The culture of team building starts from school and goes up to university through college and other socio-educational institutions.

Prof. Sukanya Ray interacted with student questions like who is most inspiring in student’s life so far and collected different answers such as parents and teacher for their hard work, simplicity, inspiration, devotion and dedication. She also discussed the reason why we fail to build up team. After a good deal of discussion and debate she concluded that there are three essential required for team buildings are Trust, Communication and Conflict. Trust is the foundation on which team can take its course, communication binds the members together and conflicts among the members strengthens the bond.

In the second session there was a healthy interaction with the students about the practical problems that they encounter while building team. Those points are the failures of trusting oneself, trusting other people, lack of interaction, failing to study other groups, fearness to speak being apprehensive about others mockery, inferiority complexion, lack of appreciation, inability to connect with the topic and subject matter.

Finally, she summed up with the effective tips to overcome the hurdles of team building by encouraging both students and faculties to convert the negative points into positive measures. They are acceptable involvement, connection with faculties, lauding, smiling, eye-contacting are the tips for healthy spirit of team building and positive appreciate.
