Stuck in a slump? Not accomplishing as much as you want to be? Need help boosting your own or your team’s productivity? Well, we’ve got a solution for you! Introducing the BOND Productivity Challenge!
We’ve broken your overall productivity down into four categories: Big picture, Organization, Networking, and Daily tasks. Point values are assigned to each task in a category, with higher value items in the Big picture category and lower points in the Daily tasks. Using this BOND method, you’ll be able to evaluate the areas of work where you personally could use improvement, and work to strength your overall productivity.
For the individual component of this challenge, we’re providing you with an individual productivity tracking sheet. With this tool, you’ll be able to input the point value for each productivity item as you complete the challenge. It will calculate your weekly total in each category, over all, and allow you to track your daily average for each week.
If your average productivity on week one was 25 points a day, then in the following week try to average 30 points a day. This will result in an increase in over-all productivity, and also allow you to start developing some good habits.
While this challenge has benefits to being done individually, the real fun comes from making it a competition. To that end, we’re also including a team score chart which will allow you to tract the progress of everyone in your office. To make the competition fairer for part-timers, we suggestion you track everyone’s daily average productivity. That way it’s what you get done while you’re in the office that counts, not how often you’re there.
How you determine the winner of this challenge is up to you! You can total up each person’s daily average productivity, to recognize the person who accomplished the most over the course of the month. Or you can compare each person’s first and last week’s daily productivity, to determine who improved the most during the challenge. Sweeten the pot with a prize such as a gift card or a small cash buy-in from all participants.
One of the most crucial factors in the success of your business is how well your team works together. Corporate team building can be an effective and transformative strategy for helping business executives and their employees to feel more invested in their careers and each other.
How does the power of play influence success at work? Many people are working longer and harder, thinking that this will solve the problem of an ever-increasing workload. But they are still falling behind, becoming chronically overwhelmed, and burning out. Work is where we spend much of our time. That is why it is especially important for us to play during work. Without some recreation, our work suffers. Success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time you work. It depends on upon the quality of your work. And the quality of your work is highly dependent on your well-being.
How to embrace team collaboration? For an organization to run smoothly and meet its goals, it is important to foster a work environment that supports collaboration amongst colleagues. Unfortunately for most organizations, this does not occur naturally, and thus you must make an effort and take steps to help build and sustain a cooperative work environment.
A Company Culture One of the most important aspects of any successful organization is to have a clearly defined company culture. Office culture can influence and be influenced by many things including the type of communication within an organization, the types of events you hold for your employees, and the standards you hold your employees, too.

We learn early in our lives that it’s better to win, and in order to win, we need to be competitive.
In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
Be a good leader: Pay attention! Complacency at work leads to less innovation, less trust and less loyalty within your organization. Are you encouraging change? Do you reward failure? Is turnover on the rise? Are you making decisions based on intuition and information? Or, only to relieve a sense of anxiety? (more…)
