Team Building

In about 10 minutes I will be doing a bunch of improv warm-ups and games at Harley. Joey Greene is in town today from Michigan to run a Team Building Workshop for the admin. group at my company.
Our group has had some issues with getting along, communicating etc. When HR wanted to do some team building exercises or something to help out, I figured that rather than let the business go to someone else, we could do it. Obviously I couldn't run the workshop from the inside and besides not being able to take off work it would be a little strange to have Corey do it. So... in stepped Joey.
To be honest, I'm a little nervous. I'm sure it's going to be fine, I definitely trust Joey. It's just always weird when you bring in the talent, show or whatever. Everyone will turn on you if they don't enjoy it. It's a weird mix of women, especially the oldest two, who are the ones that caused problems in the first place. There are definitely other people I'd rather spend 2 hours with. Oh well, it's not a bad way to spend your work morning and it'll be fun. The goal is for us to have a good time, not talk about any issues or anything weird. Plus we get free lunch!
Hopefully this will lead to other opportunities to do workshops either in my company or branch out to others.

Why didn't you hire ComedyCity? They need the money.

Hey! Jared has a point, you know.

no, they're clearly not responsible with their money.

...or with their cast.
With using "they", I don't know if that's accurate or if it's a singular person.

It's worth it for the free lunch. That's the one thing you should NEVER turn down. Unless it's offered to you by a weird guy in a van with no windows.

The workshop went great. They seemed to really like it. I don't think it changed the face of the company or anything, but it was a fun thing for the group to do and if HR wanted a team building thing, this was the best way to do it.

Yeah, as if the rest of us haven't been doing all that too.
