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!

So, you suddenly found yourself managing a remote team? Here you will understand the benefits of virtual team building as we share activity ideas you can implement. Remote work has been on the rise for years, and as COVID-19 is moving more teams online, remote team building is becoming a necessary step for business operations and human resources. It’s also an opportunity to get creative about how your team bonds and has fun in this new space, especially during stressful times.
At TeamBonding, we are experts at mixing work & play to create team building events, both virtually and in-person globally, for businesses looking to positively impact their company culture, employee engagement and retention, on-the-job effectiveness and job satisfaction.
We’ve outlined five steps for starting and managing a remote team with a focus on building culture. No longer a special arrangement for a handful of team members, remote work has become more common than ever. Today, the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed work from home mandates, and many companies need to start and manage remote teams, fast.
In a world rife with distractions and a population more easily sidetracked than ever, it’s becoming more and more difficult for companies to keep their employee morale strong.
With a new year comes new goals and challenges. As a business owner or manager, some of those challenges include figuring out how to increase numbers and maximize efficiency. Most of your success, however, comes down to one thing – improving work performance.
Consider the experience of starting a job from the perspective of your newly hired employees.
