This seems to be a constant struggle with corporate groups. THe balance of the primary contact having their aganda although they are so involved that they may not and usually do not clearly see the what the team will benfit the most from. I have had several groups ask the same thing. The statment of our people like to have information to go home with, and the contact feels that a needs assement is a waste of time because they know what the team building session is supposed to accomplish. I cannot help but feel that the Team building and corporate training community are in some part responsible for this. THe sales approach of this actiivty does x and will help your people achieve x, removes the experiential concept and makes the traning prescriptive. With a needs assement the faciliator is able to dig deeper, although the facilitator must also be able, and knowledgeable to decifer or translate the needs assment to meet the groups needs.
