Why Is Team Building Important?

When done well, a team building experience will create new relationships and improved understanding between employees, resulting in better performance back in the work place. For example, the Managing Partner of one of the world's leading management consultancies came to us at SongDivision with a problem. The partners who ran the various industry units were too busy to talk with each other, resulting in lost business opportunities and hence lost revenue. The partner for the Banking & Finance division wasn't talking with her Travel & Transport counterpart, Pharma wasn't talking to FMCG and so on. So, we took the twenty partners into a famous recording studio, where they wrote and recorded a song about their communication challenges and how they were going to fix them. Read on to find out how SongDivision Australia can improve your bottom line...

The Science of Team Bonding with Music

Music played a key role in our evolutionary past, without it, we may not have evolved into the human society we are today. Music is all about bonding. Oxytocin is the ‘cuddle chemical’, the bonding hormone that’s released when we interact with our loved ones. So what produces more of this highly effective bonding chemical? Either interacting with friends or….singing together. A German study in 2014 showed that singing together releases twice the normal amounts of oxytocin into our system. It’s just one of a series of studies since 2010 that have shown a powerful physiological effect of music on social bonding. Read more about the effect that music has on the brain and how SongDivision Australia can help you tap into the power of this ultimate social bonding tool!

The Best Corporate Team Building Ideas? The Fun Ones!

Team activities, events and games. Like public speaking, the mere mention of them at work will strike fear into most people.

So what are the best exercises for your workplace? The answer is very straight forward - the ones that your people enjoy! If your colleagues and co-workers have a tortured look on their face or are on their phones rather than paying attention, then they're not engaged and there is zero chance that they will benefit from the experience. Team productivity exercises, when they work, can be designed to sharpen communication, foster collaboration and introduce fun back into a stressful workplace. They can bring out the creativity necessary for innovation in your team, provide the spark for strong relationships, ease tension after a merger or acquisition and clarify a company's strategic vision and goals.

But your team will reap none of these rewards if the team bonding ideas you choose aren't fun. They need to be truly fun, and not in a condescending, childish way. Corporate activities for adults need to be challenging, sophisticated, unpredictable and uplifting. They need to take everyone out of their day-to-day existence of emails, deadlines and office politics. People need to be so immersed in the experience that they forget about their usual biases and behaviours.

This process can be referred to as 'being taken out of your comfort zone', but we're not a fan of that concept at SongDivision. Nobody likes being uncomfortable. What we like to do, is to turn your people into rock stars for a day. There aren't many things on the planet that are more fun than that, no matter what your age, gender, rank or nationality.

Admittedly, we will see some distressed faces at the very start of a session if your folks have been warned that they're heading into a 'team bonding activity'. However these looks and nervous twitches quickly disappear when they see and hear the SongDivision musicians, the best in the world, and any cynicism quickly transforms into excitement as your group jumps into their mission.

When you first Googled 'team building ideas', you would have been flooded with choices - free, quick, indoor, outdoor, scavenger hunts, amazing races, cooking, climbing, cocktailing, filming.

We've delivered programs in over 30 countries to every type of company in pretty much every industry, and they love it. They've had fun. And by having fun, people receive all the other benefits built into SongDivion's activities that produce tangible results back in the workplace. Everyone loves music. Team building doesn't have to suck.
