Team Building with Wild Rose

At the end of the day, life is all about being a teammate.  Every day, in some way, chances are that you will interact in some way with another person.  Some teams have a stronger bond, such as family, partners, best friends, spouses, and so on.  We play for other teams to make money.  Some teams we are a part of for a lifetime, while others only a day, an hour, or even as short as a minute.  You see, I like to think of humanity as one giant team.  If you get the chance, take a moment and check out this Pep Talk from Kid President.  He states it best when he says, "If life is a game, aren't we all on the same team?"

Anyway, we spent the afternoon working with Wild Rose on some of the major aspects of being a good teammate - listening, communication, cooperation, trust, as well as a few others.  At times, the atmosphere was light-hearted, fun, while at other times it was more serious.  We had smaller teams 'compete' in 2 activities (Tarp Downsizing and Minefield) and discussed the purpose and point of each activity as well as its relevance to the workplace afterwards.

(Downsizing is about to begin)

(Teammates have a chance to get close and work on their creative brainstorming power as well as their communication)

(Piggyback anyone?)

(The tarps keep getting smaller and smaller)

(Things are starting to get a bit interesting)

(Each team had their own strategy)

(A few smiles were had by all)

(What better way to work on trust than by using blindfolds)

(Seem to be quite a bit of obstacles on the 'Minefield')

(Hopefully nobody 'blows up')

(After crossing the 'Minefield' participants still had to reach their partners)

(A great team building exercise when executed properly)
