Video Description

Team building experts Mary and David Sherwin found that one of the most common reasons teams struggle in the workplace is that they have a fundamental communication disconnect. So they developed a simple team building exercise that enables employees to get on the same page before starting new projects. It’s called Teamwords and it’s helping businesses tackle communication challenges head on.
