In this series of articles we take five minutes to chat with a member of the TeamBonding team so you can get an idea of the sort of people we are. In this installment, we talk with our Director of Facilitator Training, Paul Giroux. We sat down with him for five minutes to learn about everything from his favorite memory to the most important thing in life (family).
How long have you been with TeamBonding?
What is your most memorable TeamBonding experience?
I have so many memories, but recently I was able to facilitate and be part of the donation to Give Kids the World in Orlando. I was just amazed by their work and the powerful donation.
What do you do in your free time?
Family, family, family and the Patriots of course!
What is your favorite place in the world to be?
My two favorite places are HOME as I travel a lot, but my wife and I love to visit Jamaica!
What is the #1 most played song on your iPod?
Anything by Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band
What is your favorite food? (If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?)
Describe yourself in three words:
Passionate, energetic, loving.
The most important thing in life is:
Something people may not know about you:
Outside of work, I am mostly quiet.
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!
It’s one thing to create an atmosphere of trust and a feeling of camaraderie between employees when they’re all in the same building 40 or so hours a week.
Know each other as people, not just professionals. We’re all so much more than our job titles. We have interests that may have drawn each of us to our roles and help us excel within them. There are easy team building icebreaker activities for work that will help you and your team bond and get to know each other as more than just your role in the office. (more…)
