Charity Team Building – Wagons for the Holidays

There are many unique ways to hold a charity team building event this holiday season that’s one-of-a-kind and not the same old ho-hum holiday party.

Having your team regroup and spending some time unwinding and connecting on a regular basis is important, as this directly impacts how productive your team is throughout the year. With deliberate team building events, you can help your people work together and collaborate with each other in order to overcome obstacles, just as they would do so in an office setting. But the key here is to choose an activity that doesn’t feel like “work”, and in doing so you take their mind off the usual stress that their work brings. One example of a unique activity is building wagons for underprivileged children as a team.

Oh No, Not Another Team Building Event!

If you have a couple minutes, run around your office and take an informal poll. Tell everybody you see that you’re planning a team building event, and take note of the reactions. Chances are, you’ll get mixed reactions based past experiences with other “team building events”. Too often people have been exposed to poorly thought out, poorly orchestrated events with no clear purpose and no positive outcome.

Why not combine the holiday season with some feel-good philanthropy to help shake those negative feelings? You can sneak a team building event into your holiday celebration without people realizing that it’s another one of “those things” until it’s over! Have a great time, shake a negative stereotype, learn something, and help the community all in one!

Turn Holiday Parties Into Something More Meaningful

Building your team’s sense of “team” can sometimes prove difficult because many employees hardly know each other beyond the water cooler, the cafeteria, or the mandatory Monday team meeting. Sure, we know about Suzie’s dance recitals on Thursdays and Johnny’s teeball games every weekend. Years and years of working in the same office space, or attending the same holiday parties might get your team to where they know one another’s birthdays or spouses names, but a lot of the interaction stops there.
