Corporate Entertainment And Team Building: Doing It The Professional Way
- By: Vikram Kumar
Whether you are after a corporate entertainment event to wow potential customers, or one to reinvigorate your staff in a team building activity, if you haven't been involved in this sort of area before, you may be surprised at how much is involved. Do you really have the time to set aside on organising an event when your job description doesn't cover this kind of thing? Wouldn't you be better off spending your valuable time doing what you know best and are comfortable with, and passing the unfamiliar tasks on to someone who will be doing what they know best?
Many people think that they can handle the administrative and practical responsibilities of organizing entertainment events for corporates– after all, we've all had successful parties at one time or another, haven't we? How difficult can it be? Well, the truth is, it's not so much the difficulty of the tasks (or list of tasks) as the time involved. You probably cannot afford to drop the day-to-day tasks that you cover without thinking about them in favour of a day or several days organising an outside event – and, unless your job description, experience and expertise have been specifically employed by your company to cover such tasks as team building and corporate entertainment, you will probably find that even your best efforts go less than properly appreciated.
We all like to think ourselves capable, if not shining examples, of team builders. It is how the human race operates, pretty much all the time, after all. But sometimes a team needs to get out from under the management and work towards goals that it sets itself. It's great if you can project yourself as a working part of the team, and are able to be hands-on as well as management. The truth is, though, that most teams feel management to be an outside influence. In the best cases, they are a positive one. In the worst, however, no matter how hard you try, your management status can be an obstacle in the way of getting the most from your team. Often, it's a relief on both sides for management to hand over to someone else, let the members of the team find their feet and do the team building themselves.
Why not call a company like Accolade and let them give you, and your team, a break? They will organise a productive, effective, team building day, weekend or week and you'll be able to get on with day-to-day activity. Take a look at the Accolade website to get an idea of what's on offer, and take your pick. It will save you time, money and anxiety. And your team will run more effectively without you having to either pick up a stick, or dangle a carrot.
