We all know trust in a team is important, but how can we build it?

Teams that get out of their comfort zones together increase what Jonathan Haidt refers to as their “group’ishness”. That is, they come together as a group and build up their trust for one another.

In this session we will play a series of improv exercises that you can use with your teams to get to know each other more. In addition you’ll also learn how these exercises work towards building up the trust and group’ishness of your teams.
