To me the holiday season starts and ends with Thanksgiving. It is a holiday that brings people together, families, friends, co-workers. It is a time when and if possible, we are together with those that mean the most to us and this holiday really hasn’t fallen into religious or retail exploitation.
It started yesterday when the TeamBonding event managers, account managers, production people, interns, and the behind the scenes people here at TeamBonding came over to my house, brought food and wine and shared stories and laughs and enjoyed each other’s company. It means a lot that we work hard to make our clients look good and build teams within your company and bring people together through the power of play.
The holiday continues when our people can be with their families and take a little time to be with the ones that they love and love them. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with great clients like you, employ great people, create and innovate new ways to bring your teams together and really appreciate you giving us the opportunity to share our knowledge, passion and talent with your team. I am also grateful for a talented team in the office and our facilitators in the field and for new clients as well as the repeat clients who trust us year after year.
Here is something that we did to thank you for working with us. Happy Thanksgiving!

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…)
