You have to watch the video below, because the snow in Boulder, Colorado on November 14th didn't stop us from conducting one of the most rewarding team building programs of the year.
- 100+ amazing clients from Unisyn
- An "Amazing Race" GPS scavenger hunt on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado
- Creating mission statements from words found during the amazing race
- A service component of the event, giving 20 bikes to underpriviledged kids from the "I Have a Dream Foundation" in Boulder
- Turkey baskets provided to 15 families
Understanding team members' preferences, motivations, priorities, and ideosynchracies can make a big difference on whether team members work well together or not.
In almost all of my strategic team building seminars I conduct with senior leaders and executives, I use either the DiSC profile or the MBTI as a tool to help create cohesion.
The purpose is really two-fold.
As I work with companies and organizations of all types, my biggest concern right now is the level of employee engagement. An even more important concern is the level of employee engagement among the best employees.
Effective communication is intentional. A simple tool for speaking assertively and authentically is using the "I" statement. Here is an exerpt from John W. Jacobs.

It's snowing here in Boulder, Colorado....big time. Receiving a foot of snow on October 28th came a bit unexpected. At least for me.
But the fresh snow gets me excited about my favorite winter pursuits, like teleskiing and ice climbing. Unfortunately, the snow also reminds me that it is budget season (not quite as fun as skiing), and it's time to prepare for the new year.
