Set the expectations of the event for the venue staff, so they don’t panic at all the activity and potential noise.
Some Team Building events can get pretty crazy (by design, because that makes them more fun… and more effective!) But don’t scare the venue staff when they see your team running around being crazy.
Whether you are planning an indoor event, or you’re just securing space as a back-up plan, make sure the venue is aware of the type of event you’re holding. They might even add to the fun!
“None of us is as smart as all of us.” – Ken Blanchard
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.

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.
Imagine if you will, that it’s 2006 again. The housing bubble has just burst, and the US economy is teetering on the brink of what will end up being the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression. People are scared for the futures of their companies, and are cutting corners at every possible turn. No one is very eager to spend money on team building.
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 corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs!
Corporate Social Responsibility: Corporate Social Responsibility refers to the idea that a company or corporation has a moral obligation to give back to their community. Some companies are more aware than others when it comes to the importance of corporate social responsibility. One of the most notable is Haagen-Dazs, an ice cream company that prides themselves on using all-natural ingredients. What then makes for an effective CSR program?
Team building games and ice breaker activities for adults can keep your team bonded throughout the year. Get started with this simple DIY team building exercise. EXERCISE GOAL: Participants will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and those around them through ice breaker activities. (more…)
I’m Joyce Ngo – public relations enthusiast, student, and currently TeamBonding marketing intern. This summer as part of my internship I will be focusing on social media and bringing the experience of the events and programs we do to the mass public from my perspective. You’ll get a behind the scenes view of what happens before the event and the preparation that goes into it. I’ll be posting blog posts about my observations and experience at each event. Basically, you’ll get to see what Joyce the Intern sees, no fluff. This time I went to a Team Teddy Rescue Bear.
