Are you using team building days to train?

Team building days are great opportunities to do training without the distractions of your day-to-day activities. After a morning of fun and breaking bread, the afternoon is a good time for a little team training and perhaps an early out. Take some time to evaluate what your team’s training needs are and plan a short (an hour or so) training event that will sharpen their skills. Instead of doing the training each time as the leader, spread the training opportunities throughout the team. This will further build lateral bonds within your team rather than having everyone depend solely on the leader for their training. If you are doing team building days monthly, this provides you with an opportunity to train very regularly.
