Team Building Holidays: Why it’s a must-do

 

The holidays are right around the corner, and the spirit of togetherness is all around. Whether we like it or not, collaboration is essential for the progression of human society. The ability to successfully work together is vital in boardrooms, team huddles, and classrooms alike. What better way to build relationships with people than on a warm tropical island? It’s not the most obvious method for team building, but taking the office out on a recreational holiday has proven to be an effective mode for strengthening company culture. Here are three reasons why Cape Verde is a great place to relax and a prime destination for team building.

 

Builds strength

Humans are innately social creatures. Our ancestors relied on tribal dynamics to survive the dangers of the outside world. The benefits of cultivating genuine connections are endless. Individuals who understand the importance of building relationships capitalize on the ability to ultimately win championships, establish revolutionary legislation, and create songs that stay with us forever. Have you ever not been a particular fan of a person until you spent time with them, only to discover that they aren’t as bad as they seemed? What a difference quality time makes. After all, it only took Belle an hour and a half to fall in love with the Beast.

We suggest planning a team holiday instead of holding your team hostage in an enchanted castle in hopes that they get along. Here at No Limits Adventure, we offer plenty of activities for you and your team members to participate in. Activities such as Island Survivor, hiking, and segway tours are great options for people to get to know each other in a positive environment away from workplace stress. 

Additionally, team holidays allow individuals to form genuine bonds. Traveling together, whether by car or plane, will enable individuals to get to know each other on an intimate level. Where people usually converse about upcoming meetings and pressing projects, now they have the opportunity to discuss their interests and excitement for the journey ahead.

 

Gives everyone a break

We all know that one person who is a self-proclaimed ‘workaholic.’ They never vacation and often experience burnout because of it. There is nothing wrong with individuals who are passionate about their work. However, balance is essential. Not only does time away from the office relieve stress, but it ultimately improves morale. When people can enjoy life away from their daily responsibilities, it improves their mental and overall well-being.

 

Change of Scenery

The change of scenery also allows for creativity to spark. Often, all your team needs is some time away from their desks in order to come up with their next big idea. A change of pace can help break the monotony of day-to-day tasks and improve the brain’s capabilities. With so many beautiful natural landscapes and a vibrant culture influenced by the heart of Africa and Latin America, there is no shortage of inspiration on any island in Cape Verde.

 

The Takeaway

Investing in people is always worth it in the long run. The bonds we form with each other can catapult our individual success. Our ancestral ties of belonging to a barter society still hold firm today. We work best when we are together. Forming bonds with people outside of the office will always benefit you and your brand. If you are in the market for a fun way for your team to connect on a deeper level, we encourage you to visit us here in Cape Verde.
