Teams In Trouble # 3: A Training Nightmare And What To Do About It

Is This Teamwork?

It's teamwork if you think in terms of having fun and building community!

My six year old son loves to hit a pinata but why should he have all the fun?  I decided to make the adult version and invented "Full Contact Pinata".

I bought a large pinata and filled it with apples, oranges and other heavy semi-rotting fruit.  I then built a large medieval looking contraption to swing the pinata (it's important to get the pinata swinging wildly).  Finally, you've got to find a volunteer willing to put on helmet and mask and take on the pinata.

Whenever I watch the video clip (see below) I always laugh. 

If you're wondering, I have invented some more practical games.  You can see them here.
