The Nine building blocks of any meeting or team building
In the previous article, we shared the different types of gaps an event can help you close. Here, we are going deeper into how exactly you will approach said gaps. For example, the event’s main goal (gap) might be a Culture gap. The next question is, what exactly do we achieve? Measure the culture? Align people around a new culture? Educate people on culture? Brainstorm ideas? Depending on our research, we have narrowed nine building blocks of every event that might help you move closer to closing the gap.
The chart on the right shows how long, in our experience, it takes for each building block to be accomplished. Note, however, that times vary significantly by group size and complexity.
