A Happy Thanksgiving Treat: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches!

Team building is an essential component to help the team work together to make the most out their CEO experience. Team work requires self-awareness, understanding the motivations and perspectives of others, and communicating a shared vision effectively.

A favorite team building exercise that reveals the importance of effective communication is how to make a PB&J. Team members were divided into groups and asked to write out simple instructions on how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Then, another group has to follow those same instructions exactly as they were written.

The results were quite comical...and revealing. The team learned an important lesson, don't assume that someone knows what you're thinking or understands what you're saying simply because you said it. Communication requires back and forth conversations even for some of the simplest tasks to get completed effectively and efficiently.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone (and may you enjoy much more than the likes of our PB&J's :-)
