Team-Building Activities


A reader asked me if I think that team-building efforts are useful to help create productive work environments or do I feel that they are largely a waste of time?

If you don’t know me by now. You will never-ever-never know me. Whoa-oh.

Then she gave me a link to a survey. What? Wait, I’m beginning to think that this was a generic email blast. Boo.

I say that forced fun really sucks and that most team-building efforts are a waste of time. You know what’s okay? Lunch. Having a drink. Doing something other than work — like maybe a baseball game, hitting the casino or maybe a meeting where you say ‘screw it’ and go to the movies instead.

But any activity with a balloon or a rod is bullshit. And pervy. Don’t even get me started on a rope.

Next question?
