*WARNING* – the video contains foul language. But not too bad and let’s face it, much of it is what we are all saying in our head. But Not Safe for Children Viewing.
Teamwork from Jackass is a fantastic and funny way to talk about how the group operates and what is the #1 challenge to the team:
How do we REALLY operate? So often individual goals do not match up with team goals. Or team members must depend upon one another but let each other down, many times unintentionally, and sometimes blatantly – like in the video – or in subtle ways.
This short funny video is a GREAT conversation starter to talk about these difficult issues/barriers that are *preventing* a team from being a team. Helping remove these barriers is one of the best characteristics of a great leader.
*WARNING* – there is foul language in the video. But it IS authentic. And if you think your people are not saying these words in your head, you are wrong.
What do we actually do?
- Show the group this video.
- Create a dialogue with the group with the questions provided.
- Wrap it up with some new rules of engagement.
Fantastic ROI on your workout
This workout will bring up great conversation and dialogue about how the group will operate better. If the identified improvements are used, after the workout, the time spent will be HUGE and will keep giving back every single day.
There is vocabulary that can be used long-term for team culture as well, which helps reinforce the workout for a LONG time to come!
