Posted in Synergy Suggestions on 19.12.12 by John Meloche

With excitement brewing over the hopes of the Toronto Blue Jays in their 2013 campaign, there has been a lot of talk about “championship teams” around the Synergy offices lately. Our company, as you may know, is home to some of the most competitive individuals in our industry. So thankfully, we know what strong team-building is all about.

Creating a winning team is not something strictly regulated to sports franchises, of course. The success of your business will often be predicated on how hard-working, resilient and dedicated the members of your staff are when completing their tasks with each other. Teamwork is regularly required for a job to be done well overall.

So what can you do to ensure that you not only have good players and hard workers…but also have a great “synergy” among them? On eHow.com, a list of instructions are given on how to develop strong team chemistry in the office. Following such guidelines could mean the difference between putting a winning team on your field of play…and losing your reign as champion!

Establish Team-Building Concepts. This comes with good training. It’s important to discover not just the individual talents of the people you hire but how well they are able to work with others. You can discover this by creating tasks or even games that require a unified group effort to pull off successfully.

Create challenges in the office that are both fun and rewarding. Setting up a point system or even providing literal rewards can be a great way to see who is the hungriest and who works with who the best. You’ll notice that the best production will likely come from those who work best as a unit. Teamwork is everything. Implement that as part of the culture in your office.

Plan Off-Site Activities. It’s great to establish team-building within the confines of your place of business. But perhaps, the best way to see who your team members will gel the best is to take them outside of the office. As eHow.com points out, “when individuals relate to each other in various settings, it helps them establish positive relationships.”

Now is an excellent time to group your team members together outside of your place of work. With Christmas just around the corner, you may want to organize a lunch or dinner party if you haven’t done so already. We’re not talking about your all-out Christmas party that may include friends and family – just an opportunity for your staff members to unite with one another in an enjoyable and festive setting.

In tomorrow’s blog, we’ll continue to take a look at this list of instructions. Building a strong team takes time. But creating a strong chemistry between the members of your staff can sometime take even longer. In 2013, will you be joining the Toronto Blue Jays in putting your company constantly in the win column?
