In this series of articles, we take five minutes to chat with a member of the TeamBonding team so you can get an idea of what sort of people we are.
In this installment we talked to Wendy, our Meeting Planner, about her New England home, her bucket list, and her best decision made thus far.
What 3 words best describe you?
Creative, Funky, Worldly.
Please describe your house in New England:
I live in a house built in 1776. I love it! Years back I was up in Vermont with a friend and she was telling me how much she loved her house. I thought ‘I want to LOVE my house!’ My husband and I immediately put our house on the market and bought an old house that had been completely redone. It’s warm, charming and definitely a house we proudly call home.
What’s still on your bucket list?
To visit the Sticks factory in Des Moines, Iowa. My entire house is filled with Sticks pieces; a grandfather clock, kitchen table, end table, mirrors, trunk, lamps & more I’m sure! Still on the list is a Sticks headboard.
What’s some fun luck you’ve had?
I scratched a $20,000 lottery ticket!
What’s one of the best decisions you’ve made?
Marrying the Owner of TeamBonding and being a part of the business’ success.

As a leader in your organization, you’re likely always looking for innovative ways to strengthen employee relationships. Creating a strong workplace culture that encourages teamwork is essential for increasing productivity and improving employee engagement. However, your workforce might not always see eye to eye with leadership when it comes to team building. Some employees may feel it’s nothing more than a chore while others might think that team building will not solve the underlying issues that are affecting workplace relationships. It may lead them to really question “does team building work”?
It’s easy… right? You just need to find the right people with the right skills, put them in a room together, and you have a well-oiled team.
