The Chain Reaction program was inspired by a Rube Goldberg machine, a mechanical device that works in a complex way to achieve a simple task.
You will design your very own Rube Goldberg inspired machine that will perform one simple task in a very complex fashion. This program can work in two different ways: competitive or collaborative. First, you can be divided into smaller teams to create individual Rube Goldberg machines. You can also, however, choose to collaborate as a larger team to create one BIG contraption.
This program requires some serious cooperation and communication skills among co-workers in order to create these innovative chain reactions. Participants will have the opportunity to build communication, cooperation, and troubleshooting skills as they work together to build a seamless contraption.
Annual events, corporate mergers, product launches or international teams integration events are the perfect opportunity for the Chain Reaction program. Participants can range in number from 10-1000+ and the program usually runs 2-3 hours.
Cooperation is the KEY to success in this team building program whether you take a competitive or collaborative route. Chain Reaction is a great way to strengthen relationships, get your creative juices flowing and put your strategic thinking to the test.

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!
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!

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…)
It’s one thing to create an atmosphere of trust and a feeling of camaraderie between employees when they’re all in the same building 40 or so hours a week.
As per the season, the TeamBonding team celebrated the holidays with a bang. Each year, the entire TeamBonding team kicks off the holidays with our annual holiday party. It’s always a new activity or adventure we haven’t done before. It gets hard trying to come up with new fun things to do and one-upping the year before. We try to do different activities each time and this year was no different. For our big surprise this year, we went to The Studio Kitchen at Kingston Collection in Kingston, MA.
