When you’re making your New Year’s resolutions, keep in mind what you achieved in the past year, both positives and negatives. The truth is, while we can make as many New Year’s resolutions as we want, they won’t come to fruition if you don’t actually have the motivation and care to.
That’s why this year, I propose that instead of making a bunch of resolutions about losing weight, getting that dream job, or surpassing your sales goal from last year, that you take a step back and do a review of the past year. What’s that? Simple, take a look back at the last year and take note of all the positives and negatives that came from any actions. Take that list and use it as your guide for this next year. Make your resolutions around that pro-con list instead of blindly making resolutions that end up breaking before the year is half over. Use the positives and make sure to incorporate them more into your calendar, both personal and professional. Take notice of the negatives and think about what could’ve gone differently, how to prevent them, and if not then how to mitigate them better if they come up again. Taking the time to gain some perspective on your last year will not only be more beneficial and valuable to yourself professionally, but if you apply this to your work and company, you’ll find that it’s a lot easier to make changes and see improvements from last year than it would be with vague resolutions.
Did you make any resolutions this year? Did you do a review of your past year?
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.
