Jun 28, 2017 by Bekah Keene 0 Comments

there is no I in team why adding team building to your huddles is important blog

Ownership rule #5 from A Stake in the Outcome is “It takes a team to build equity value.” But how do you do that? How do you encourage teamwork and is it really that important?  During this session, you will learn the importance behind having a strong team and how to build your team with fun quick games during your huddles.  

We will address the following subjects:

1. Why would you take the time to do teambuilding activities?

According to a recent study, about 75% of employers rate team work as “very important”, yet only 18% of employees get communication evaluations at their performance reviews and even less companies integrate teamwork into their training plans. Engage your team and see positive results

2. Some fun ideas for teambuilding

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.  The session will give you lots of ideas on where to start and how to have fun with it.

3. Review of how it has helped our team

We have successfully been doing this for over a year and it has made a huge impact on our team.  The session will share some of these success stories with you.

Engaged employees create a better culture that in turn creates a more profitable company.  Get your team engaged, comfortable with each other and let them see that they are there to support each other all while having fun.  There is no “I” in team, but Together Everyone Achieves More!


This blog post was written in conjunction with a session about injecting teambuilding into your Huddles presented by Bekah Keene at the 25th Annual Gathering of Games.

About The Great Game of Business

Our approach to running a company was developed to help close one of the biggest gaps in business: the gap between managers and employees. We call our open-book approach The Great Game of Business. What lies at the heart of The Game is a very simple proposition: The best, most efficient, most profitable way to operate a business is to give everybody in the company a voice in saying how the company is run and a stake in the outcome. Let us teach you how to develop a culture of ownership, where employees think, act and feel like owners.
