Do you believe in teambuilding sessions?  With or w/out a moderator?  Do you think they are effective or bullshit?  If effective, what makes them good?  What types of questions are asked or activities are completed?

For me, the jury is out.  People are for the most part, who they are.  If you don’t like them, don’t work with them.  Or, am I being too cynical?

Or is it that vino and cocktails make for the best "teambuilding" sessions?

Or orienteering on a mountain somewhere with your co-workers (this, btw, would be my worst nightmare…too many people with allergies around my firm).

This is one thing I am thinking about this morning.  It’s a huge industry.  But is it making a difference?
