Outdoor Teambuilding Vacations

By: Jonathon Hardcastle

Outdoor teambuilding vacations are a great way to get to know your colleagues or team-mates. Working well as part of a team is an essential ingredient in the success of any group, and utilizing individual skills in a constructive way is imperative for efficiency in commerce and other spheres.

With teambuilding vacations you can go some way towards promoting these vital personal skills to form tighter units, and improve responsiveness to crisis situations. In this article we'll look at the benefits of teambuilding activities, and the types of things you can expect to do whilst on your team building vacation.

Teambuilding activity vacations are usually very basic in terms of accommodation, and don't expect gourmet food for each meal. These factors aside, the beauty and real value of teambuilding centres lies in their activity facilities, staff and experience of building lasting relationships between teams that can be implemented in the real world.

On a teambuilding vacation, it is normal to expect a range of problems and tasks which you have to solve by working as part of your team. Teambuilding of this sort is fun, but it really is much more useful than that. Whilst the trivial situation you are trying to overcome may bear no relation to your daily employment or interest you in the slightest, it is reinforcing natural skills humans possess - i.e. the ability to function as a team for the common good.

By naturally resolving problems in common with other people, you develop the necessary team building skills to be able to work more effectively in team situations. This is then naturally transposed to environment where you need these skills for success, such as the workplace or studio. Additionally, these vacations are also very useful in boosting morale and cementing friendships, which can have untold organisational benefits.

Teambuilding events have their critics and their doubters, but largely employers are becoming more and more aware of the benefits for personal development and to their organisation of building these skills through team building vacations. Furthermore, it's good fun, and is a welcome break away from the monotony of daily life.

If you're an employer, or you're in charge of a team, why not consider investing in a teambuilding vacation for your group? The vacation will turn out to be a real investment, paid off in the motivation and renewed dedication of your staff to teambuilding.
