building teams

Have you ever been on a team building day? I remember a team building day with the diverse staff team I worked with as a missionary. We had different activities that day with varying degrees of difficulty and hilarity. Ice-breaker games were also beneficial for getting to know our team...

The team destroyer that is...GOSSIP!

It's often at work that we face our biggest challenges, especially in the area of our talk and interactions with others.
