How You Can Enhance Leadership with Team Bonding Exercises

teambondingCreating an engaging leadership culture at your company is essential to enhancing employee engagement and building a high performance workplace.

A recent article on this subject in ProfitGuide, “The Surprisingly Effective Way to Engage Your Staff”, is worth a read. It discusses how one company, The Bargains Group, turned a charitable initiative into a team bonding exercise, ultimately creating something unexpected – increased employee engagement.

The company helped the GTA’s homeless and less fortunate by creating Project Winter Survival and Project Water. Employees implemented these projects by assembling care kits to give to those in need.

Another example of this in action is Canalta Hotels, which packages used soap from their hotels and distributes it to people in need in Ecuador. They create hygiene packs that help protect people from harmful diseases. In doing so, they build goodwill, team bonding, and an engaging leadership culture.

According to the President and Chief Bargains Officer of The Bargains Group, Jody Steinhauer, companies and HR departments “need to engage their employees—they want to engage their employees—but the question of how to do it is the problem. They don’t want to do the same old ropes course or scavenger hunt”.

I see value in providing employees a social cause they can work together on to do great things for those in need. This type of initiative can be a powerful tool for companies wanting to take an engaging leadership culture a step further.

The good feeling that comes with helping others will have a lasting impact on the employees and will permeate how they view helping their customers. The correlation between customer loyalty and employee engagement is critical. The real win here is the effect on your customer loyalty, which will improve after these types of events.
