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 garnered the common opinions, and misconceptions, of what team building is, and he’s sharing his findings, and solutions, with the world through his speaking engagements and his book, “TAKE THE FEAR OUT OF TEAM BUILDING.” Team building is more than zip lining, trust falls, and slide show presentations. Are you still feeling skeptical? It’s time you participated in this interactive (yes, attendees will partake in some simple, yet engaging activities), informative and engaging presentation.

Attendees will take away the following key points . . .
• Why “team building” is not a “bad word”
   • What positive team building experiences entail
   • A removal of fear and anxiety around both the words, and acts, of team building
   • When and how to host a productive team building experience beneficial to everyone on a team
   • First and foremost, team building can, and should, be FUN!
