, networking, wildlife viewing, cycling, rafting, kayaking, canoeing, horse riding, picnicking, bird viewing, professional photography, singing games, corporate lessons, and motivational talks.

Competency and skill development

At the team building venues, we procure professional facilitators who have immense experience in corporate management.

They provide you with lessons on customer service, financial management, change management, leadership, and personal development.

Additionally, they relay motivational talks through a guided process.

Objective exercises enhance the following skills: delegation, sharp listening skills, analytical skills, effective communication, multitasking, time management, problem resolution, creativity, innovation, and decision-making skills.

The exercises help you in improving workplace morale by encouraging the team to embrace change positively.

What does team building do for you?

The process of team building is holistic and applies to individuals and teams.

It is important to note that a strong team starts with a passionate and happy individual.

The process triggers self-comprehension, increases confidence levels, and reduces stress levels.

It is a form of workout, hence improves flexibility and also stimulates and enhances the spirit of leadership in a competitive work environment.

Fun-filled activities help you loosen up, have a positive outlook on life, and enjoy the simple things life has to offer.

Group activities improve bonding among employees through communication, physical exercises, and strategy formulation.

Team building activities illuminate your strengths, weaknesses, and interests hence equipping you with the virtues of resilience, laser focus, and strategic execution.
