Team Build (here we go again)


The team in my department is doing one of those team building exercises that go on from time to time. It is always a bit of a challenge to strike a proper balance in this sort of thing. On the one hand, this is a job and all most of us want to do is show up, do our work and go home. Every fortnight or month, we get paid. Every year, we go away for a holiday to rest and recover. And then we’re back to showing up daily, working, going home and getting paid periodically. On the other hand though, because we spend a fair bit of time with our team members/people in an organisation that is our employer, it only makes sense to see how we can make it all happier and more meaningful for everyone. Hence these team building sessions. It’s almost like a necessary evil but it’s also counter-productive to so call it. Perhaps it’s like a work-out. It doesn’t quite sound like fun but it can be very good for you…
