HOW WELL DO THE MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM REALLY KNOW EACH OTHER?

Too many employees interact with their coworkers based on the people they THINK THEY ARE – Not the people they TRULY are.

They think their colleague comes into work tired on Thursdays because they were out partying the night before.

If they asked why, they might find out that every Wednesday night their co-worker has to drive 2 hours out of town to visit their dying mother in the hospital. If they knew this, they would move from seeing this person as selfish to selfless.

Your team members work next to each other every day, but do the REALLY know each other?

  • Employees who feel the need to hide parts of themselves at work struggle to build close bonds with their colleagues and nearly 40% of people report that they feel lonely.
  • Lonely people have a 50% increased risk of early death, compared to those with good social connections. Some studies even say the health risks are as serious as smoking a pack of cigarettes every day.
  • Lonelier workers report lower job satisfaction, fewer promotions, more frequent job switching, and a higher likelihood of quitting their current job in the next six months. 50% of employees that have to "hide" who they really are would jump ship and find a new company in a heartbeat.
  • Only 28% of employees are engaged at work. Staff disengagement cost $11 billion from turnover alone. If we include the costs from low productivity, then $11 billion looks like pocket change.

Google’s quest to build the perfect team uncovered that the #1 indicator of a high-performing, innovative team is the psychological safety and trust that develop largely through SOCIAL CONNECTIONS.

A strong and cohesive team can achieve anything if their voices are heard

BENEFITS OF AN AUTHENTIC WORKPLACE

Attract high performers instead of losing your best employees to the competition

Effective team-building turns employees into purpose-driven evangelists for their company and their coworkers.

Use your strong corporate culture as a bargaining chip to recruit the best and brightest talent. When applying for jobs, millennial employees are not only assessing their salary and benefits, but also whether or not they relate to the working environment, and enjoy rolling up their sleeves next to their peers.

Increase wellbeing and make your employees feel like they belong

Create a lasting feeling of team connection and togetherness to enhance day-to-day workplace harmony. Allow each team member to see each other as a fellow human being, instead of hierarchical positions or organizational labels, creating genuine connection and affinity.

Increase trust between team members

Your employees should feel safe to take risks around their team members. This workshop will help you create a community culture where employees will feel confident that no one on the team will embarrass or punish anyone else for admitting a mistake, asking a question, or offering a new idea.

Better communication in your team

In the workshop your team will learn how to turn small talk into a meaningful conversation that builds trust and connection. Through various activities they will be able to improve their listening skills as well.

Increase profits by building better teams

Soft skills matter. Empathy and emotional intelligence are the most important qualities in high performing teams.

We connect people to people
instead of title to title

NO CHEESY TRUST FALLS

HOW WE CAN HELP

We’ll invite you to participate in fun, experiential group exercises that your team won’t groan at by creating a save space where your employees feel safe to take small risks and connect in a meaningful way.

This is not about finding your best friend or soul mate at work (although that could happen), but using your ability to connect with real human beings during real life human encounters on a daily basis, while still maintaining your professionalism.

Many growing companies have the unique challenges of having to produce high quality results in a short time. This requires maintaining a strong team cohesion. That’s not an easy task when working under deadline, uncertainty, and sometimes power or personality conflicts.

Bringing in an outside consultant or facilitator takes the pressure off your leadership team. When your employees feel valued and connected at work, they are more motivated, provide each other with emotional support to get unstuck and make better decisions since team members feel safe to share information.

We work with teams of 5 – 100 people and are happy to create a custom package that fits the needs of your company. If there is a specific challenge or theme that you want to focus on, then get in touch for a custom quote.
