Breaking Bread London

Buiding Teams and Making Bread in London

For thousands of years, the head of the table has broken bread to signal the commencement of a meal.  Celebration, or feasting, is an important practice for high performing teams.  Eating together is still regarded, across all cultures, as one of the best ways to recognise team success.  This activity explores the similarities between building teams and making bread.
