You know that feeling you get after a good conference, training session or great speech?
Invigorated and inspired to go forth and do great work!
Unfortunately, as we get back into the rhythms of everyday life, we tend to lose that feeling. Urgency dissipates and we’re left chugging along without much thought.

In this 6 minute TED Talk, Tom Wujec outlines his research on the “marshmallow challenge”. The teambuilding exercise involves one yard of tape, dry spaghetti and a marshmallow. It’s rather simple but his study gives great insight into the nature collaboration.
This is a great way to demonstrate that jockeying for power can hinder teamwork. It also points out that sometimes the best way to see if something will work is to try it, then refine it. If you’re stuck in the planning process, this is a great reminder that we can’t plan every detail and often it’s better not to try.
