Know what’s insanely fun? Launching objects both really far and really accurately. Those who’ve dreamt of defending their castle from invaders will find our Catapult teambuilder program a dream come true, and even those who’ve never touched a slingshot in their lives will find it exhilarating, collaborative, and a spectacularly great team building activity.

We hear a lot how incredible our facilitators, assistants, partners, office staff, and programs are. Often, clients will marvel at the number of people on the Best TeamBuilding® and Corporate Events team! It’s true.

For those seeking CSR team building activities, look no further than our We Care For Kids™ charitable program. Fully customizable, it offers the perfect mix of teamwork, philanthropy, and social responsibility – plus an incredible amount of fun and a dose of heartwarming delight. Check out the video: the beaming faces of the kids who receive the rocking chairs, reading benches, bikes, stuffed animals, or trauma care packages is only matched by the beaming faces of the corporate teams who put all those gifts together!
Elizabeth Henderson’s insightful article (for ONE+, the official magazine of MPI) about how gamification can drive businesses, governments, and teams forward towards productivity is worth a read. We really resonated with her thoughts on “incorporating gaming strategy into events”. Not surprisingly, this is exactly what we do with all of our events. Everything from our corporate team building activities to SmartHunts to our various charitable programs and culinary events are designed to jump start an improvement in employee interaction and cooperation. In a future blog, we’ll also discuss how huge entities like Fortune 500 companies and the United States Government are offering gaming with competitive prizes to improve the odds of success in the marketplace.
We repeatedly hear words like “awesome” and “fantastic” when clients give us feedback about our Pipeline team building program. Why? Probably because it’s the perfect combination of communication, collaboration, and pure fun, with teams carefully constructing unique structures using limited resources. It’s a strategic challenge, and when they succeed, you won’t believe how excited they are – and how well their group has bonded! Check out this video: awesome and fantastic indeed!

Many experts in fields from sales and team dynamics to productivity and weight loss discuss the idea of having at least one person to whom you are accountable. Whatever the task or goal, it’s simply more likely to reach completion if there are regular check-ins with someone else. Some have dubbed this person an “accountabilibuddy” – a cute word combination of the idea of accountability with that of a buddy, obviously.
Whatever you call the co-worker filling this vital role, however, he or she serves an important function in getting work done. We love when we hear feedback that our Best TeamBuilding® programs have forged stronger bonds between teammates, especially when accountabilibuddies (that’s a mouthful!) are now more comfortable, more focused, and more productive when working together.
