Team Building Activity — Operation Hot Air
Team Building — Brad Style Blowing Things Up!
Can You Afford NOT to Have Your Team Working at Their Peak?
Dysfunctional Teams Cost You. They are:
- Less Innovative
- Less Creative
- More toxic / have poor morale & engagement
- Less Productive
Brad’s Program will bring your folks together. Fostering communication, innovation, creativity, productivity, building relationships, developing team-work. And Brad’s most popular team-building program is Operation Hot-Air.
This unique, multidimensional experiential, hands-on event is designed not only to bring your team closer together in pursuit of a common goal (namely a crazy task with animal balloons), but to extend the feeling of camaraderie and unity that arises during the activity out into their wider, working world. What? you say. How can making a balloon sculpture help my people? You’re crazy!
Crazy like a fox, maybe. Here’s how it works: First Brad breaks up the larger group into smaller segments. Corporate divisions or departments get scattered so everyone’s with somebody new. Let’s break up those cliques! Er…silos! Brad takes your employees out of their comfort zones, gets them feeling a little off-balance right from the get go. Then they go to it, building the biggest, coolest, craziest thing they can imagine; one that represents their company, their team, their personality.
Who’s an expert at turning balloons into art (besides Brad, that is)? Turns out no one is. So everyone from
the execs to the managers to the worker bees is on the same footing. Equality breeds creativity and innovation and teamwork. And most of all, it builds laughter! There’s motion, there’s color, there’s noise and confusion. But most of all there’s fun and everyone ends up working as a team. That’s why they call it Team-Building, right?
We’ll Do More than Build Your Team. This is a LESSON on Team-Building.
But we don’t stop there. The next step is crucial. Brad leads a facilitated discussion with the group to analyze, to share, to deconstruct (not the balloons!) the process!. Your people talk. And by talking, they learn. What worked? What didn’t work? Why did this event create a team? How do we duplicate it back in the office (without the balloons, unless you want to…heck, why not?) Your people end up learning take-away action steps that they can apply to their own teams, their own departments, their own work processes. It’s innovative and it’s fun, and it WORKS!
Team Building Experience — Brad Style. What is it?
Brad’s used this activity with computer engineers (Microsoft), with rocket scientists (Lockheed Martin), with doctors and nurses (Paoli Hospital, Trinity Mother Francis Hospital, Oncology Nurses Assoc.), and they all had a blast. (Get it? Rocket scientists had a blast? Hahahaha). But more than that, they laughed together, they grew closer, they communicated. They became more productive. They made their organizations stronger and more profitable.
“I never would have believed my doctors would go for the animal balloon thing…. but it was a HUGE success.” — Kathleen M, Pennsylvania Hospital
Brad has developed a killer team building activity that is fun, effectively builds camaraderie, feeds creativity, and will have your people laughing WHILE they grow closer . And they’ll learn.
This experience is perfect for ANY business, ANY product, ANY service. He’ll customize it so it’s personal to your team. Brad turns the event into specific learning points, attitudes, and skills that your employees can use at work, and even at home. It’s irresistible. It’s wacky. But mostly it’s genius. Try it and see.
“It was perfect! Brad helped us turn our meal into a fun and meaningful activity! We’ll do this again for sure. thanks Brad.” — Leslie L. Houston Texas
