Event Type: Small Group

Build a Better Mousetrap

Organizations face a wide variety of challenges; some predictable, others entirely unexpected. Success in business can often rely upon our employees’ ability to understand the challenges they face and effectively adapt to those events which catch them off-guard, with each understanding their role in the team when this occurs. We’ve taken the time to craft a unique team building event for companies in Denver Metro that explores their abilities in the face of change management.

This team program is based on the best selling book “Who Moved my Cheese” by Spencer Johnson. In the book, 4 characters in a maze are looking for their cheese (a metaphor for what each of us wants in life), our event focuses on the lessons these characters must learn:

The “Handwriting is on the wall”
“Change happens”
“Anticipate change”
“Monitor change”
“Adapt to change quickly”

We ask groups to work on a specific challenge project together with a specific set of parameters and key assigned roles within the group. Then we “change” everything and see how teams react. They must work together to successfully adapt, and create the project despite the new rules, players, deadlines, etc. This mimics the challenges they’ll face in real life, where at any time during their projects the team members, parameters and deadlines might change, but they still have to make it work together.

Bikes for Kids

Riding a bike is often a key aspect of our formative experiences. It provides us with healthy exercise, enhances our physical and cognitive skills, and offers the opportunity for incredible adventures and the memories that go along with them. Unfortunately, there are children in our state that don’t have those opportunities. We’ve created a Colorado team building event that engages your team’s technical and creative skills, while allowing your company the chance to make a real impact on the lives of children.

This bicycle building experience will touch your hearts and inspire your minds. It is filled with fun and excitement, as well as the opportunity to develop skills, tools and insights that will make a dramatic and powerful effect on your team. However, this activity goes beyond the simple ability to follow instructions and work together. Teams will compete in problem solving puzzles and challenges in order to be rewarded with the tools and pieces needed to construct the bikes. Participants get to bond through their competitive spirit, harness their individual talents, and engage their empathy to understand their effect upon the world. The bicycles produced by your teams will be donated to local children’s organizations like The Tennyson Center, YMCA, A Precious Child, CASA or Boys & Girls clubs.
