Team building for PopART Management Team



Cape Town – The PopART Management team of Desmond Tutu TB Centre, University of Stellenbosch has attended an intensive two day team building session at Skilpadvlei Wine Farm near Stellenbosch.  This took place on the 11-12 April, 2013, filled with educational activities, fun and laughter.

The following methods were use, emotional intelligence questionnaire and the Myers-Briggs questionnaire.

Emotional intelligence is viewed as a set of emotion-related abilities that help us effectively make use of emotion-related information in ourselves and others.

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described understandable and useful in people’s lives. If people differ systematically in what they perceive and in how the reach conclusions, then it is only reasonable for them to differ correspondingly in their interests, reactions, values, motivations and skills.

The main objective was to get to know each other better and appreciate the differences between each other. This achievement will reinforce the working relationship and prepare the team for the task lying ahead as they will be heading dynamic teams in the coming Population Effects of Antiretroviral Therapy study trial.
