In the early stages of team building, you can use the following exercise so that every employee gets an overview of whom they are working with, how people know each other and how teams are structured within your corporation or department.
Overview: Get to know each other by talking about your connections and similarities.
Goal: Getting an overwiev of the team’s structure and whom everyone is working with.
Example“We hopefully got to know each other better during this workshop. Maybe we even found out some surprising facts about each other and could detect some things we have in common. As a team it is good to have a basis beyond the work related topics. Everyone feels more valued when they are not just seen as the function they fulfill in the team but as a person with a life, interests and individuality. Additionally we can see that beyond this individually we are not even that different and there will always be something about an other person we can relate to. Especially in situations of disagreement this will be helpful to remember. ”
