Business Haiku on Motivation and Teamwork
The View at the Front of the Wagon is a very different one than The View at the Back of the Wagon.
There is that old quote that if you don’t know where you are going, any path will get you there. In a team-based performance situation, it is WAY worse than that, in that the people at the back of the wagon could probably care less about where you need to go. After all, all they see are boards and hands. There is no attractiveness of the final destination or even a clue of what success might be, in their minds.
Any look at the surveys and research on people and performance confirms the reality that there is little alignment, engagement, trust or motivation in so many workplaces.
For 25 years, we have been selling and supporting a team building exercise that every business should consider running for their people, one that focuses on the many positive impacts of team and inter-team collaboration and alignment. The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine is one of the very best simulations in the world, based on the reviews of owner / users.
We Sell Teamwork.
For the FUN of It!
