GNIDLIUB MAET: WHEN TEAM BUILDING IS BACKWARDS…

wp-1494646682449.

Of course you aren’t going to ‘click’ with everyone with whom you work. Yes, you can meet some life-long friends at work, and sometimes even a spouse. But, many times we work with people who are so much unlike us that we will never be buddies or friends.

However, we do have to learn to work with everyone in a productive and hopefully cordial manner. Whether you work in an office, a school, a factory or a store, we all have to work in a team environment. That’s why so many organizations try to integrate ‘team building’ activities to encourage healthy, productive, efficient and effective interaction.

But,


WHEN DID FORCING PEOPLE TO ‘SOCIALIZE’ WITH THE CO-WORKERS THEY DON’T ‘LIKE’ BECOMING TEAM BUILDING?


Team building should take place during the workday. Team building should be integrated into the processes. It should be a part of the culture.

When you work on projects together…go to meetings together…have working lunches together…work on the line together…have in-service together…go on business trips together…when you WORK together, that’s team building.

It’s the organization’s responsibility to facilitate team building in or at the facility. Forcing people to ‘hang out’ together isn’t for everybody, and that should be respected.

In fact, after work is the time for FAMILY BUILDING.

After work is the time for SELF BUILDING.

After work is the time for BUILDING our RELATIONSHIPS with GOD.

I’m persuaded to believe that God intends for us to separate work from our personal lives. I think He wants us to have a healthy work-life balance.

Psalm 128:1-4  (NKJV)

Blessed is every one who fears the Lord,
Who walks in His ways.

When you eat the labor of your hands,
You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
In the very heart of your house,
Your children like olive plants
All around your table.
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord.

 

Sometimes the best team building activity is time away from your co-workers.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

  1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and encouraging us to defend our private space! Especially when you are a Christian and don‘t drink and don‘t smoke and are not into fornication, it can be hard to participate in the „social life“ after work. Plus, in the evenings, I oftentimes much rather spend some quality time with THE LORD and in HIS word rather than watch others drink and make slimy jokes and flirt. In fact, I really struggle to get them to leave me alone during the working hours (THE LORD has blessed me with good looks, but I am not into fooling around!) so why would I open even more doors for that and be present and available? Thank you again, this is just the right confirmation at the right time and I shall STAND strong! I have been blessed by all the encouragements you keep sending out! Thank you again and GOD bless you!
