In this installment we talked to Emily, our new Marketing Associate, about her favorite foods, her bucket list, and more!
How long have you been with TeamBonding?
I’ve been here for about 4 months now, since February 2016.
What do you do with your free time?
Oh, a number of different nerdy things. I collect comics, and do a lot of the stuff that goes along with that. I went to Boston Comic Con last year, and I’m shooting to go to New York Comic Con this coming year. I read a lot, and dabble in writing occasionally, though not with any seriousness.
I watch a lot of TV and movies, and play video games occasionally. I also love theater with a passion, so I try to stay involved in with the theater community as much as I can. Sometimes that means going to see plays, and other times it means actually getting involved with companies, but I love it all.
What is your favorite food?
Definitely pasta. I love all types of pasta, but I have a special soft spot for my family’s traditional red sauce. Growing up, pasta was a must have meal at least once a week in my family. When I’m trying to eat healthy, pasta’s the first thing I crave.
What can’t you live without?
As much as I hate to be a stereotypically millennial, the honest answer is probably my phone. I use it for everything! Calendars for work, keeping in touch with friends and family, reading on the bus or the subway, tracking when my bus is going to arrive, figuring out where I’m going and how to get there…. I could live without a lot of things I use daily, but man, I would have a really hard time getting by without my phone.
Something people may not know about you:
I play baritone horn! I started playing in high school, and played with a community band all through college. I haven’t played for over a year, which is a little sad, but it’s still something I enjoy dong.
What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?
Most of it is travel related, if I’m being honest. I would love to go to Italy with my family. I don’t speak the language, which is a bit intimidating, but my father’s family is from there. It would be amazing to get to explore that part of my cultural heritage with them. I’d also love to go to Ireland some day, though not for any specific reason. It’s just a dream I’ve had since I was a kid. Lastly would probably be getting the chance to work at the Globe Theater and live in London for a year or two.
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.
TeamBonding is re-defining the world of company culture. We know that the key to company growth and positive company organizational culture is to invest in your team through team building. In our 25+ years of experience, it’s not surprising that it’s in our nature, which is ultimately what has defined our success. The Founder, David Goldstein has been actively building his team for years, so it’s no secret he’s got the best team! Not only does David plan activities for his team to enjoy, but he also began a whole engagement committee to toss around ideas for his team to do… and the sky is the limit.

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…)
