In this new installment, we’re sharing with you a new addition for your at-work playlist every week. These are some of our favorite songs that speak to us; they have a meaningful and relevant message to what we do and believe is important here at TeamBonding, or simply just get us pumped up and motivated when we need that extra boost.
Motivation & Team Building With Music
We have a theory that music can influence your mood, which in turn can influence your actions and the outcome of those actions. Music can inspire you to think differently; it can evoke emotions or thoughts, and promote creativity. On an individual level, music can give you the motivation to get up and get something done, or take charge – and on a collaborative level, it can make team building more effective.
So check us out every Monday for our song of the week – we know you could use that extra little push on a Monday morning, anyway!
Perhaps one of the more obvious song choices here is this one – we’re sure you’re familiar with the Fab Four and one of their most famous songs. The simple lyrics and catchy beat make for a track that’s bound to get stuck in your head – “I get by with a little help from my friends!” How do you think The Beatles became superstars, anyway!?
John, Paul, George and Ringo knew that working together is the key to success. The Beatles would never have been as virally successful as they were without the different talents and skills that each member brought to the band, with each piece as important as the next. With “a little help from your friends”, you can make large tasks smaller and more manageable. Good luck getting this song out of your head for the rest of the day!

What happens when you find yourself, and your employees in a work rut? Don’t worry, it’s pretty common. That’s why TeamBonding is here! When you don’t have anything new, inspiring, or challenging happening in the workplace, you may find you and your employees in a work rut. Let’s talk about these 4 tips for getting out of a rut at work!
Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
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.
