“I once worked in a team that was having trouble getting along, so they brought in a consultant. First activity? We had to go around the room and say what we didn’t like about each other. We might have also had to add what we did like, but I only remember the criticisms and people bursting into tears. We went from simply not being able to work together to actively disliking each other in about 30 minutes. Then we ate boxed lunch and ended the day by filling out personality tests.”
