Complete your next company dinner with sweet sangria history and some tasty competition! Did you know that the US recently surpassed France as the world’s top wine consumer? Foster creativity, celebrate teamwork and excite your taste buds with one of our best culinary team building events, the Winery Team Challenge.
This savory team bonding event kicks off with a brief, interactive intro to the history of wine, given by our knowledgeable sommelier. Your team will then be put to the test during an exciting game of sangria trivia! The challenge heats up when participants are divided into separate teams, where they will compete to create and market a tasteful winery.
Before creating their own blends, each group will visit the ‘marketplace’ where they will stock up on all necessary ingredients. Once teams have perfected their fruity sangria, they are challenged to add an artistic touch by creating winery logos and decorating their tables and aprons. They’ll also write and perform a jingle or commercial to enthusiastically sell their product to the judges.
After the final challenge, The Sangria Taste Test Contest, winners of each contest are announced with great anticipation. Teams receive awards in three categories: the winner of the Sangria Trivia Contest, the Best Marketing Campaign and Best Tasting Sangria!

The corporate world is experiencing a massive shift. A new generation is entering the workforce, many are retiring, and the formula for leadership is being re-invented. Dictatorships are giving way to collective organizational vision creation. Our titles, age, or departmental role do not define us. Focus is shifting from individual acceleration to purpose-driven teamwork. (more…)
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 to improve teamwork. (more…)
We learn early in our lives that it’s better to win, and in order to win, we need to be competitive.
“Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision.”- Henry Kissinger In order to lead, sometimes it is necessary to inspire. Leaders invoke the passion and drive into their team in order for hard work to be done. Team bonding quotes have the ability to encourage, but they also allow us to remember the great leaders of the past.
Turnover Formula: Employee turnover is the percentage of workers who leave your organization, the employment relationship ends and they are replaced by someone new. Attrition is different. This generally refers to the end of the employment relationship due to retirement or job elimination or employee death. When attrition occurs, the position is not filled with a new employee.
Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.
As summer time ticks away the stores have gone from seasonal sections of gardening and outdoor to school supplies.
