Team Building that Gives Back to the Community
Looking for a team engagement experience that your team members will be talking about for months to come?
All of our creative, interactive team engagement experiences are custom-designed to meet your team development goals and work within your available timeframe. The experiences can happen in our creative meeting space or our facilitators can come to you anywhere in the world!
To design a team engagement experience, we'll need to know:
- What does your team do well?
- In what ways does your team need to improve?
For best results, a full-day program (7–8 hours) is recommended for your team’s first team engagement experience with us. However, since we custom-design the experiences, we can create a program that fits your schedule. We can create a half-day program for you, we can add a 2–3 hour community giveback experience to an existing meeting, we can design a 2-hour program that happens each month, and we can even come for 20 minutes of your weekly staff meeting!
All of our team engagement experiences include a community giveback. Why? Because the best way to bring a team together is to help them help others. Our programs teach the skills needed to function as a high-performing team while enabling participants to discover the significance of engaging their hearts in their work together.
The giveback programs are much more than a community service project. Each program focuses on helping a specific child or family who is need of a little help. During the program, team members are completing challenges and overcoming obstacles together in order to earn or create items for the giveback recipients. Then, at the end of the giveback experience, teams will meet and interact with the families being helped. No one’s life is the same after that point!
Examples of community giveback programs include:
Team Adventures—Challenge your team to leverage strengths and develop communication skills as they solve clues, complete tasks, create solutions, and make a significant difference in the lives of a local family in need. The giveback can be bicycles or school supplies for local kids or wish list items for a local family.
Build-a-Dream—Challenge your team to leverage strengths and work efficiently as a team to create a bed for a local child in need. Team members will complete custom-designed challenges in order to accumulate the resources needed for the project and then draw upon their various strengths to assign roles to complete the project.
Build a Bridge—Create significant connections between team members while earning wish list items for a local family in need. In Build-A-Bridge, teams (6–8 people per team) will identify and leverage their strengths in order to build bridges out of available resources that sustain a remote control car over a specified distance. As your team builds physical bridges in this program, they will consider the importance of connectedness in their work.
Reaching New Heights Together—Challenge your team to help local families in need by working efficiently as a team to design, build, market, and fly a model airplane. Though the main objective of the experience is to successfully build and fly a model airplane out of available resources, team members will be challenged to navigate numerous interruptions and projects that will distract them from the objective. The giveback can be books, bicycles, or school supplies for kids or wishlist items for an entire family.
Shift Work—Pefect for convention breakouts or companies with workers on multiple shifts, different teams will work over multiple sessions to build a playhouse for a local family. Just like at work, participants engage the truth that all of the shifts or departments must be on the same page for the company to be successful.
