Are We Having Fun Yet?

Dan McCarthy explores "fun" programs at work. An excerpt:

Silly ice-breakers at meetings or training sessions. Are there still trainers out there that are doing these ridiculous pre-school birthday party games in the name of “loosening up” a group? It’s always amazed me how willing grown adults are usually willing to do anything they are told in a work setting.

I've refused before as I cannot see the point, to incur the anger of the presenter. I was once at a conference and the presenter wanted everybody to put a coffee bean in their shoe over 1500 people, I still have no idea why, he never said why, just indicated at the end, "you'll have to work out the meaning for yourself". Consequently the only thing I remember was the idiot with the coffee bean.
