Coming together for a Corporate Feud

Hi everyone! It’s November! I haven’t blogged in a while, but here is my latest guest blog post for Chicago’s Corporate Event Interactive. They had a pretty cool client teambuilding activity recently based on Family Feud … who doesn’t love this show, whether you are a fan of the original or the new comeback with Steve Harvey.  Enjoy!

When was the last time your Corporate Feud was a funny, engaging one? Our teambuilding activity (based on the widely-known, long-running Family Feud game show) was exactly that for one of our valued clients, Brightstar Corp.  On October 15th, 2015, we ran The Brightstar Game Show Medley at the welcoming DoubleTree Hotel.

This brought their department together as a “family”, a corporate family. It allowed each individual to depend on each other, engage with one another, in answering the best they could to the different survey questions being posed within an allotted time frame. It was a funny way for everyone to learn to rely on each other outside their day-to-day office space. Yet, it still helped to meet the end goal: the importance of coming together, regardless of the specific environment, to complete tasks that result in successful business outcomes. The more you trust your co-workers, the better your working relationships will be. Creating for better everyday business practices.

If you can’t trust your family, who can you trust?

"The winning team!"
“The winning team!”

The day proved this as the different activities rolled out. There were winners and there were good sports (who earned a delicious box of Rice Roni … perfect for dinner that night, we might add). What really counts is that they were able to work as a team and deliver results … together.

"The good sports ... still winners in our eyes!"
