Teamgel’s Inspiration

According to Richard Feynman, all science starts off with a guess that we strive to (dis)prove empirically. If experience agrees with the guess, it’s RIGHT. If not, it’s WRONG. THAT’S IT! Here’s the fundamental assumption Teamgel makes when answering the question “How does one make team work work?”


First, create a SHARED BOND amongst the team members. This is the foundation of team motivation. Teamgel uses the LEGO® SERIOUS FUN methodology to achieve a Shared Bond.

Next, lead the team members to reach committed consensus (a SHARED POINT of VIEW). This is their being jointly motivated to achieve agreed goals, AND it’s INTRINSIC MOTIVATION we’re talking about.. Teamgel uses the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® METHODOLOGY to make team decisions, solve team problems, and generate innovative and creative ideas.

The result will be a heightened propensity to take SHARED ACTION. THAT’S TEAM WORK WORKING!
