    These cunning and fun, little tasks put a variety of team working skills to the test. Leadership, communication, planning and support are all required in order to successfully complete each task. As ever with teamwork, planning and talking about it is all very well - but it is the execution of the task that matters. The theory that Joe & Shelia were going to hold on to that rope was all well and good in the planning, but the true test is the 'doing'. You try to remind yourself just which team member it was that spoke up about the rope being too heavy to hold for that long - as your prize slowly sinks in to the river.

    It's all about learning by doing and a great way to test out existing team skills or to accelerate new teams getting to know each other. After all, the person who never made a mistake never made anything.
