Team Building

Last week I helped run a team building retreat for Light and Courage. The staff wanted to work on a few issues and have a day to summarize the year. We went out to Shashe Dam, which is about 35 km south of Francistown. I had the staff members go through 3 different team building exercises that are quite tough. There were some struggles, but the group was able to complete all of them eventually. We had good discussions about ideas that worked and didn't work and then I tired to apply what they learned from the activities to their job at Light and Courage. I am not sure if everything translated well but we did have some discussion. All in all, I thought the retreat went quite well (and much better than I thought it would).
