Have you participated in a ropes course teambuilding event?
Most ropes course experiences are advertised as a way to help teams become more effective. A ropes course experience is most likely to help a team when it is part of a larger, integrated training plan. Unfortunately, many teams think a one-day ropes course experience is going to solve all their problems. The one-day ropes course experience becomes another mirage (read more about the training mirage HERE).
Ropes course experiences are a tool - - neither good nor bad. It's all in how you use the tool. Unfortunately, too many people have participated in ropes course experiences that are a joke which is why the video below hits home for too many people.
