How Builders approach Team Building

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Team-building activities are fun at the moment (well some are), but they don’t create a bond that will last the entire school year. 
  • True cohesion comes when everyone is focused on the same vision, mission, and core values.
  • Don’t assume that just because everyone says they are “here for the kids,” you all share the same purpose. “Here for the kids” means something different to everyone.
  • We spend all our time developing individual competence and neglect to build organizational competence, then wonder why we can’t achieve more together. 
  • Nothing builds confidence like success. That means that sometimes, success must come first before people will truly believe in themselves.
It’s that time of year again when everyone is participating in “ice-breakers” and “team building.” And, while these activities can be fun (or unfortunately in many cases, NOT fun), they don’t go far enough to build a team that can withstand whatever this year has in store for us.

That’s why Builders approach team building differently.
