“Team Building activities are used by companies and organizations to help teams bond and learn to work together, combining the strengths and intelligence of a diverse group of individuals to complete fun, but challenging tasks successfully.
Generally, the prevailing environment during team building activities is positive and participants take part with abandon and without fear. The consequences of mistakes or even failure are small, confined mostly to a bit of banter in the office afterwards.

Corporate team building is a process designed to develop effective teams and teamwork. There are many definitions of the word team but perhaps the simplest is “a group of individuals working together towards achieving a common goal”. It is well known that potentially teams will always achieve more than an individual.
Corporate team building uses various games, activities or exercises to develop certain characteristics within the individuals that are important if the team is to become an effective one. These characteristics are as follows:
• Be able to communicate openly and honestly
• Focus on the problem or goal and not on an individual
• Be able to trust yourself and your fellow team members in the contributions brought to the team
• To seek understanding of the objective of the team and your role in achieving the objective
• Learn to take risks and to support team members when they take risks
• Understand the interdependence within the team and the importance of each team member
