Group work is a powerful way to strengthen each individual’s confidence and communications and business building skills. Exchanging experiences (good and bad) is an effective way to learn what works and what doesn’t. It’s also a great way to build trust within a team to create a supportive and positive environment conducive to meeting goals in a competitive business environment.
