Who remembers working in an office? (Raise your hands!) Now who remembers team-building exercises, however awkward and embarrassing (in a nice way) they might have been? Of course we all do. From lunches where we shared interesting bits of our personalities to parties where we all took quizzes to find out “what kind of animal are you”, the office team-building exercises that are part of everyday corporate life hold a lot of value. They’re great for sharing our emotions and humanity, breaking down barriers and getting us all to see each other as people, not just employees.
