4 Team building tips that deliver stronger teams!
1. Encourage professional-development: support team members that seek additional education, certifications, and credentials. Share their success and if possible share some of their expense as well.
2. Check-in regularly: Set a consistent check-in cadence and stick to it. These are the most important meetings on your work calendar so avoid rescheduling or cutting them short. During these check-ins leave time for team members to give feedback and listen to it!
3. Team calendar: Share a single calendar for the entire team with all the team meetings and events as well as vacation times. Encourage team members to post a few “free” hours each week for other team members to snag for collaboration.
4. Intra team events: If you have team building activities try and compete against other teams as a way of bonding. Having a 15-minute virtual trivia competition against another team to start longer meetings can be a fun way to encourage team spirit.
