Back in early 2010, I went looking for team building ideas to use for a field trip I was planning for my team.
It took me hours to find what I wanted on the internet… hours trawling through lots of team building company websites. Mostly in my own time in the evenings.
I was left feeling there had to be a better way ….
(I finally settled on corporate drumming as a team building idea … it was fabulous – just what I wanted at the time!)
I suddenly thought: Why not set up my own website?
I’m inspired by the idea of enabling others to achieve the success they desire. And I like the thought that any support I can give in terms of making teams and team leaders more effective, is likely to result in positive ripple effects that go on and on.
UPDATE: January 2017
Since the above was written in March 2010, Team Building Bonanza has gone from the weekend hobby of one very passionate team leader, to the fun collaborative project of a group of team leaders.
Who are we?
We are a group of team leaders and facilitators who are passionate about sharing our knowledge with the world and creating a valuable team building resource.
We don’t pretend to have this whole team building thing down 100%, or know all the answers.
It’s an ongoing work in progress.
However, We’re passionate about the difference individuals and teams can make with their actions – both large and small.
Whether you’re a manager or supervisor ….or a leader within your team ‘without the title’, we wish you all the best in developing your team into what you want it to be. We hope this website can play a part in assisting you to create the high performing team you want and a workplace which is fun and inspiring to work in.
The contribution a truly effective team can make is incredible, whether that be in corporate life, sport or any field of endeavour. I’ll leave you with my favourite team-building quote…
“Never doubt that a small group of committed people can make a difference … in fact, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
