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!

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…)
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. (more…)
In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
Giving back to our communities makes you feel good, assists in making you more socially aware and helps you bond with your colleagues as you team up to help those in need. Charity is beneficial for both humanity and business for many reasons. When you participate in Corporate Social Responsibility team building activities, you get the best of both worlds.
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 corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs!
Corporate Social Responsibility: Corporate Social Responsibility refers to the idea that a company or corporation has a moral obligation to give back to their community. Some companies are more aware than others when it comes to the importance of corporate social responsibility. One of the most notable is Haagen-Dazs, an ice cream company that prides themselves on using all-natural ingredients. What then makes for an effective CSR program?
