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.
- Vision, common purpose and creation of synergy
- Roles and responsibilities
- Motivation and enthusiasm
- Trust, no cheating (integrity)
- No entitlement
- Respect including for diversity
- Most of all fun!
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.
