    Someone at a course the other day thanked me for having none of those bonding exercises in there! Clearly he’d had a few bad experiences. The thing about your courses is you don’t create artificial situations. Pro soccer teams have used you (talk about prima donnas) through to senior business men and your approach works. If it didn’t they’d tell you.

    Keep up the good work!

      Thanks Richard. Our industry has a long way to go in terms of reputation management. The Vodaphone adverts mentioned by Nick are not fair and not representative, but they do illustrate a problem that needs to be overcome.

    There’s clearly a lot more to teambuilding than the cliches as depicted in those Vodaphone (?) ads on the underground. Thanks for this useful outline.

      Thanks Nick. The industry isn’t very happy about the Vodaphone portrayal. I don’t know whether it will be a good or a bad thing for team building.

    It’s true that team-building activities I’ve been a part of have stuck in my mind long after any of the ‘chalk-and-talk’ workshops I’ve attended. But it’s not just about being memorable and having fun. I think the key challenge must be to convince clients they’ll get a measurable return on their investment.

    I’m not a simulation fan . ran teambuilding Training in US Navy for 3 Years . They Remember the simulation , have fun , but later forget the lesson involved .

    I get involved in teambuilding from time to time as a climbing instructor – what I see is a change in the leadership pattern during a session and often the real lesson, especially to CEOs, is to let the right person lead if it’s their area of strength.
