Like a shark, in the business world, you must constantly be moving to stay alive. What’s next? Bigger? Better? And, like the television show, Shark Tank, this activity moves your group towards answers to those questions!
Laugh, Learn & Lift Your Team
Based on the hit TV show Shark Tank, now everyone in your group can try their hands at product development, process improvement or marketing. The focus of our Shark Tank-style team building program may be on fun, but the lessons in life, teamwork, and business are quite real. What’s next? Bigger? Better? And, like the television show, Shark Tank, this team building activity moves your group towards answers to those questions! Teams must put as much thought into their presentation as their invention, to wow the judges. As with all TeamBonding programs, the competition is spirited but friendly.
Following a lighthearted icebreaker, teams put their heads together to create either a new product or feature your company might actually sell, a new process to help boost your bottom line or a new marketing strategy/ad campaign. After developing their big concept, each of the Shark Teams pitches it to a board of Sharks. These can be company execs, local charity representatives or your TeamBonding facilitators. The larger group also weighs in via a cool electronic voting system. Lively and engaging, and you just might end up with an idea worth pursuing.
The Shark Teams program can be held in your office building, a ballroom or conference room. 20 sq. feet per participant is a good guideline.
- Creative thinking
- Time management
- Presentation skills
- Planning and delegation
Working with the client, TeamBonding will narrow the field in which these innovations will be based. There are three possible realms for the context of these innovations:
Teams will develop ideas for use in their own company.
TeamBonding can work with the client to identify a charity before the program, which would be a good match for a partnership and a donation.
In this model, teams will be unlimited in their ideas.
The team building went well. The Sharks all enjoyed the very creative pitches made by the various teams.
Amazing! The event was a HUGE success! Everything was perfect – the participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I can’t say enough about how well it went. The word is already flying around the office about the success of the program and we already have another group thinking about using this program for an event of their own!
WOW! What an incredible time we had with Team Bonding last week at our All Hands event! Your team was phenomenal, and with the leadership and charisma of Scott, pulled off keeping the attentions of a very lively crowd!
I have to say Kevin was absolutely OUTSTANDING. He is truly gifted in his presentation, engagement of the people, he’s funny and everyone just raved over him—top notch!
It was a great time. I have only received positive feedback from my team which is a rare thing. Please let Stuart know we loved it.
“Excellent show! The actors were fun and interacted well with your company. We will definitely recommend to others. I enjoyed hearing that co-worker laughter!”
