It is possible for you to accomplish your leadership projects alone. But that will be very difficult. You need to tap the talents and skills of others. You need to enlist others to your vision and mission. Teams will multiply your results using least among of efforts.
If you are here because you are looking for a professional team building facilitator, go to the bottom of the page and fill-in the contact form. If you are here because you want to learn more ways on how to build your team, continue reading. I will tell you what I intend to share with you when you subscribe to this website — and show you the links to the articles that I have already published.
Do you have nonteam players? You will learn practical ways to influence them to value teamwork. One good advice is to accept that nonplayers aren’t necessarily bad people. Oftentimes, they have good intentions. You will learn how to speak to them — and leave them okay as a person after your conversation.
Do you have team members who are too busy for teamwork? This is true for many organizations. The closest they have for “team building” is an outing done once a year — of every three years — where they compete against each other. Of course, this is typically an ineffective way of building a team, but this is one that many employees experience. Of course, we all have the same number of hours everyday. Team building isn’t an interruption to daily work. I will show you how to make your team members understand that team building is a strategy to make your work faster for less time. That team building should give us more time for ourselves and our families.
Do you have team members who are laggards and deadwoods? It is disheartening to work hard while others are not, especially if they enjoy the same rewards as the rest of the team. You will learn how to align their actions to the motivations of the team. You will also find simple suggestions on how to manage performance.
Do personality conflicts hinder productivity and high performance among team members? You can manage conflict effectively — and turn conflict into growth opportunities. You will learn how to give feedback and become assertive when communicating with your teammates.
Do you have knowledge hogs? I suggest that you examine your rewards system. In many organizations, rewards systems encourage cheating and in-fighting. I will help you audit your reward system through articles I will write in this website. You watch out for them.
Do you have team members who do not demonstrate a sense to personal accountability? You know that each person is accountable for results. However, in most team building programs I have conducted, the main problems of members are “other members” who do not have sense to personal accountability. The “other members” are always the source of team problems. You will discover here various ways that promote accountability.
Here you will find more ideas, tools and techniques that will help you build teams. Let me give you some examples and decide for yourself if any of these can help you.

There are many things we need to consider when building a team. You cannot accomplish all of them in one day. And you cannot accomplish any of them when all you do every year is hold three-hour team building, divide your team into color groups, and have them compete for mysterious prizes.
I know of many companies who allocate money for prizes because members do not attend when they do not dangle money.
I highly suggest that you subscribe to Every Monday Morning newsletter. You will get leadership ideas many of which I do not publish in this website.
If you are interested to send your leaders to bootcamps, masterclasses, and seminars to enhance their people skills, you can join the mailing lists. The learning programs that I offer are by-invitation only. You’ll get invited if you are in the mailing list — or if you are one of those who’ve been receiving my Letters.
I also consult for organizations who need assistance in team development programs. And I believe you already know that I also train team building facilitators nationwide. When you need my help, you can contact me. You can use the contact form in this website.
P.S. You can come up with team building programs which support your business objectives. Competency-based programs are powerful and many managers fail to experience them.
My name is Jef Menguin. I am professional team building facilitator in the Philippines. I also help organizations implement leadership development programs, improve customer experiences, and solve problems through design thinking.
I have conducted leadership training programs in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, and the Philippines.
