For avid readers of Harry Potter, they will know it is about the life of a wizard and his two closest friends as they try to defeat the powerful and evil wizard Voldemort. I will not go into any more details about the books and storylines themselves. But rather I want to explore the relationships between the three main characters. We are with these three characters from the ages of 11 up to 17 years old. And like any children of that age they have to go through the normal growing up issues.
Although these three close friends did have arguments and fall out, eventually they would always come back together and be friends once again, and stronger for it. The reason their friendship works is that they are not all clones of one another, rather they have very different and complimentary strengths and combined they make a great team.
We can all learn a lot from Harry, Ron and Hermione. We might not always get on with the people we work with, but it does not mean that we will not make a good team. Sometimes you just need to take a step back to see how you compliment one another and then work towards your strengths together. It will help you be a sucessful team. And if you are struggling to identify those strengths and how to work together, then team building events are an excellent way to realise the team’s potential.
