Cookery Team building workshop for business
Written by Sharmini   
Turn the 'I's to We - for the betterment of the organization

Cooking is the only profession which arouses all our 5 senses. At any party, complete strangers seem to bind quckly when they talk of their favorite food.

Therefore, having employees prepare meal together or watch a ' live demonstration ' is the perfect way of breaking down barriers with people from work.

Every person is an equal and important member of the team regardless of what role/hierarchy they are in your organization

It allows them to relate to each other and discover each individual's personality in a relaxed atmosphere, which is not always possible at work.
