Seven Team Building Activities That Actually Build Stronger Teams | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
If team building exercises suck, then why are they so popular? We cover the research behind strong teams and have suggestions for real, meaningful team bonding.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Great teams bond together through activities that encourage overcoming shared pain and fears and learning about each other. It doesn't happen naturally in the course of sitting in closed-off cubicles. You have to force it to occur by putting employees in situations where they must work together intimately as a team, learn to "get each other's back", and rely on each other. All l high performing teams use team-building exercises to improve the way they work together. Have you considered the results you could get if your team was hi-performing?

Most organizations are frantically searching for solutions on how to improve the way in which employees and teams are working remotely. It's the new normal. It's fresh ground. None of us have ever experience this before. What are the best practices?
