Art of Giving Charity Event: Video of the Week

As the year comes to a close, it’s often a time to feel grateful for what we have – and to share with others who might be less fortunate.  Those who take part in our Art of Giving charity event, painting a beautiful multi-panel mural that is then donated to a hospital, shelter, or other local care space, report a myriad of positive results: not only are they humbled to be able to brighten up a nearby facility, but they feel creative and collaborative in the process.  Your company helps make a long-term difference, your team connects and succeeds, and the spirit of giving is seamlessly shared. It’s a win-win-win!

Team Building – Amazing Things Can Happen

“No one can whistle a symphony. It takes an orchestra to play it.” – H.E. Luccock

Have you seen this article about some of the world records officially broken this year? It’s a beautiful testament to the power of team building; when a group of people serve a singular purpose, amazing things can happen! Case in point, check out the photo of over 2,600 women dancing the kaikottikali in unison in India. Or the one of 28 ladies who squeezed themselves into one modern Mini hatchback. Or the breathtaking sight of Wajima City, Japan, where hundreds of volunteers placed over 20,000 solar lights in a pattern that lights up the mountainside when night falls.

Learning from Lucas – Helping Teams Through Company Mergers

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” -Henry Ford

The acquisition of LucasFilm by Disney has been a hot topic of discussion lately; though some are most interested in the creative future of a certain film series set “in a galaxy far, far away,” many are also arguing about the price tag, which reportedly topped $4 billion, and the business side of the companies coming together.  When companies combine, whether due to an equal-footing merger or due to one buying the other, a whole new dynamic emerges, and navigating those changes can be a difficult task.  Fortunately, many companies find success turning to tried-and-true techniques like some of Best TeamBuilding’s battle-tested programs on team collaboration and communication during this tricky time.  From learning to trust a new colleague to building cohesion in a new group, the challenges are surmountable thanks to our carefully-crafted programs.  We pride ourselves on our track record helping clients who have dealt with mergers, acquisitions, and other upheavals, no matter their size!
