Team Building Tip: Surprise me! But really, no.

By: Samantha McDuffee   |   March 26, 2013

It may seem like a good idea to surprise your team with a team building exercise, but this is generally a no-no. 

It is much easier to encourage participation, have fun, and enjoy an event when participants are not surprised. That being said, don’t tell them everything about the event, because it will ruin the fun.
