What do you hate spending money on? Hopefully not books with over 1000 questions designed to bring your team, tribe, or group closer together. Through years of asking questions to his own teams, author Jeffrey T. Cook discovered that questions—asked in a group setting—create an opportunity for the group to experience the answer of a teammate. Those shared stories, over time, lead to teams that bond like GLUE. Continued “question experiences” result in improved team cohesiveness, deeper understanding of their teammates, and a bonding shared over similar experiences.
Using GLUE as a metaphor, these questions are categorized in levels from very basic (What was your favorite childhood toy?) to very deep (Are there any relatives or siblings you no longer talk to?). Ask the question and experience the answer!
