The environment and global warming have become much-publicized topics over the last several years. Although predictions about global warming and the condition of the environment are not looking bright for the future, there are many reasons to be optimistic. With a little help from each of us, we can change this predicament. That’s why we created Go Green Racing!
This week’s featured program fits into the go green theme for April – AKA Earth Month.
With Go Green Racing, teams will be tasked with creating solar cars from kits provided and building cars from materials used and thrown away everyday by millions of Americans. The solar cars will be put to the test and judged for performance, while the recycled cars will be built for speed! The event concludes with a round robin drag race tournament to determine which car is the fastest. Teams will race against the clock to complete both cars and take home the checkered flag.
The goal of the event is to make a worthy donation to a local school. Although there will be a ’winner’ of the Team Building activity based on performance during the 2-hour program, the real winners are unveiled at the end of the activity when the group finds out that the solar cars, along with brand new solar car kits and a solar classroom curriculum will be donated to a local school. These cars and new car kits will be used by the school to further emphasize the importance of energy conservation and alternative methods of transportation, as well as foster creativity and innovation within the classroom.
How will your company go green this April?
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.

Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought?
