Yesterday, Germany won 7: 1 against Brazil. A historic moment. And while some are still completely fond of the joy, the others find something to complain about. But how important are such events for team building and feeling?

From criticism to enthusiasm

Overview

Now I am not a big football fan and I have completely ignored the World Cup this year, which is already seen from the fact that I was already asleep, when I was awakened by incredible noise (I believe it was the Berlin Fanmaile and a gigantic fireworks).

It was only then that I realized that Germany was not only playing against Brazil, but had already scored four goals in a few minutes. From then on I fevered to the last minute and I am still very enthusiastic today.

Eerie group dynamics?

Overview

And although, although I am rather critical of such events, it does not take me so seriously, and the resulting group dynamics is rather eerie. Also with the France game I have seen pictures of the German flag on the Eifelturm with some mixed feelings.

The fact that I am not alone with this attitude, then showed at once also a few tweets and Facebook entries: some reminded of the escalated situation in Israel, the others were annoyed with people who sing the national anthem on the street.

The glass is always half empty

Overview

Already shortly after the match, Oliver Kahn commented on the ZDF that you could have won even higher and one day after the game already individual players are criticized. The famous, softer glass.

Others were annoyed with the miseries, and they did not want to be spoiled by negative voices.

A connecting reason for joy

Overview

Now, historically, the Germans have a problem with nationalism and group dynamics, maybe that's just fine. On the other hand, the joy of such events is probably also deeply human. And last but not least, it shows how team building and the cohesion of groups eg in Company function:

A team needs a common, connecting reason to enjoy. Often this also works through playful demarcation to other groups.

Competitions as a teambuilding measure

Overview

Teambuilding measures are therefore not often used for competitions, as I have just learned at a weekend in Switzerland.

In this way, we create a sense of being able to achieve the highest possible performance of teams. Members need to know what they have. In the case of the World Cup, this is just fun and joy.

What do I get from that?

Overview

I think this aspect is often forgotten when complaining about lack of community or lack of cohesion in groups, teams or society:

What else than the motivvation for a common, higher goal to fight and the joy of a common event or a jointly achieved goal should motivate individual team members, their own interests in the team also times to put back and for the common cause?

The kit that holds the team together

Overview

Conversely, critics may certainly be right when they complain about "bread and games" - and that in general frenzy of joy laws in the Bundestag are pushed through, which would never be so enforceable.

However, such a kit is perhaps just necessary to keep teams and society together. What does your opinion look like?
