This cast gives our guidance on what to do when you have to attend a team building event.

On the Manager Tools casts, we've told managers that we don't believe that 'team-building' events are effective. One day of playing games or drinking together doesn't help the team bond. Working towards a common goal, being honest and appreciative with each other and delivering together does.

However, we know that not every manager is a Manager Tools manager. Many of the individual contributors listening will have to attend team-building events. Some of us will be forced to go paintballing or share 'trust falls'. Whatever the event chosen, some of us will love it and some hate it. How can we best deal with it?

This Cast Answers These Questions

  • What should I do before I attend a team building event?
  • What do I need to do during a team building event?
  • What do I do after a team building event to make it effective?
