Family Games

We are in a time where the family dynamic is changing rapidly. Eating at the dinner table together is rare. Sitting in the same room watching the same television show is almost unheard-of. This generation of children is getting even more involved in activities outside of the home. Friends, coaches and teachers have more face-to-face contact with them than their parents. However, there has to be something that is unique to the family; a certain time during the day or day during the week or month; a certain activity or moment that is for the family only. How can that be achieved? Parents must be intentional and creative when competing with the world for their child’s attention. 

Come learn, swap and exchange some new activities and a few old activities with a modern twist that you can do with your family.

Team Building Activities

Ideally, every organization would be able to bring in a professional team builder that is seasoned in social and group dynamics, and the associated activities that address those target areas. This way, not only does the organization receive an objective third party perspective and top-notch quality service, but the entire group gets to participate in the building process. But of course, there are many companies who either can’t afford this approach or don’t find value in paying for this particular service. This session will provide a peak into the value associated with healthy group and social dynamics, and how to see the team building potential in any group or social setting and using the simplest of items as tools.

Workplace Advocacy

One of the greatest attributes of a team is their willingness to back each other up. The next level of workplace advocacy is when those team members who support one another begin to do the same for the company. Workplace advocacy has been a rising issue over the last ten years.
