I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
Here’s what they say about it:
“We know our customers who travel abroad enjoy sampling our international menu items. Because we are always innovating our menu, we are thrilled to leverage our global scale and offer popular flavors from around the world to our U.S. customers,” said Linda VanGosen, McDonald’s Vice President of Menu Innovation.
This global strategy is exactly what we are doing with TeamBonding as part of the Catalyst Global Network, a partnership of 47 team building providers covering 90 countries. We too have customers who have teams in the US and abroad and we are now leveraging our global scale to offer popular team building events from around the world to our U.S. customers. We have a sample menu of the most popular global team building programs here.
TeamBonding has added some of the most popular team building programs from around the world including Beat the Box, created by our German partners, Boom Time,created by our French partners, the Global Innovation Game created by our Irish partners and the Infinite Loop, the world’s first VR team building event from our partners in Tunisia. As I write this, my son is in Israel having lunch with our Israeli partner.
We are Global Now!
As a U.S. partner, we are local and we are also global. Every day we share best practices, popular programs, successes and helpful tips on being the best we team building and training provider can be. Just last week we did our Ice Sculpting event for a client who hired us in Miami and in Wroclaw, Poland. Our partner in Poland helped us source the ice, the tools, and the staff.
So thank you McDonald’s, I think I will try something from your global menu and thank you Catalyst for welcoming us as part of your global team. There is so much more we can learn and we can share as one of the largest team building and training companies in the US.
At TeamBonding we think globally and act locally not only in our program design but on our team. One of our event managers is from Germany, our marketing coordinator is from Ecuador, our Adventure Activities facilitator is from the U.K.
As a team building company we build bridges, literally one program does it with chocolate and another with cardboard. Where in the world can we help you?
TeamBonding is re-defining the world of company culture. We know that the key to company growth and positive company culture is to invest in your team through team building. In our 25+ years of experience, it’s not surprising that it’s in our nature, which is ultimately what has defined our success. The Founder, David Goldstein has been actively building his team for years, so it’s no secret he’s got the best team! Not only does David plan activities for his team to enjoy, but he also began a whole engagement committee to toss around ideas for his team to do… and the sky is the limit.

The corporate world is experiencing a massive shift. A new generation is entering the workforce, many are retiring, and the formula for leadership is being re-invented. Dictatorships are giving way to collective organizational vision creation. Our titles, age, or departmental role do not define us. Focus is shifting from individual acceleration to purpose-driven teamwork. (more…)
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 to improve teamwork. (more…)
