There are many forces reshaping the workplace today, which inspired founders of TalentCulture to create a collaborative village of talent-minded professionals to support one another through sometimes chaotic shifts in business, technology and workforce dynamics.
Now, TalentCulture is recognized as a living metaphor for the social workplace, highlighting a significant shift toward innovation at work. If you want to cultivate and maintain a culture of talent within this evolving business environment, you need to get creative with team building. That’s why we developed two new programs inspired by the Rube Goldberg machine.
1. Chain Reaction
This program provides an opportunity to ignite core company values among your team. Participants must communicate seamlessly, troubleshoot their designs, and find a perfect balance between uniqueness, functionality, and attention to detail.
Participants must work together to find the correct sequence of mechanisms, so that, once launched each element will trigger the next in a chain reaction building to an explosive finale. See details.
2. Chain Reaction: Team Machine
In this spin-off of The Chain Reaction Challenge, teams put their heads together to create one giant machine. Unlike the Chain Reaction Challenge where teams compete against each other to create the best individual machine, teams must co-operate with one another to connect their individual portions into one big, functioning machine.

How do you cultivate a talent culture at your workplace?
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…)
