Which key factors contribute to workplace team building?  

"The greatest things are accomplished by individual people, not by committees or companies."
Team Building Quote from Alfred Motapert (1906-)

A frequently overlooked factor when setting out to engagne in corporate team building activities is the motivation of each individual team member. Leadership, camaraderie, team building goals, and environmental conditions all play a role, but the individuals' hopes, desires, and dreams prove to be the greatest factor when it comes to workplace team building. Team building quotes can help to increase that individual motivation.

How can a team of individuals achieve team building excellence?  

Jerry Useem, from Fortune Magazine in his June, 1 2006 article "How To Build a Great Team" points out that, "You can't control other people's behavior, but you can control your own. This means that there is an "I" in team after all."  The dynamic of coming together to work with other people can have certain motivating elements, but motivation for team building resides within oneself. If one depends on another as their source of motivation, the motivation eventually ends.

"If facts are the seeds that later produce knowledge and wisdom, then the emotions and the impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow."  Quote by Rachel Carson (May 27, 1907 – April 14, 1964) Presidential Medal of Freedom winner

Each team building member must clearly understand the goals for the team and that working together is critical, but the overarching focus of workplace team building activities and improving productivity should be on motivating each individual.
