Before Board Meeting Event: The Board Meeting, like all of our give back activities, starts by identifying specific business goals and company values that the team building event will deliver upon. A call can be arranged with a tenured facilitator to discuss specific messaging, desired learning objectives, and interactive components.
During Board Meeting Event:
Session I – Icebreaker /Introduction: Application, participation, and engagement are discussed as they are related to the specific organizational values and individual behaviors as identified. Introviews™ are performed as team members ask a series of questions/ icebreakers in pairs to get to know each other and discuss some of the values and goals they have inside and out of business. Roles are assigned such as Sage, builder, decorator, and safety inspector. An instructional review and safety briefing are conducted and this session ends by establishing the timeline.
Session II – Children arrive: The teams are assigned and each one is assigned the child they will be working with. Time to get busy.
Session III – Customize with recipients: Communicating among adults is tough enough to achieve cohesive collaboration, but having a child present really makes people think about communication differently. Clean-up begins as skateboards are finished.
Session IV – Children depart with their new customized board and gear.
Session V – Debrief/Transference: This session begins as the Sages report out on observations of their teams related to collaboration, teamwork, quality, sense of purpose, communication, and goals and values related to the main objectives of the session.
Phase VI – Tipping Points™: Tipping Points are lessons, comments, and original quotes that team members pen down at the end of the give back activities. Everyone in the group is then emailed a quote a day to help tip individuals and teams by reminding them about the event. Some organizers post these around the office or distribute them in newsletters over a period of time.
Phase VII – Close.
