What is the first thing you think of when you hear (or read) “team building”?

Why does team building, whether you spell it as one word or two, have such a negative connotation to so many?

For those who are naturally active and/or outgoing, team building is often welcomed with open arms; however, for those who are introverted, and/or less athletically inclined, it’s often a cause of hesitation, fear, and anxiety.

By conducting a series of short surveys, Matt May garnered the common opinions, and misconceptions, of what team building is, and he is joining Adam to share his findings and solutions with you.


  • Why “team building” is perceived as a “bad word”;
  • What positive team building experiences entail;
  • How to remove fear and anxiety around both the words and acts of team building;
  • How to make team building FUN;
  • And so much more!

Team building is more than zip lining, trust falls, and slide show presentations. Are you still feeling skeptical? Then you better tune in!
