Feel like a team, at the office and at home. Learn how to use meals, communication, and fun to set up the right environment for teamwork.
- Before a team can work well together,…even if it's got the perfect mix of people,…it needs one more thing…which is to have the right physical environment…where we can feel like a team.…As well as having a shared vision,…to be able to become a really good team,…we need to sit together…and ideally even eat together.…And we need to meet regularly…both in team meetings at work and ideally socially.…So the physical environment is important.…
Are there communal areas…and times when people are allowed or encouraged to go there?…Are there enough meetings but not too many?…And are they well-run?…Are there any fun things…which make people talk to each other…and get to know each other to open up…and show the real them?…This environment stuff is really…the job of the boss to set up…but any team member can suggest activities…that will this to happen,…like games, competitions,…trips to places,…celebrations of anything from birthdays…and births of colleagues' babies to…big orders received and projects being completed.…
