Looked to see if this was in another forum first but couldn't find anything.
After listening to about 90% of all podcasts I hear mention of "not using off-sites" for this or that. If things are done right, is there any significant need for offsites? Meaning, should a goal be keep business "in house" and leave offsites for strictly fun if anything? Think they are nice and I agree with the whole Teambulding doesn't work per say.
My thought is to pull some of my direct managers off site once a month or quarter to do some development (like implementing manager tools), not team building. The purpose would be an uninterupted envoirnment for immersion or focus. We have conference rooms and offices but interupptions always seem to happen from above and below. These interruptions could be lack of implementing other diciplines. Thank you for your thoughts.
