Are your team building efforts a waste of time?
Leaders are frustrated because the team is not committing and sticking to new behaviours.
Teams are frustrated because they must sit through another team building session knowing that nothing will change (or that the real issue is not being addressed).
Facilitators are frustrated because the work that they are doing with clients isn’t actioned.
You cannot say that team building is a waste of time if you aren’t using the right tool to help you stitch together the team.
“In summary, simply lecturing about the importance of teamwork is not sufficient to create meaningful improvements in teamwork; rather, substantive positive effects can be derived by having team members engage in activities that require them to actively learn about and practise teamwork.”
