This one’s all about the name! It’s a song about the combined forces of close friendships and teamwork.
A Song About Teamwork
Lorde is only 18 years old and is already a Grammy Award-winning musician. She hails from New Zealand, and wrote the song “Team” while traveling and touring the world. She has described the song as a “tribute to her friends”. The lyrics call on the feeling of being part of a close and tight-knit group of peers, and being a member of a unit. Her friends are her “team”. It’s a song about teamwork within a group of friends.
Normally the word “team” is associated with athletics. But being a part of a team does not have to apply exclusively to sports or other types of organizations – like Lorde, your “team” could also be a group of friends or family members who work together and look out for each other.
“…and you know, we’re on each other’s team.”

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 charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
We have an exciting year of trade shows lined up! From ice sculpting demonstrations to battling with bows & arrows, our team is ready to bring the fun to these events across the country. Will you be in attendance at any of these shows?! If so, be sure to swing by our booth and say hello!
When it’s summer time, head outside to enjoy the rays and blue skies. DYI (Do it yourself) outdoor team building is a great way to learn new activities while surrounded by fun company and building strong bonds.
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 in order to work effectively. (more…)
