TeamBonding is now working with the Do Good Bus to bring more goodwill to an already diverse and wide selection of charitable team building programs.
The Do Good Bus was created to bring people together to do charitable work and to help their community. After an 11,000 mile journey around the United States this bus along with the help of 750 volunteers was able to help 25 different causes. Teamwork and altruism are the heart of this organization and we are proud to be able to bring this experience to our clients as a charitable team building program.
Who hasn’t been to a corporate event or participated in “team building” activities where you’re meant to be a team, but everything seems forced and awkward? Where there was a lot of sighing, eye rolling, and plain old resistance to the idea of working together? Over twenty years ago, TeamBonding started with a simple question: how can we facilitate true, authentic bonds between members of corporate teams?
Make an Impact, Give Back Locally
We are proud of our company culture at Teambonding and we understand you’re proud of your culture as well. For each Do Good Bus by TeamBonding ride, we work closely with your team to incorporate your core values and company mission. We build in time to research your company and your employees to find activities that will be best for your group all while giving back.
When asked about the Do Good Bus by TeamBonding, Creator of Opportunities – David Goldstein – said:
“I have been working on new programs all year and sometimes one comes along that is so perfect we have to get involved. That is how I see the Do Good Bus. We have many charitable programs, but this is different, this brings us and our clients out into the world, outside the hotel ballroom to really get our hands dirty and do some good. The idea that it can pick up the client at their office, feed them, entertain them, do some good, build their team and bring them back 5 hours later- had to do this.”
That about sums it up. Get on the bus now!
What is your favorite charitable team building program? Where would you like to bring your team on the Do Good Bus by TeamBonding?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
We have an exciting year of trade shows lined up! From ice sculpting demonstrations to battling with bows & arrows, our team is ready to bring the fun to these events across the country. Will you be in attendance at any of these shows?! If so, be sure to swing by our booth and say hello!
When it’s summer time, head outside to enjoy the rays and blue skies. DYI (Do it yourself) outdoor team building is a great way to learn new activities while surrounded by fun company and building strong bonds.
Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork. The more collaboration your projects require the more assertive and intentional your communication should be. Every member of the team needs to take the initiative to communicate. When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively in order to work effectively. (more…)
