You may have already known this, but at TeamBonding, we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction. Not only do we want you to be pleased with the current programs we have to offer to your team, but we’re always innovating and mashing up ideas to do more.
The over achievers we are, we offer a variety of programs – from philanthropic to outdoor scavengers, professional development and training to culinary – wait, what?
Did we really say culinary team building programs?
Why, YES we did. What’s so innovative about culinary team building programs? This is no cooking class. Our culinary programs will not only fill your bellies, but we incorporate team building that works into our growing roster of over 20 food based programs.
Since we customize our programs to each of our client’s needs, we take things to the next level by combining a program or two that complement one another well. For example, we’ve recently combined our Winery Team Challenge and Salsa Showdown team building programs for several clients over the summer season. Now that’s a lot of team building.
With our Winery Team Challenge, participants are separated into groups – or wineries – where they are schooled on the history of sangria by a sommelier. They are then sent to a “marketplace” to select their weapons – or flavors – of choice. Similarly, participants of our Salsa Showdown will race against the clock to blend together a winning salsa recipe from scratch. After naming their culinary masterpieces and developing market strategies, teams present their sangria and salsa pairs to the judges.
When it comes to team building, it’s important to think outside of the box. Choose something that will knock your teammates off their feet.
Choose something they will remember. In addition to office achievements, give them something to talk about that will improve team morale and productivity. Bigger, bolder bonds accomplish far more than those formed in cubicles.
The next time you enjoy a sip of sangria and a bite of chips and salsa, I know you’ll be thinking of us! Thinking of hosting a combo-team building program like this one for the present fall season? Why not consider a Wicked Good Chowdah Cook-off and a Cocktail Team Mixer with Flair?
What culinary team building programs would you recommend?
There are many reasons that projects fail. Many challenges are rooted in team participation and engagement.
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…)
There are little things that people do that can cause us to scream in our heads – “Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God, will you stop PLEASE!” – but the annoyances are usually so trivial that no one ever really shares their frustration out loud…at least not until it’s too late to sound rational.

How to become an impactful leader: Throughout history many leaders have inspired us to change the world from Gandhi to Alexander the Great. These particular leaders didn’t leave a mark by just hanging out. They led by taking action and inspiring people to follow them.
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.
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…)
