Our virtual team buildings range from pure fun to brain-teasing challenges in the form of puzzles, riddles, (photo and video) assignments and are usually played in teams of 5 to 6 people.
A flock of sheep and their shepherd are often a beautiful metaphor of how a team functions. Walk after sheep and they run away. Sometimes as the boss of your team you also have the feeling that you do not reach your employees, that they run away from the tasks you want them to perform. However, a correct approach can ensure that you get the sheep (or your employees) where you want them.
Discover which type of functional leadership (leadersheep?) suits your team best by sheep herding. Am I better a dominant shepherd? A connector? A watchman? A predator? And how do I deal with the black sheep in my team?
