2017 Week 21: I Survived | Team Building
May 15-21, 2017
There were a lot of things going on at work that made me so nervous this work week. For one, I was asked to give a talk to not one but 2 schools last week, on the same day.
Second, I had to meet with some of the senior leaders for a project that I’m handling. Nerve-wracking but I’m glad that’s over and we’re on to the next steps. Hoping that the next meetings will be easier.
It was our team building last Saturday. We went to Phillip’s Sanctuary in Antipolo, Rizal. The place is big. There were a lot of people but the place is big enough to accommodate a big group.
The good thing about the place is that, there are facilitators to for each team to guide you with the activities. It’s really an opportunity to build rapport with your teammates. But the activities really require physical strength.
We were grouped into 2, 11 members each. We had an ice breaker and whoever wins, gets a 2-minute advantage. Our group lost hehe.
We played about 7 games. Straight. The only breaks we got were when we drank water, waiting for the others to complete the game, or walking to the next game venue. Walang patawad ang facilitator hahaha.
After we completed all the games and scores have been tallied, the facilitator announced the winner. The other group won by less than a minute. However, if they did not have the 2 minutes advantage at the start, we would have been the winners. But that’s fine. It’s the memories, especially the funny ones, that are more important hahaha.
The rest went for swimming after lunch. The others just played cards. There are other activities to do. Some have additional payments. But since we were too tired after all the games, most of us took a nap in the rooms.
Our package was for an overnight stay but some of us went back to Manila in the afternoon, myself included. Which was a good decision because that was really tiring. All my fats were shocked with all the activities yesterday so everything’s uncomfortably aching now. Therefore, I stayed home today and almost did nothing, except for the testing that I’m doing in between this post. Whew.
I don’t have a lot of pictures because I left my phone in the room.
