Team Building Harare, Zimbabwe


In quality control, there is a concept called feed forward control. It essentially says if the input is correct, with all the systems and people in their rightful positions, the output tends to take care of itself. The other extreme is equally right, if the input is of poor quality there is little magic that can be performed to right the output. At the center of all production and service provision are the people who run the systems and drive everything forward. If the people are not firing from all cylinders, there is no guarantee the output will be good enough. The same principle of feed forward control applies to manpower in greater magnitude. Great teamwork is built from the point of entry. Getting it right from the recruitment process goes a long way in building up a formidable team. People are however exceptional in that even though they might have the knowhow, productivity can drop as a result of the goings on in the environment or other developments within the workplace that can water down their morale. The need for continuous motivation and inspiration cannot be ignored for long.

Great sports team commit to continuous training if they are to win games. Winning a game today is no assurance that another win will come tomorrow. It is on record how highly profitable entities fall in the doldrums because of failure to keep pace with the tempo of the operating environment. Members of the team ought to keep on pushing to get the best out of each other. At times, it’s not a matter of looking for reasons why the performance would be falling. In a number of cases, failing to sharpen the axe is the major cause of reduced productivity. Like a piece of machinery that undergoes servicing from time to time, the nuts and bolts of every team ought to be oiled from time to time as a way of keeping the tempo high.


At Noah’s Ark Team Building Services, we are convinced that every human being requires continuous activation and motivation to keep them on the go. Without the inspiration and updating of the skills set, many with great potential quickly wane away, with the great value locked within them failing to reach fruition. Our experience has honed within us the belief that inspired teams achieve great results as we have witnessed mediocre teams rising to greatness as a result of heighted concern over their affairs, inspiration and motivation unto great results.

We ignite the passion and nurture self-belief. Many team members lose their confidence as a result of what life presents to them, with their performance falling dismally. In the same mode that waters down their confidence, inspiration can play the same role in reigniting the lost mojo. Purpose is usually lost because of pressures and frustration inherent in the environment. In the same commotion and hullaballoo, some teams remain focused, identifying great opportunities in the process. It comes down to knowing that all is not lost. Football teams have come back from a three nil score line with few minutes remaining of the game to winning a major championship. The secret to such great comebacks lies in inspiration and motivation. What’s been achieved before can likewise be achieved by your team. With spirited effort from everyone through the ranks and file of the team, there is nothing that can stop them from achieving great results.

A leader’s personal charm and magnetism to attract, inspire and influence others towards the pursuit of higher goals and ideals is central to building winning teams. Great leaders have the ability to communicate the vision with passion as a way of convincing everyone to buy into it and run with such a set agenda. Appealing and focusing the energies of team members towards a common goal is demanded of every leader who desires to make a lasting impression on the team. This is never a matter of being extroverted or loud mouthed on the part of the leader as many might want to believe. Instead, it comes down to a collection of attributes that carry the necessary drive demanded in making things happen; qualities which can be acquired by anyone

I have seen those who bake cakes mixing the different ingredients in a mixer. The process takes time and when it’s done, the eggs cannot be separated from the sugar nor from the salt. The final product is so different from the individual ingredients that would have gotten into the cake making process. Anyone who has also tasted honey can concur that the flowers from which the pollen was drawn and the sweetness that honey is are worlds apart. In the same mold as the baking of cakes and the making of honey, team cohesiveness is the strength and interconnectedness of relations between team members that makes the team a unified whole. The constituent parts that make up the team cannot be untangled as the team functions as a unified unit with little, if any point where there is a weak link.

When the goal is not known, a lot of energy can be wasted in the pursuit of other agenda not in line with why the team exists in the first place. Great teams place a priority in building a common goal and communicating it to very member. In teams that have developed the habit of winning together, the WE is always bigger than the ME of each individual member. The emphasis on the WE comes from knowing the WHY of the team, which is addressed by the unifying force – the common goal. The existence of the common goal makes the entire team work towards the same thing.  It is challenging and frustrating to the team if each member feels that they are more important than the team or their personal agenda supersedes the team’s goal. The team should be seen for what it is – always bigger than the individual team members regardless of how talented the team member might be individually, cementing the fact that there is no I in a Team.
