Let me start by saying that team building is a serious subject because good teamwork gives you synergy which results in a competitive advantage. However, learning to improve teamwork does not have to be serious, it can be fun.

I believe that a team-building session needs to combine mind work i.e. in the classroom to identify what the team’s intent or goal is and then some practical teamwork on how to achieve it.

The ten constructs that get practiced and magnified in teamwork practical sessions are:
  1. Vision, common purpose and creation of synergy
  2. Roles and responsibilities
  3. Communication
  4. Motivation and enthusiasm
  5. Innovation
  6. Trust, no cheating (integrity)
  7. Sacrifice
  8. No entitlement
  9. Respect including for diversity
  10. Compliance
  11. Most of all fun!
Note, none of the team building activities will embarrass participants or put them in harm’s way.

What a privilege to have you host our team session. The insights and life lessons you explored with our team brought a different dynamic and outlook on life; we left inspired, in a positive frame and highly motivated. Thank you for the book – it certainly reminds one of our own abilities, and how we can overcome almost any life challenge. The team-building exercises were fantastic; a great way to identify what can be done through proper communication and teamwork. Thank you for a great day.
