?5 Powerful Team Building Activities For Building Trust in Virtual Teams ?

* Fun team building activities are vital to the success of your organization.
* In fact, the personal bonds that form as a result can actually give your organization a competitive edge.
* A recent study conducted by Gallup reports that employee satisfaction was boosted by 50% on account of developed close work friendships. The study also disclosed that people with a self-described best friend at work are seven times more likely to be fully engaged at work.
* The closer you are to your co-workers, the happier you’ll be at work, and the more likely you’ll be to sacrifice your time to help them succeed.
* Why I don’t Like Trust Falls
* In theory, this is a powerful activity for team-building. It challenges our fears of pain, abandonment, anxiety, loss of control, and trust issues.
* To perform a trust fall, a person stands on an elevated position like a stool or a stage, crosses their arms over their chest, stiffens their body and deliberately falls directly back into the (hopefully present) arms of their peers to catch them.

Patrick Lencioni wrote in his book, “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team,” that the absence of trust is a foundational issue teams must overcome. Teams with low trust are unwilling to be vulnerable with each other.

For example: “I’m sorry,” or “I need help”

When teams lack trust, morale is low, communication is poor and there’s a high turnover rate as a result of members quitting the team.

One way to solve this dysfunction is to foster an environment that is built on trust. Trust is similar to respect due to its nature of reciprocity. In order to receive trust, you must give it. There are easier, less dangerous and equally effective trust-building activities that you can do with your team to replace a trust fall and I’m going to share them with you now.
