Recently, more and more companies are giving importance to the working collective and the relationship among their colleagues. Relationships with colleagues at work are just as important as relationships in private life, with family and friends.
Teamwork often determines the success or failure of a business, therefore, introducing team-building activities is vital.
Corporate sailing is one of the best ways to build quality relationships among working colleagues. The best form of conflict resolution activity among colleagues are activities that allow them to get to know each other on a personal level.
Crew members on board have different tasks, but a common goal.
“Good colleagues are those who know that WE is more powerful than ME!”
When trust is present, each individual within the sailing team becomes stronger as they feel part of an effective, cohesive group. Trust is crucial for any organization because it provides a sense of security. When employees feel safe, they are more open to other colleagues, more accepting, and easier to deal with, share knowledge and are not afraid to show their weaknesses. Sailing is a safe sport, but there are always unforeseen situations where confidence in other crew members is of a great importance. When your employees step out of their comfort zone, they will build the trust into their colleagues.
Successful communication is the basis for good and quality work of the sailing team. On the boat each member has his role and task. Only with open, two – way street communication tasks can be done properly and at the right moment, otherwise the wind will adjust the sails, not the team.
Through corporate sailing and team building activities, more effective teamwork is created and strengthened, whose members understand that they share a common goal they need to achieve, but also communicate openly about individual goals if they have one.
Sailing, as a sport and recreational activity, has a very favorable and multiple effect on psycho-physical health. The fresh sea wind, sea water and salt, activating the body and muscles during sailing, are just some of the factors contributing to better body condition.
Besides sailing, there are numerous additional activities to fulfill the itinerary. Bike and walking tours, kayaking and paddle boarding, social games… All these activities can help to deep and improve the relations.
