“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”- Henry Ford
This week’s team building quote comes from a man who revolutionized American industry and laid the foundation for many operating practices of today: Henry Ford. Ford’s innovative thinking gave way to mass production and mass consumption where workers could purchase the product they were making, which began the development of the American Dream.
Ford achieved success by upgrading traditional industrial methods and creating the assembly line, allowing individuals to contribute their personal skills to the greater goal of the company. With everyone completing their assigned task and working as a team, production increased by eight to one.
Ford believed that everyone working together was better than one person working alone.
Like the process Ford used with his company, the TeamBonding process is a model for success and creates authentic corporate bonds between team members. We help you select the right program for your team and participate in one of our many events.

One individual alone cannot run a successful company. Doesn’t it make sense to combine everyone’s ideas and skills in order to create the best product possible? Whether your product is tangible or not, a profitable business is built on a cohesive team.
Henry Ford’s assembly line involved workers having responsibility for a specific task; which contributed to the height of consumerism. However, your company’s drive to work together and succeed leads to immeasurable possibilities of your accomplishments. Only you can produce to your greatest potential, and your greatest potential comes from challenging one another and building a team.

When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively to improve teamwork. (more…)
There are little things that people do that can cause us to scream in our heads – “Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God, will you stop PLEASE!” – but the annoyances are usually so trivial that no one ever really shares their frustration out loud…at least not until it’s too late to sound rational.

Turnover Formula: Employee turnover is the percentage of workers who leave your organization, the employment relationship ends and they are replaced by someone new. Attrition is different. This generally refers to the end of the employment relationship due to retirement or job elimination or employee death. When attrition occurs, the position is not filled with a new employee.
In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.
