An excellent start

According to our MBE (Management for Business Excellence) time schedule on Friday 3/10/08 we had a lecture on “Team Build” at 9:00 am. I have to admit that I was very quirious about what a lecture on “team build” could entail. Well, let me start by telling you that it was nothing close to a lecture.

It was a game! It was fun!But at the same time it was important and useful! It was all about cooperation, time management, leadership and above all teamwork!

At the beginning there were questions! Difficult questions!

So our team,Ally, Toon, Mei, Gilber, Louis and myself, were sitting there raking our brains to find the right answers.It is a good thing that the virtues were equally distributed, some were good at the logical questions while others could handle better the arithmical ones. At all times the whole team was trying to contribute in order to reach our goal….

And then, after a little help from Paul –I am afraid we were in a tight spot-our next task was revealed:”Make a tall giraffe”. Seriously, we had to make a giraffe as tall as possible using only newspapers and selotape.After discussing and brainstorming for a couple of minutes we all had different responsibilities e.g. make the legs or create a long neck which of course we had to finish in time, because our deadline was close…..

At the end our giraffe was a success….But the real success was our cooperation and the dedication we all showed in order to fufill our goal….

There is no doubt that the experience we all shared on Friday morning will be extremely useful in the future….were making a tall giraffe unfortunately won’t be the objective.

    A good post Lila. Although making giraffes will not be your objective in future tasks, there is no reason why the projects shouldn’t be as enjoyable, because I am sure that the real enjoyment comes from achieving an objective through working together and taking pride in your work. Welcome to MBE :-)
