There is a reason that breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
Breakfast kick starts your day and keeps you healthy. Team Breakfast keeps your team healthy, too! This program brings your team together to bond as a group while they learn about food preparation, cooking and dining together. The goal is to use food preparation and the gourmet meal that is produced, as an active and powerful metaphor. It takes steps to create a meal just as it takes steps to build a team. The end results are a delicious meal and a healthy hard working team.
To start, everyone starts out by washing their hands and putting on an apron. This is followed by a Team Breakfast™ trainer beginning with an orientation about the program including safety lessons and basic knife skills. Next, teams are formed and a team leader or “chef de cuisine” is chosen for each. Finally, everyone begins to create food masterpieces! When breakfast is ready everyone can eat what they have created together as a team and share laughs and things they’ve learned from this team building experience. This is a great time to talk about teamwork skills to take back to the workplace.
Start your day off right by making breakfast with your team! At this program, a healthy team depends on a healthy breakfast.

Scavenger hunts are some of the most hilarious and exciting ways to build bonds within a team. People love them, any why not? They get you out of the office, moving around, and exploring your surroundings. We love building scavenger hunts for people, but we also know sometimes a fully produced and facilitated event isn’t in the cards for everyone. Which is why we’re happy to offer DIY scavenger hunts!
In this series of articles we take five minutes to chat with a member of the TeamBonding team so you can get an idea of the sort of people we are. In this installment, we talk with our Director of Facilitator Training, Paul Giroux. We sat down with him for five minutes to learn about everything from his favorite memory to the most important thing in life (family). (more…)
Remember the Wordless Wednesday question we posted on the hump-day?
