Business Studies Faculty Takes Bridge Construction Team-Building Exercise

Business Studies Department kick-started the new academic year with a Team Building exercise at B101, Engineering Building on September 17, 2015. The “Bridge Construction” is an exercise that creates cohesiveness of a team.

The Team Building exercise was instructed by Dr. Suneel Kumar, lecturer of HR Section, an expert in Organizational Change and Development. The team-building exercise helped foster camaraderie among the participants. The objective of the exercise is primarily to untangle and unlock the boundaries of working as a team. As the HOD, Ms. Moza Al Shehhi, observed that the exercise is geared towards learning how to lead and how to follow. Notably, the participants acknowledged that it was a mentally and physically-challenging session, but it had a positive impact on them.

Dr. Suneel stated during the debriefing session that, “each individual is unique and the participants are diverse. Hence, you expect that along the way, while everyone wants to achieve their goal, each individual has its own way of achieving it”. The session provided a bird’s eye view how tasks are done in the department. Finally, Ms. Moza Al Shehhi, expressed her gratitude to the facilitator, participants and organizer. The activity ended on a high note and expectation with the following words of the HOD, “ in a formal team (organization) such as the Business Studies Department, it is expected that each should contribute to the team, communication plays a vital role; one should listen to the instruction before acting on it.

The Team Building involved 32 Lecturers and was organized by the Staff Professional Development Committee (SPDC).
