Volleyball Tournaments for Corporate Team Building
Nothing brings a corporate team together like a bit of sweat, sports, and friendly competition. At City Beach, we offer our courts for corporate team building events all the time. Many companies, we have found, love holding a volleyball tournament to boost team morale and take some of the pressure off. A corporate volleyball tournament can help your team in more ways than you can imagine.
Builds Team Chemistry
Wait – but they are competing against each other right? Well, yes, your employees and management teams will be divided into teams and will compete to win the tournament, but this does not diminish the fact that they will get to work together on their individual teams. People will have to learn how to play with each other and learn to build off of one another’s strengths. When teams are not playing, they also get to come together to root for their friends or root against the rivals. This also forms bonds.
When the secretary secretly played volleyball in junior college and ends up winning the volleyball tournament MVP, your employees and management may never see them the same way again. You will see your team from completely new angles when you play a sport together. Bosses become more human in their failure to platform properly or set the ball. Employees who seem to go under the radar become star players. These altered roles give you a better sense of the people you work with that leads to deeper and more positive relationships.
These altered roles and the camaraderie of relying on each other for support during a game builds trust. This is fundamental to having a well-run business. During the day-to-day grind, your employees need to learn to trust their teammates, and management needs to learn to trust their employees. Nothing destroys a work environment like mistrust and micromanagement. A volleyball tournament uses competition and teamwork to form trust among various members of teams across the company.
Learning new skills or showing off old skills leads to increased confidence. You won’t need to come away from the volleyball tournament with a gold medal to take positives from the experience. Sometimes work feels like an endless slog of one issue after another. In sports, you can and will accomplish concrete tasks and overcome identifiable difficulties. This allows you and your team to come away feeling the confidence to take on the world in the way completing one week’s list of tasks only to have them renewed again the next rarely does.
