We have monthly Leadership Team meetings at the company I work for and the agenda of the meetings is centered around improving the business and includes topics like: Sales forecast updates, Financial and budget reporting, Leadership success stories, HR updates etc. In other words we try to work on the business and our Leadership skills rather than the day to day tasks. The meetings are held monthly offsite at a local facility, start with a quick lunch and run all afternoon.
This month the Staff decided to not have a "formal" monthly LT meeting but instead planned a "team building event" at an indoor golf/driving range that is about 50 minutes away. From what I understand there will be no business meeting but only a social event that will last from 12-3PM.
My question for discussion is: does that seem appropriate?
I'm not sure I'm comfortable with playing golf while the rest of my team is working.
I would be interested in other peoples opinions.
P.S. This is the first time we have done anything like this since I have been on the team (~3 years).
