Monday Team Building Exercise

On Monday I had to spend the day offsite learning about the five or possibly six dysfunctions of a team. I've been on team building exercises before and they run out of steam pretty quickly.

But it was all right, because they gave me Mr. Blobby. I think he was a trinket in passing, but he's agreed to be my permanent friend.

He is so cool, and soft and playful, I might never be stressed again.

Hi Sis

Can I have one please!!!

I seem to be permanently stressed and I am 12 years ahead of you on the slipperly slope to breakdown and dementia.

I note that, in this age of austerity and public service cuts, the private sector (I'm making an assumption here) is still free to waste money on teaching (probably irrelevant) common sense. But then, I was always accused of not being a team-player.

You can both have a virtual Mr. Blobby and I'll ask Human Resources where they got him, as I can't find it on a quick web search. (He's labeled Ankyo, but that didn't help.)

This particular team building exercise was interesting. We had a qualified, licensed psychotherapist (or some such) as the facilitator and we actually came to some conclusions. So yay for team building exercises.
