Brainstorming + team = success

Posted on Fri March 15, 2013.

Brainstorming + team = success. A good formula to remember if you want a winning team in your company.
This week we want to dedicate our page to the success of brainstorming during conferences at the Vaalnest Boutique Hotel at Vaal Marina.
Our hotel at the Vaal Dam has become a popular conference venue for companies who want their teams to break away from the office to the peace and tranquility of the Vaal Dam.
Many brainstorms have been held and company strategies planned in our conference rooms.
A recent American study found that there are many key factors to a fruitful brain storming session amongst colleagues.
One of them is that if you take a team out of the office it seems to stimulate their creative thoughts.
According to researchers the right topic and management of a brainstorm will determine the outcome.
The interaction between the team members must be positive and no criticism should be allowed. Negativity spoils the creative juices flowing.
The team leader should divide the workers in groups consisting of people who do not normally work together. Not only will they form new bonds, but man’s secret wish to impress others will give a competitive edge to the session. Workers will dig really deep into the grey matter of their brains to impress each other.
The team leader’s job is to keep the group enthusiastic.
The choice of venue for a conference is another key factor that influences the success. Researchers feel the team must be taken to a beautiful venue far away from the office.
The setting of our hotel makes it a perfect conference venue. We are only an hour’s drive from Johannesburg, but the peace and tranquility of the hotel and Vaal Marina offers fertile soil for good brainstorming sessions.
Another reason why our hotel is such a popular conference venue is because we have a in-house coordinator who organizes everything from the venue, food to the accommodation. All the teams have to do, is make a booking.
