Just simple quotes that basically tell you the whole story about the essence of teambuilding and teambuilding training. I find it very funny to notice that the term ‘teambuilding / team building’ is being used whenever people are thinking about teams that work together. But that is not the essence of a teambuilding definition. For example, not every team wants to become more and more efficient. They simply work together. They are not working towards a common goal; they just do their job.
In teambuilding you need a different kind of mindset!. A teambuilding mindset.
That’s what my story is behind the quotes.
Ok, here are my quotes for July:
Only by binding together as a single force will we remain strong and unconquerable.
Trust is knowing that when a team member does push you, they’re doing it because they care bout the team

We live in a world and time in which we love individualism. Look at the amount of selfie’s that are made on a daily basis. People find themselves so damn important. But we are humans and the only thing we have in common is the fact that we need each other in order to survive.
“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” –Michael Jordan
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” –Helen Keller,
You can be good at one thing, but if you combine this talent with the other specialties of others, you are dealing with a real force!. Why do we find it so hard to admit that we need the help of others in order to achieve much higher goals?
The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.
There is no ‘i’ in team but there is in win.
Well, 2 years ago the Dutch football team was such a team; loads of talents, but they didn’t operate together. They didn’t achieve anything. They had to forget about the ‘I” and that is what you see in the football team which is now at the World Champion’s cup. This is a real team; they don’t mind who makes the goal, as long as the goal is being made!. They achieved this by entering team building activities with a mindset of being a team, before they even started it.
Teambuilding and teambuilding games is/are not about the individual, it is all about what you achieve with each other. No skill is more important than the other’s. As long as it serves the common goal; becoming the world champion in football.
