There's a strippers club here in town with both male and female dancers.

an orgy would build trust and engage harmonious relationships.

Rude: "Morning staff meeting with kegs and eggs."

(and legs!)

"Team building" is one of those dead phrases that should circle the drain along with "jump start the economy."

Good teams always have a common enemy. That's one reason grandkids and grandparents make such a good team. They have a common enemy.

I suggest you role-play a hostage event whereby you assume the role of a gun-toting lunatic. Normal office hierarchy will break down and you'll find out very quickly who the team players are and who shows real managerial skills, ie. your manager will be over in the corner weeping and that nerdy guy from IT will be organizing your take down.

As part of this scenario, you could also have the hostages strip naked. Shame is an excellent motivator.

orgy. cant go wrong with an old-fashioned orgy.
 
2003-01-27 12:26:38 PM
Hmmmm. Perhaps provide them with a common goal, and an adequate supply of time and resources to meet that goal.


Naaaaa. Have them do "trust falls" for a weekend at an offsite location, spouses included, and then keep things business as usual in the office.

"team building" = lame
Put them in a room with some food and beer.
 
2003-01-27 03:35:55 PM
Make them suspicious of each other, spread rumors, make them think that each wants to have sex with anothers spouse, tell them all that everyone else is making more than them.
 
2003-01-27 03:49:17 PM
Violent sodomy, and I mean VIOLENT in the power-drill sense of the word.
 
2003-01-27 03:49:31 PM
Have them try to make a sunclock using a donut and a pen.
 
2003-01-27 03:49:47 PM
Nothing says team-building more than FISTING!!

Everyone could learn how to use a HAND or TWO.

LAN PARTY!!!

Combine the above ideas of "beer" and "orgy". The best of both worlds.
 
2003-01-27 03:52:11 PM
an orgy with free drugs, and a lot of them?
 
2003-01-27 03:52:26 PM
LAN party? How about a LAN party on WEED?

Beer and partial nudity usually work pretty well.
 
2003-01-27 03:53:00 PM
Group sex. Focus the learning on "sharing" and "mutual trust."
 
2003-01-27 03:53:12 PM
collectively murder someone
not necessarily someone you know, a bum or something will suffice
then, the blood is on everyone's hands

In all seriousness...

I'm a corporate trainer for IBM. In our new-hire classes, I have to make sure the new sales reps get to know each other well and build some friendships. To that end, I've used something I found on Fark once.

I ask my class to write down the funniest thing that's ever happened to them...in 10 words or less. Give 'em about 5 minutes to think about it, then collect all the answers.

After that, I read all the answers aloud, and the class votes on who they think came up with the story. Then afterward, whoever got the most right wins a cheap little gag prize (candy, mousepad, etc.)

It allows people to talk about their favorite thing (themselves) and it generally relaxes everyone and gets them laughing. Perfect icebreaker for pre-class jitters.

Tea-bagging builds trust.
 
2003-01-27 03:53:57 PM
Beer and Pizza always works.
 
2003-01-27 03:54:05 PM
Circle jerk. The government seems to already use this method from my experience.
 
2003-01-27 03:54:06 PM
Pit them in an elaborate team based combat, the losers die, and the winners get a 5% raise. Suggestible weapons: Baseball Bats and Crowbars. Please host live webcast of event.
 
2003-01-27 03:54:07 PM
I'm definately a twister fan. doesn't have to be naked, but a tequila shot on each circle before playing is good. No more than three players at a time. If you land on a circle with a drink, you have to drink it ( a non playing partner has to feed it to you) If you fall over you're out.
 
2003-01-27 03:54:10 PM
Strip poker. Swap partners for the evening. Compare notes.
 
2003-01-27 03:54:12 PM
Sex.
 
2003-01-27 03:54:14 PM
One word: Counterstrike!!

Have your team beat up on Marketing or some other group of assholes.

You've got Beer, orgy and naked twister in this thread so far...sounds like you're set for team building.

Drunk, naked Twister with baby oil.
Works everytime.
Note:
Exclude all guys.....unless you're into that sort of shiat-cave spelunking.
 
2003-01-27 03:55:07 PM
Fark "team building"! It's another weak buzz word that's almost as gay as this "male merging" crap they wanted me to do this one time.
 
2003-01-27 03:55:16 PM
How about setting them up with some cards from that Magic: The Losers, episode 8 RPG crap?

That's gotta be less painful than corporate team-building garbage that only hurts morale.

What people like is money. Give them all a nice bonus, and have everyone who is so imclined meet for happy hour someplace.
 
2003-01-27 03:55:31 PM
I think an all out brawl is the way to go.
Try to organize it into one side against the other. Men vs Chicks or old vs. young are classics.


If violence is not to your liking, you can never go wrong with TETRIS FOR MONEY!
 
2003-01-27 03:55:44 PM
as orgy is taken, I'll tone it down a bit
and just go with "circle jerk"
