Have you heard the buzz? Or, shall we say… bark?
TeamBonding has added a brand new philanthropic team building event to our roster – Paws for a Cause!
The statistics on homeless animals are sobering, but this program will have your team laughing and having a good time as they compete in building much needed items like dog beds, cat scratch pads and toys for local animal shelters and rescue organizations. With several severe weather incidences in recent history, such as Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and the many tornadoes that have hit the Midwest in recent years, many animals have been displaced from their homes. Animal shelters are almost always at capacity as a result of this unfortunate weather trend.
Paws for a Cause is one way for your group to help our furry friends be as comfortable as possible while they await permanent homes. Whether you are a group of animal lovers, or seasoned event professionals looking for something new in the world of team building, this is an innovative philanthropic program that you won’t want to miss!
In fact, we’ve already teamed up with a great organization in the Boston area to help them in their animal rescue efforts – Black Cat Rescue. In a recent Wordless Wednesday post we told you that black cats are half as likely to be adopted as other cats. Well, Black Cat Rescue is working to make that a thing of the past, and TeamBonding is looking forward to being able to help them as well as other organizations in their work.
Are you a Boston area business interested in a philanthropic team building event? If so, please consider Paws for a Cause so we can get these deserving felines some creature comforts!
Not from Boston? That’s still purrrfect. We’ll set you up to donate to a local area shelter or national relief effort.
The corporate world is experiencing a massive shift. A new generation is entering the workforce, many are retiring, and the formula for leadership is being re-invented. Dictatorships are giving way to collective organizational vision creation. Our titles, age, or departmental role do not define us. Focus is shifting from individual acceleration to purpose-driven teamwork. (more…)
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…)
We learn early in our lives that it’s better to win, and in order to win, we need to be competitive.
“Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision.”- Henry Kissinger In order to lead, sometimes it is necessary to inspire. Leaders invoke the passion and drive into their team in order for hard work to be done. Team bonding quotes have the ability to encourage, but they also allow us to remember the great leaders of the past.
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.

Giving back to our communities makes you feel good, assists in making you more socially aware and helps you bond with your colleagues as you team up to help those in need. Charity is beneficial for both humanity and business for many reasons. When you participate in Corporate Social Responsibility team building activities, you get the best of both worlds.
