A team bonding event will certainly encourage guests to get to know each other and break down barriers. In many cases this will not be enough to create a better team. There may be deep rooted issues that need a more focused approach.

We see many groups each year who are looking for a 'Team Building Magic Wand' that will cure all of the problems a team has.
