Anyone who operates a small business can relate to the scene in Pixar’s Toy Story where Buzz demonstrates his ability to “fall with style”.
Woody argues against Buzz’s ability to fly. Buzz has faith and proves he can.
When David Goldstein started TeamBonding (in its many iterations) over twenty years ago, he faced many of the entrepreneurial challenges new businesses deal with today: when to act, how to stay focused, taking hard lessons and adapting along the way.
You’ve been to those corporate events or participated in “team building” activities that were meant to bring everyone together as a team, but everything felt forced and awkward, right? Where there was a lot of sighing, eye rolling, and plain old resistance to the idea of working together?
Team Bonding that works.
At TeamBonding, David took a long hard look at what was being offered as team building activities for work. Taking a cue from children and play, we’ve been creating and facilitating the kind of team bonding that enables your team to learn, grow and form bonds that are authentic and profound.
When bonds run deep, your team is more collaborative and more caring of each other, which makes them more effective and productive. The Power of Play is so effective that we see teams return for more programs and we’ve return to the lnc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing companies for 2013.
Thank YOU for bonding with us!
According to an article by Leigh Buchanan, the one thing that Inc. 5000 companies have in common is performance. We don’t know about the other companies, but we know that WE couldn’t have done it without YOU! A special THANK YOU to you, our clients, staff, facilitators and friends.
A Team Bonding gift for you.
As a special gift, we’ve created the Team Quotes App, which you can download for free today and stay inspired throughout the year with quotes from philosophers, leaders and professional athletes that know what it takes to succeed as a team.
This is the fourth year that TeamBonding has been on the Inc. 5000 list. Let’s go for number 5!
Connect with us to find out how we can help your team forge the bonds needed to be the best of the best.
Imagine if you will, that it’s 2006 again. The housing bubble has just burst, and the US economy is teetering on the brink of what will end up being the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression. People are scared for the futures of their companies, and are cutting corners at every possible turn. No one is very eager to spend money on team building.
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!
It’s one thing to create an atmosphere of trust and a feeling of camaraderie between employees when they’re all in the same building 40 or so hours a week.
Know each other as people, not just professionals. We’re all so much more than our job titles. We have interests that may have drawn each of us to our roles and help us excel within them. There are easy team building icebreaker activities for work that will help you and your team bond and get to know each other as more than just your role in the office. (more…)
Team building games and ice breaker activities for adults can keep your team bonded throughout the year. Get started with this simple DIY team building exercise. EXERCISE GOAL: Participants will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and those around them through ice breaker activities. (more…)
I’m Joyce Ngo – public relations enthusiast, student, and currently TeamBonding marketing intern. This summer as part of my internship I will be focusing on social media and bringing the experience of the events and programs we do to the mass public from my perspective. You’ll get a behind the scenes view of what happens before the event and the preparation that goes into it. I’ll be posting blog posts about my observations and experience at each event. Basically, you’ll get to see what Joyce the Intern sees, no fluff. This time I went to a Team Teddy Rescue Bear.
