Why team building through rowing?

Rowing is a unique and intense marriage of strength, finesse, and teamwork (all good skills to have in your job). It is the ultimate team sport. If you put seven expert rowers in a boat with one bad rower, the boat won’t go fast. Working together to balance the boat is similar to working together in your job. If the boat is tippy, and leans too heavily to your side, you’re in trouble; if you lift your hands to take the boat off your side too drastically and push all the weight to the other side, your boatmates are in trouble and may do the same, resulting in a lot of pushing (and sore shoulders). The motto is, and has to be: How does every player lift this boat (project, challenge, business unit) to the precise degree that it is level and moving forward? Only by working together in a meticulous and highly-refined way can we find the balance. Rowing teaches the life lesson of hard work. You reap what you sow.
