Team Building

When they announced a strategy day at my work, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to volunteer to organise the team building exercise using the Winter Skating (40107) sets from the activity box provided by the CEE team.

I gave each of my colleagues a copy of the set and asked them to organise themselves into small teams, build something not using the instructions and be prepared to describe how the build represents team work and collaboration.  Here’s some* of the builds:

There were no modular buildings, but I was nevertheless impressed with the quality of the builds from my colleagues, which includes economists, engineers, lawyers and project finance specialists.  I think there may be a couple of closet AFOLs!

If you look closely, you’ll see that one of my colleagues choose to be a team of one.   Might need to explain the concept of a team to her again!  Everyone had a great time though and I had some great feedback afterwards, including “Best team building exercise” and “I’d forgotten how much fun LEGO is”!


*I learned that I’m not very good at taking photos with the iPhone, so apologies to my colleagues for the builds that didn’t make the collage!
