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.
There we had dinner and a show featuring celebrity chef, Liz Bramwell. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to sit at the counter in front of a celebrity chef (like on those cooking shows you used to watch) while they craft your meal, talk to them about their experiences, and asking them any culinary questions your heart desires…then you need to get a ticket.
It was an amazing experience and from the minute we all stepped in the door to Bar Rustic to when we left the studio, we all bonded as a team. Some times it’s hard to talk to other people in the office when they’re not directly in your department, but this night everyone intermingled and we got to know the new people on staff a little bit better.
We’re thrilled to announce our new strategic partnership with Catalyst Global. Catalyst Global is an international network of 47 team building partners spanning 90 countries. TeamBonding and Catalyst Global were both established over 25 years ago and have been leaders in the team building industry since. Through this partnership, TeamBonding and Catalyst Global will strive to increase the availability of team building resources, services and events.
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…)
Team building brings people together by encouraging collaboration and teamwork. Fun activities that help people see each other in a different light allow them to connect in a different setting. People on your team are asked to think about the implications of these activities at their workplace.
