There’s a purpose with teambuilding – the idea is to have retreats or problem-solving camps that will build skills and camaraderie among colleagues. If you achieve your purpose, then the camaraderie built up between colleagues is designed to improve productivity. The British Army has faced ever conceivable challenge and we can learn from them how to overcome challenges in the office.
Protect and Support important Teambuilding Skills
Both the scout team and the fire team in the British army know how to use teamwork, leadership, tenacity and good planning to get the job done. These teams know how to protect and support their team members and skills like these can be implemented in the office as you strive to get along well- and support your fellow workers, particularly those who are new and battling.
Working together to Keep out Harmful aspects
When a scout team engages in their activities, they work together as a team in an unknown area to gain information about it and work together and gather information ahead of the main force. They move forward while using their leadership skills to achieve their motives. The strategies and methods they use can also be extended into the office as you all work to keep out negative and harmful aspects.
Important Strategies gleaned from the Army
There is no denying that we can take inspiration from the way the British army ‘irons out’ their challenges. Teambuilding ideas from the army can even help an office plan for an emergency because you ‘ve all learned how to work through processes in such a way that it has a positive impact on productivity and a healthy, happy environment.
