I did my time in the corporate world. Which means I’ve done my share of team building exercises. Relay races, building stuff, scavenger hunts… I can’t say any of them ever really changed how I looked at my co-workers or how they looked at me.
But they were a welcome change of pace from the standard day-to-day.
Looking at this cartoon now, I probably should have had at least one dog rolling his eyes. I know I always did.
(chuckle!), the cartoon’s funny! I actually like team-building exercises. I think it’s a great way to get to know a bit more about people you work with. But, like you mentioned, it can be a welcome and refreshing change from the day-to-day, which I agree with.
Team leadership and team building skills are required to maintain, development and cohesion in the group.
