Keeping your team focused and motivated is a challenge all leaders face. At Perdoo, we often share team building quotes that provide interesting insights or fresh new views on the common challenges we face every day at work.
We’ll usually share these through our team Slack channel. Sometimes they’re fun, others are thought-provoking. Now that we’ve amassed quite a collection, we thought we’d share them with you as text and images. We hope they raise a smile and cause pause for thought.
