你是一個有團隊精神的人嗎?

We hear a lot about team building these days. Team-building gurus are hired by some corporations to lecture us on how to work more effectively with each other. And they organise awaydays - a time employees spend together away from their usual workplace.

這些日子以來,我們聽了不少關于團建的事。部分公司請來一些團建權威進行演講,教大家如何相互提高工作效率。而且,團建活動一般安排在休息日——也就是職員們能一起離開平常工作地點的時候。

Here in the UK, employees can take part in activities such as Zombie boot camps where military instructors train you how to fight walking 'dead people'. For the brainier office workers amongst us there are crime investigations modelled on popular TV dramas like Sherlock Holmes and CSI.

在英國,職員們可以選擇諸如僵尸訓練營這一類活動,教官會訓練大家如何打敗那些“行尸走肉”。而對于其中聰明的上班族們來說,可供選擇的有模仿諸如夏洛克、福爾摩斯和CSI這類流行電視劇的犯罪調查項目。

Stressed-out city workers might have ukulele lessons made available to them. Why is that a good team-building exercise? Ukulele teacher Lorraine Bow says: "The fact that they can play a musical instrument within an hour is quite a fulfilling thing, really. It's not competitive - it's quite easy to do and a bit less intimidating than a guitar…"

不堪重負的市政府工作人員則可以選擇尤克里里琴課程。為什么說這項活動適于團建呢?尤克里里琴教練羅琳·鮑表示:“他們能彈奏一小時以內的樂器其實是很有成就感的,真的是這樣。他們不需要和別人比——很容易就能做到,而且比吉他要更容易上手一些。”

Actually, a horse might be a bit more intimidating than an instrument. The animals are used by a company in Abu Dhabi which teaches leadership through horse training. Basically, you have to go in a yard with a horse and persuade it that you're the boss by using body language.

實際上,騎馬可能相比彈樂器而言要困難一些。阿布扎比的一家公司就通過教馴馬而提升領導能力的服務。參訓者主要是把馬牽到院子里,并用身體語言說服它服從自己。

Kelly Eide, co-founder of True Leadership, says: "The horses don't care if your hair is purple, if you're a man or a woman, if you're old or young... It transcends all of those cultural boundaries - age, gender, religion, tradition etc. - so that's a perfect fit. And in an organization where you really need groups of people to gel, who come from backgrounds which have no common norms, you can teach that most efficiently with a horse."

True Leadership公司的聯合創始人凱利艾德表示:“馬兒可不管你是否染了一頭紫色的頭發,也不管你是男士還是女士,亦或是年輕還是年邁...它超越了所有的這些文化界限——年齡,性別,宗教信仰,傳統習俗等等——所以選擇馬兒是最合適不過的了。而當你真的想要讓一群來自不同文化背景地區的人相互配合,馴馬就是最行之有效的方式了。”

And the horse feels instinctively whether or not you are a natural leader. So if after you've done a good presentation your boss offers you a carrot, you'll know where he might have learnt it from.

馬兒也會憑感覺識別你是不是他天生的主人。所以如果下次你表現良好而被獎勵一根胡蘿卜時,你就能知道你的老板是從哪學來的這一套了。
