Having worked at companies as large as a Fortune 50 and as small as a two-person startup I feel like I have been subjected to a large number of team building exercises. Some will start out with a personality assessment - not a test, as we're taught that we are not taking a personality test that one can pass or fail, but an examination and revelation of individual personality traits. We're then given tools that we need to improve our communication skills, increase productivity, become more helpful, become indoctrinated in company culture and lore, get more motivation, or just get along better with our colleagues. While the core benefit is mostly well-intentioned, the execution can be quite painful. A couple of the more demoralizing team building exercises I have been through include having to cross-dress for a play and being interrogated for 15 minutes on very personal aspects of my life in front of the entire company.
