Press Release Body: Mike Cardus founder of Create-Learning-Team Building asked to
quote about Erie County Government, New York, about the giving of T-Shirts (and polo
shirts) to increase camaraderie and team work amongst county workers. you can read
the quote below;

From the Buffalo NY News;
The shirts are a fine tool for team building, said a "team building facilitator,"
Michael Cardus of the Buffalo consulting firm Create-Learning-Team Building.

"I think itís a good idea, and I think itís a positive step," he said. "But in order
for the workplace to feel greater ownership and pride in their workplace, there must
be things put in place for them to have pride in their work.
"For instance, letís say you have a group of people and you want them to feel
empowered to make decisions. But then the first time that someone makes a decision
that doesnít align with the bossís decision, they are squelched. There must be
correlating cultural shifts," he said.

I believe in incentive based positive reinforcement models - as I mentioned in the
article companies must also change more than their Facade to create camaraderie.
Throwing a Picnic or having the team wear matching shirts is a start - you must work
on the inside, the core, to cause a healthy team work shift. Additionally if someone
is already unhappy with their job it is highly un-likely that shirts or a picnic are
going to solve these individuals issues.
The simple solution is creating an environment of Transparency (speak the truth and
share information) as well as measurable and achievable goals for team members to
understand where they stand and what they are driving towards.
