Corporate events and team building in particular is considered to be a means that focuses on the effectiveness of a teamwork and help the superiors manage this effectiveness. Do not try to dispute this thesis. Accept it and try to apply it in your work from now on, whenever you are organizing a team building training or are taking a part in one.
