A great team is key to a high performing company.  Investment in your team, with great coaching, training and feedback is essential.

Brian Scudamore, in this Forbes article, puts forth the idea that team building is the most important investment you will make.  That is high praise for something many owners see as fluff.

All work and no play makes a dull team. Total focus on high performance can lead to burn out, fatigue and turnover.  How do you create balance? Fun? A sense of adventure and connection with your team?  All the while making it purposeful.

Team outings are a great way to create connection inside your team, let them learn about each other as everyday people and reduce workplace stress.

Do you find it a stretch to invest in fun with your team?
