The daily grind of work can often leave us feeling burnt out, uninspired, and disconnected from our colleagues. However, taking the time to step out of the daily routine and bring your team together can offer numerous benefits, including increased collaboration, improved communication, stronger relationships, and enhanced creativity.
Our coaches love joining company away days to help bring a team together and set them up for success. Here are Coach Cat’s top 3 benefits she sees when a team step out of the office and spends some time in a facilitated session together:
Alignment of goals
It’s always a good time to make sure a team’s goals align with the organisation's overall mission and values. By ensuring that everyone is working towards the same vision, away days can create a sense of unity and purpose within the team. This can also help teams avoid conflicts or misunderstandings that can arise when everyone has different priorities.
Away days can help energise teams and boost morale. By offering a fresh perspective and new ideas, they can reignite enthusiasm and excitement for work. They can also create a sense of accountability and responsibility within the team, which can help everyone feel more invested in the success of the team. This can lead to a more positive and supportive team culture, which can be incredibly valuable for long-term success.
By helping teams see the bigger picture and understand their role in achieving the organisation's mission, away days can inspire team members to perform at their best.
By taking the time to connect and interact in a new environment, teams can rejuvenate their spirits, strengthen their connections, and achieve greater success in the future. So if you're feeling burnt out or disconnected from your colleagues, consider taking the time to bring your team together outside of the daily routine. You might be surprised at the positive impact it can have on your team and your organisation.
Cat recently conducted a 2-day workshop for a business at the beautiful W Hotel - Sentosa in one of their suites. Everyone loved the view!
