Many of our corporate structures today are based on concepts that were realized in ancient times by some of the greatest generals leaders and strategic minds in human History.
Believe it or not these leaders were probably the first people to develop and utilize the power of team building, knowing your peoples strengths and weaknesses and applying these models to maximum effect. Look at Leonidas of Sparta and the 300, look at Sun Tsu who conquered the middle east, look at Napoleon and Alexander the great, they all knew what team building meant.

Work today is organized around team and groups, we can not achieve high performance as just individuals, a team exists for the sole purpose of completing an assigned task. A effective team is characterized by a kind of synergy that results from combining the range of experience and the expertise that each individual brings to the team. Team members must first agree to a goal to be achieved and be willing to learn to work together. An effective team leader needs to know the level of commitment, motivation, technical ability, performance consistency, personal issues as well as motivators, positive reinforcements and stress relievers for team members in order to manage the team well. Within a Self directed work team structure, members must be committed, mutually accountable, expected to share in leadership roles, and participate in a collaborative manner.
Team building is the process that develops cooperation and teamwork within a unit. To constitute an effective team, its members must share a common goal, have respect for each other, and be motivated to use the strengths of each member to achieve their objectives. Current corporate philosophy stresses that each member of a team plays an integral part in the success of the company. With understaffing, burnout, outsourcing, and other morale defeating activities on the rise, many corporations realize they must nurture communication within the organization. In addition, many businesses form teams, for varying purposes. Therefore individuals can be members of several teams. For a effective team, time should be established for getting acquainted and the exchange of ideas. From the employees point of view, being part of a team usually provides a sense of loyalty and ownership. Through activities know as team building exercises, individuals can practice brainstorming, collaboration, creativity, trust, and feedback. Most team building activities focus on areas such as problem solving, organizational development, and conflict resolution. Participants can also develop leadership, interpersonal, presentation, and negotiation skills.
