Are you ready to bite a shark to provide lunch for your tribe like Richard Hatch did in Survivor: Borneo?
The first season out of 26 seasons aired!
Not what you had in mind for your next corporate outing? Good – us neither.
Instead, our Corporate Survivors provides your team with the opportunity to build relationships and form bonds on a tamer, less dramatic level.
While the adventures of the Survivor TV series are thrilling to watch, we figured no one really wanted to eat a bull’s tongue during a team building event.
However, the games and challenges incorporated with Corporate Survivors are still mentally and physically stimulating.
Outdoor Team Building Activities That Work
The Corporate Survivors event is comprised of several different outdoor team building activities like “In the Zone,” “Human Boggle,” “Supplies in the Minefield,” and “Survivor Trivia.” Several obstacle courses are also integrated throughout the day.
“In the Zone” and “Supplies in the Minefield” will get your team to work together physically AND strategically. As you work your way to the goal of each activity, your minds will be put together and sweat may start to form under your brow.
The goal for each team is to rack up the highest number of points through event victories. The team with the highest points at the end of the event will be crowned “Survivors.”
Although the friendly competitive element of the events may cause small banter between teams, all is fun in Corporate Survivor.
A representative and past Corporate Survivors participant from MetLife certainly agrees:
“A good time was had by all. Larry and his team of facilitators did a great job. I thank everyone from TeamBonding for helping make our Metlife Team Appreciation Day a success.”

Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork. The more collaboration your projects require the more assertive and intentional your communication should be. Every member of the team needs to take the initiative to communicate. When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively to improve teamwork. (more…)
There are little things that people do that can cause us to scream in our heads – “Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God, will you stop PLEASE!” – but the annoyances are usually so trivial that no one ever really shares their frustration out loud…at least not until it’s too late to sound rational.

Turnover Formula: Employee turnover is the percentage of workers who leave your organization, the employment relationship ends and they are replaced by someone new. Attrition is different. This generally refers to the end of the employment relationship due to retirement or job elimination or employee death. When attrition occurs, the position is not filled with a new employee.
In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.
As summer time ticks away the stores have gone from seasonal sections of gardening and outdoor to school supplies.
