TEAM BUILDING and MORE

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”  – Plato

Our Philosophy: We feel it is always important to ask the key question: What does the Client really want to get out of the Event?  Would they like Team Building with a purely educational slant, or do they want to combine the elements of game play with Team Building and bonding techniques with theGALA 2013 WINNER COLOR LOGO (2) purpose of fostering an atmosphere of non threatening Team camaraderie.  Ninety percent of our corporate programs fall into the latter category. 

A Team Participant will learn more by doing then watching, so we endeavor to involve every single person in the entire program. We feel the trick to producing any successful Game Play oriented Team Building Program is that the participants can’t be hit over the head with the fact that they are working in a Team Building exercise, but rather they need to feel the Team Building from an organic level and have that “Aha” moment on their own. For this reason we constantly keep our programs fresh, fun and challenging.

Team Building and More was created as a direct result of our clients need for quality Team Building Programs. To fill repeat clients needs we responded with an array of Award Winning unique, entertaining, educational programs, and are constantly designing new programs for Clients. From Corporate Survivor, Deal Maker and Team Synergy to their TV Commercial Challenge, Game Shows, and their Award Winning Foodie Game Show™ and Murder On Cue® Mystery Maze, there is something for everyone, including an extensive choice of Scavenger Hunts, and City Adventures!

True Colors

BUILD A TOWERTrue Colors™ was originally designed and written to complement and enhance the MBS© personality profile programs.

In a brief relaxed, fun and humorous talk the Facilitator will open the program by explaining the basic premise of color based personality traits based on the MBS© personality profiles.  The goal of the program is to teach participants to resolve conflicts which are usually rooted in misunderstanding by learning how to better support each other and have a better understanding on how to service their clients.  After the talk we will reinforce what was learned as Teams compete in rounds of challenges in a unique Game Show format, utilizing various challenges: Observational Challenge: In the Personality Parade, the Facilitator/Actors will take turns addressing the audience with short monologues. Teams are given 15 seconds to decide which personality trait the Actor most possesses (Direct, Paced, Extroverted or Structured). Trust building Challenges, Strategy Challenges, and Creative Challenges are all utilized to enhance and support this one of a kind program.  FAST PACED – HIGH ENERGY – TEAM BONDING!!
