A functional group will work together through identifying a goal, to finding resources, developing a plan and executing that plan through leadership, patience and good communication to achieve that goal. Problem solving activities help us to watch those dynamics so we can process and move forward with the learning whilst leaving behind what didn’t work.
A good team will use all aspects of communication as a fundamental part of team building. The ability to verbally communicate an idea plus the willingness to actively listen are just part of the complete picture. Body language and mannerisms are also part of the communication within the group The ability to interpret and react to this language is a very useful skill.

Challenges are designed according to the group dynamics. Some groups rise to the physical challenge whereas others may be tested more on the cognitive level. A blend of both physical and mental challenges will produce different levels of emotions which include frustration as a key component that needs to be processed before moving on.
