COACHING TIP: TEAM-BUILDING

by Dr. Carol Renaud Gaffney
Copyright Carol R. Gaffney, Ph.D. 1996


Q. Is it true that the only thing a family that works together gets is splinters under their nails?

A. I hope not!

Jesting aside, our dishwasher blew up (literally had fire flaming from the front door about 3 months ago). I'm not sure why we haven't fixed it or replaced it, but we haven't and at this point I'm not inclined to (except that we want to sell our house and the new owners will probably want a working unit.) Besides having very clean hands, we have spent more time together than usual and we each are taking some responsibility for getting the job done.

This may seem far-fetched for many families but please consider how the busyness of the day does more to separate us than join us together. I'm calling for a new dinner and dishes approach to family living: Plan meals, share them (without the television and around a table), and work together to clean up.
