Spring Time

Team Building in Perth and across WA in the Spring is superb.

Getting outdoors with your team and tackling some interesting problem solving challenges is a great way to build relationships to develop greater efficiencies in your business as well as rewarding your staff with a fun and engaging day.

Merribrook Corporate Outdoors runs programs across the State including at our Retreat in Margaret River, in the Swan Valley, Fremantle,  Mandurah, Perth CBD or the destination of your choice.

We offer a range of programs to suit your objectives, budget and group size.

What is Your Teams Goal?

How often are you asked what your goals are and you cant give a clear, concise answer?
How often do you ask your manager this same question?
As a manager, how often do you ask yourself?

This poses a very interesting point, as in this day and age, no one in the world is as important to us as ourselves and in a work scenario, those we work with, yet a large proportion of us are unclear as to the direction we or the company is headed!

A Japanese Proverb states “Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.”

Ok, so I need to set some goals for myself and my team, what’s the best way to do it?

When setting a goal, no matter what for, check it meets the widely used S.M.A.R.T criteria:

Specific – No matter how big or small, the more details the better!

M - Measurable – Put a measurement in place, without this how will you know when you have reached your goal or if you are on track?

AAchievable – Whilst making them challenging, we must make sure our goals are actually achievable!

RResults driven – this goes without saying, all goals should be results driven for you, the company and those directly affected by the outcome.

TTimeline – having a deadline helps to measure expectations as well as celebrate milestones along the way.

As we move into 2011 and you begin your forecast for the year ahead, I ask you, what is your goal for the year, what is your teams goal and how will you know when it happens?

Can you turn your team into a championship team?
