When we suggest team building as an individual or organizational development solution, the first reactions we collect very often result in a certain scepticism about the real effectiveness of its use. But getting into a group of colleagues where people know each other can sometimes be difficult, especially if you are several newcomers in the same period.
This week, Outgo suggests 10 team building activities to do with your office colleagues to break the ice, or to weld even stronger group cohesion within your company.
