Team Building

Team building days can be a lot of fun, but there are serious business benefits behind them. Corporate team-building activities are great for team bonding and will also give your team members a chance to work on their problem-solving skills.

When they’re doing fun team-building activities, the entire team will be more relaxed about trying out new things than they normally are in the workplace. Sometimes a team member can surprise you by showing hitherto unseen leadership skills. That’s why team-building events can be a fantastic way of spotting future superstars.

Stage & the City’s approach to corporate team building

At Stage & the City, our approach is to tailor-make your team-building activities to fit around your objectives and the needs of your business and your team. After discussing what you want to get out of your team building day, we will design the exercises and activities to enable everyone taking part to learn new skills, develop trust and communication, and boost their confidence.

The benefits of team building for your business

Granted, team building is a fun day out of the workplace, but corporate team-building exercises will also boost employee engagement which will have a hugely positive impact on your workforce. Our Performing Arts activities can help in several ways:

Bonding – Putting on a performance is a great way to strengthen team bonds and encourage colleagues to work better together in the future. Performance is all about teamwork – when all team members pull together you can produce something very special, but to give the wow factor to the stage performance you put on at the end of the day, everyone has to fully understand that they are an integral part of the team and, as a result, work towards the success of the production.

Communication skills – There are a great many elements involved in staging a performance, so everyone involved needs to learn how to communicate effectively to get it right.

Trust – Trust is a key quality when it comes to creating a good team spirit. When staging a performance, you have to learn to trust that everyone will be there for you in the same way that you must be trusted to be there for everyone else.

Leadership – When all team members begin the day as equals without the normal work hierarchy, future leaders will begin to emerge, and may even take centre stage!

Hidden talent – When it comes to putting on a stage production, you’re bound to discover people’s hidden talents. We often find that people surprise themselves, which is great because it gives them such a big confidence boost.

Confidence and self-esteem – Acting, singing and/or dancing have a positive effect on people’s confidence, self-esteem and personal growth. After a fun day with us, you’ll notice a difference in the office when it comes to motivation and team morale.

Boosts morale – Organising a team building day shows your team members that you’re on their side. They’ll see you doing what you can to help them improve themselves at the same time as allowing them to do fun activities during office hours!

Indoor team-building activities

Most people think that corporate team-building events are going to involve travelling deep into the countryside to take part in outdoor events where it’s inevitable that everyone will get wet and cold… but that’s not always the case. Team building activities can take place indoors too. If you know your team will hate doing outdoor team-building activities, keep them warm and dry with our indoor team-building instead.

Our Performing Arts-based charity team-building activities are fun and because they take part indoors where it’s warm and dry, they can take place at any time of the year, and anywhere where there’s a suitable venue – great if you’re based in London or another city.

Why book a Stage & the City team-building event?

Our Performing Arts activities are suitable for people of all ages, fitness levels and abilities. They’re designed to appeal as much to beginners as they are to people who’ve dabbled in performance already – in other words, they’re perfect for anyone and everyone!

Case study

One of our team building events that everyone taking part in got a huge amount out of was ‘Thriller in a Day’ which we ran for a client’s management team. We spent the day teaching the managers the dance routine to Thriller, and in the evening they performed it on a stage that we’d turned into a graveyard. We hired professional make-up artists to do stage makeup so everyone looked amazing. We also filmed the performance so everyone involved could see how brilliant they all were, and what a great team effort it had been!

We even got the managers to raise sponsorship which resulted in extra funds for the Fiorentini Foundation. This not only supported their team-building efforts but also the client’s Corporate Responsibility ethos.
