Team Building Resources

HTI Catalysts’ Five Strategies for Team Building 
  • Understand personalities & workstyles
  • Work together/collaborate
  • Build Relationships
  • Celebrate small wins & big gains.
  • Have Fun!
STACK – A great activity for closing out a professional learning session. STACK stands for:
S – Shout-Out
T – Thank you
A – Apology
C – Curious
K – Key takeaway
Small Wins – a fun and low-cost way to celebrate the efforts and personalities of team members.
Instructions: Place gifts below (or other appropriate substitutions) in gift bags with festive tissue paper. Using the tags on the gifts or a slide with the accolades below, invite participants to recognize others as one way we can celebrate small wins in the moment. Ask them to make a brief statement to the group as to why the recipient deserves this recognition and have them present the gift. To avoid multiple recipients for each gift, have the “giver” pick up the gift and present it to the winner. You can either invite everyone to pick up the gifts at the same time or one at a time. Add your fun ideas to the list!
  • Candle – You light up a room
  • Thumb Drive – You are informed
  • Double & Triple-A Batteries – You energize us
  • Tea & Mug – You keep us calm
  • Popcorn – You keep us entertained
