“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
Team building quotes do not only inspire teams to work together, but they also encourage individuals to be the best that they can be. With everybody in a team dreaming about their own goals and successes, it will create an atmosphere that is very productive.
Disney is one of the most recognizable and successful brand names in history, but most people do not think about the genius behind the empire. This week’s team building quote comes from Walt Disney himself. He is one of America’s most profitable businessmen, and he doesn’t even know it!
During his time, Walt laid the foundation for how we see Disney today. He was a great film producer and animator, but he did not live to see how his brilliant brand and ideas adapted to modern society.
The Walt Disney Company today is a multi-billion dollar corporation and its products include Walt Disney Studios, Disney Channel, ESPN, A+E Networks, ABC Family, ABC, publishers, theaters, music divisions, and 14 theme parks around the world. Without his innovative thinking and notion of dreaming big the entertainment industry would not be what it is today (and there would be no Prince Charming!).
The magic of Walt and his empire still inspires us today to dream big and follow our hearts. All of the famous, classic Disney movies portray the message of working hard to get what you want and hope whether it is The Lion King or Cinderella. Having the courage and integrity to follow your dreams is the first step to being successful.

Can’t get enough team building inspiration?
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…)
