5 Things That are Killing Innovation in Your Company   Sometimes there are factors at play within your workplace that hinder creativity and act as innovation killers without you even realising it. Knowing what hinders creativity is just as important as knowing what promotes and fosters it.   1. Too Much or Too Little Team Work Creativity can prosper in two different work situations: on an individual level and in a team setting. Each of these situations provide different opportunities and frames of mind for catalysing that spark of genius. Individualistic thinking can enable ideas to flow at a highly focused and deep level. By comparison, the energetic and dynamic atmosphere of team problem solving generates ideas at a rapid rate. Though different, each is equally viable and important for progress and innovation. If you want more creativity, you’ll have to create a physical environment that can readily echo and support each of these types of situations. The environment for teamwork is fundamentally different by principle than the environment for individual work. Create balance by offering opportunities for employee collaboration while also providing quiet places for thinking and focusing. Working individually enables one to deeply attune to the problem. Giving something your full attention can be crucial for creativity. When paying attention to something, you fully immerse yourself in it, something that is not so easy to do in a team setting. If you can afford to do and support both, create corresponding calm and energetic atmospheres. A cozy zone that is peaceful and perfect for reflecting and researching will be perfect for fostering creativity within an individual. An open space that can seat lots of people will be more suitable for employee collaboration. If you have limited space, try thinking up of a way to transition from context to context by quickly rearranging furniture when the occasion calls for it or by scheduling particular slots in a day where teams can collaborate.   2.You’ve Become Detached A great leader is present and involved within his company. However, lately you’ve been working extra long hours and going to too many meetings. Ask yourself, have you lost sight of your team and workplace culture? As you get busier, it’s easier to lose awareness of what’s affecting what. So, you may be unable to identify innovation killers simply because you are so out of tune with your company culture. If this is the case, you can quickly re-establish familiarity with the state of affairs by asking yourself these few questions: •How does the team handle failure? Are they aversive? •What happened the last time there was failure? Was someone chewed out?...

Why Every Business Should Invest in Team Building Not enough businesses implement team building strategies and the effects can be clearly seen. You have employees working in the same team who barely acknowledge each other, there are awkward silences in the canteen and the office has an eerie atmosphere with many employees not actually wanting to be there. Team building activities help combat all the above and more. They transform your workforce and office into something much more inspirational. Never invested in team building before? Well here’s a few reasons why you should seriously reconsider.   1. Get to know everyone Team building is based around doing fun activities as a team. It will give your employees a chance to show another side of their personality and create new friendships. You may have a sales department that constantly liaises with the customer service team via email but have never actually met. Wait, let me get this straight – They are working in the same office and communicate via email daily but have never actually said “Hi” or been introduced? How crazy is that? This is a fundamental problem a lot of businesses have with their employees and the atmosphere around the office. People walk around with their heads down not talking to others, over time this builds a negative atmosphere that will ultimately impact the quality of work. A simple team building day out can change all that.   2. It’s fun and motivates your team Getting your employees away from the desk or factory to do something totally different that is not monotonous will motivate and lift spirits. While team building isn’t something you do every week or month, setting aside 1 or 2 days per year will give your team something to look forward to and rejuvenate morale.   3. Bringing the hierarchy down to ground level In a lot of corporate setting environments, the gap between employee and manager is quite distant. Our team building exercises in Australia are created to break down the barriers between leaders and employees to view one another as colleagues rather than boss or employee. This helps an employee’s morale and brings boss and team a lot closer together.   4. Team building saves money Yes, it really does! Businesses tend to view team building as an expense rather than an investment. Team building has been proven to motivate, inspire and re-energies employees, you should view it as a long-term investment rather than an expense that can be avoided.   Team building is the equivalent of sending an employee to get certified for a particular position or providing them with extra training for their...
