"OK, let's go around the room and everyone tell one interesting fact about yourself." "Bill, just fall backwards off this platform and let your team catch you!" "So how do we become a better team?" Any of you who have attended team offsites may recognize some variation of the above phrases. With the primary purpose of building teamwork, offsites became very popular in the 90's and are a mainstay in many organizational environments. I've seen very mixed success in the offsites I have both attended as a team member and facilitated as a leader. Some of the offsites were great at inspiring the team and driving positive change in the organization, while others had as much impact as trying to bring down an alligator with a pea-shooter. In looking at my successes and failures in managing offsites, I've come to realize that team offsites held for the sole purpose of building teamwork in an organization just don't work well. Sure, there may be some great feel-good things that happen at the offsite and a couple of friendships may develop. That is all fine and good. What really makes a team offsite hum, though, is when team building is coupled with organizational direction setting or problem solving. Not only are the team-building benefits realized, but the team is putting the team-building to work in real-time by addressing real, meaty business issues. After the offsite is done and the team goes back to the office, the team-building can be reinforced through the implementation of the ideas unearthed at the offsite. When this is done well, team-building shifts from being a separate and distinct activity to something that is woven into the fabric of what the team does on a day to day basis. In this Leading on the EdgeT Action Guide I will focus on five fundamental requirements leaders should follow which will result in effective team offsites. These requirements are based on years of conducting successful offsites as well as quite a few that were major duds. I learned some major lessons through both the successes and failures which helped me run more effective team offsites. I hope these lessons learned will be helpful to you as well. Leading on the Edge TAction Guide Focus Topics Topic #1 - Have a clearly stated business purpose for the offsite Topic #2 - Don't forget recess time Topic #3 - Provide plenty of time for unstructured networking Topic #4 - Don't make the team work overtime to make up the time spent at the offsite Topic #5 - Put together a follow-up plan to continue work from the offsite
