“Teamwork divides the task and double the success.” -Unknown
Best TeamBuilding® and Corporate Events had our best year yet in 2012 – and we feel certain that 2013 will bring even more opportunities! How do we know? Well, we’ve added technology (including slews of Apple iPads and our own proprietary application) to many of our programs, making them the most high-tech team building events ever. We’ve strengthened our connections to existing clients by wowing them time and again, making their successful event our priority. And we’ve got several incredibly exciting developments rolling out nationwide this year that we’ll share the moment they’re finalized. We look forward to working with you and your team in 2013!
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!
“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.
We here at Best TeamBuilding truly believe in the power of teams. We’ve made it our mission to make your team as strong as possible so that you can go off and do what you do, more cohesively, more determinedly, and more spectacularly. Working together can lead to incredible accomplishments, as these world records attest, and we can’t wait to help your team change the world in 2013 and beyond!
It can be a challenge to incorporate the spirit of giving that the holiday season represents into a corporate meeting or function. One perfect solution is the Charity Golf Course Build program, which covers all the best elements of a team building event: fun, creativity, teamwork, gamification, and philanthropy! Check out this video for just a smattering of the hundreds of incredible, unique, themed “golf course hole” designs we’ve helped facilitate.

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!
What do the following phrases have in common? Nose Dive. Hoop Dance. Card Ninja. Separation Anxiety. Give up? They are all hilarious games that may be played during a fast-paced program called A Minute 2 Win It! Check out this video of teams dealing with everyday items (from balloons to cotton balls to plastic cups) in unique and challenging ways. Sneaking in serious teamwork while everyone’s having an absolute blast? Priceless!

If you’ve seen any of the photos or videos of our corporate programs, you’ve probably noticed that there are often huge groups, hundreds or even thousands of participants, pictured. We call ourselves large group specialists because our team building events have been carefully crafted to work for a wide variety of group sizes and because our facilitators have extensive experience handling stadium-filling crowds. We often hear clients marveling at how easily the Best TeamBuilding® facilitators instantaneously captured the attention of eight hundred employees who tend toward distraction. Each program on our website (bestteambuilding.com) shows exactly how many people it can accommodate, with numerous options for groups of a thousand or more. So don’t worry about your group size! We love a challenge – and we love exceeding your expectations even more!
It only takes one time through this two-minute video to see that not only do our clients have an incredibly fun time when we facilitate a corporate team-building program for them, but that their groups actually come together, bond, and emerge stronger and better able to get back to work. Our passion is helping your team find success, and we are honored to do so every single day, all over the country!

So even as they’re jumping for joy and high-fiving each other (see the video below) they’re learning the true meaning of Ken Blanchard’s saying “none of us is as smart as all of us” – and they are bound to apply that improved mindset when back at work. The feedback about this program is incredible!
