The importance of defining your path in life
During the pandemic and the switch to working from home, companies need ways to keep their teams focused and maintain a sense of togetherness.
But in most cases, virtual team building feels more agonising than the real thing. It is also inherently flawed.
It's much harder to achieve the same level of bonding when you're not physically together.
Research shows that teams who experience mutual hardships strengthen connections, such as struggling through bad weather together.
Effective team building contains two things:
Virtual team-building fails at both because it is nearly impossible to provide specialized attention on a group video call. And if you're attending a team-building video chat from your home office, it won't feel like a change of environment.
One school of thought is that the entire concept of team building is flawed, not just that of virtual team building.
Participating in team-building exercises won't usually help. The political and complex nature of the workplace means that people will return to their normal way of behaving.
The challenge with online team-building is to simulate the physical experiences of a team-building day trip.
Although online activities fall short, they can work as long as businesses feel like they're fulfilling their goals and the events feel really enjoyable.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
