We opened 2015 with a great Denver Team Building event. IHS Automotive recently acquired Polk. This new team of leaders wanted an out-of-the-box program that would enable their recently formed unit to share quality time and better envision who they are. There are growing pains when one company acquires another. Our Denver team building program provided a wonderful setting for people from across the globe to mix, mingle, make music and work together.
Meeting Our Client’s Goals
- Our client wanted to find a fun and engaging way to reinforce the transformational themes that were being introduced.
- They wanted people to get out of their comfort zone and discover common ideology and vision.
- A primary objective was to create an environment of enthusiasm, engagement and fun.
One hundred and fifty people from across the globe broke into eight teams. Each team was led by a hit songwriter-facilitator who helped everyone understand how to take their big picture themes, product lines and common experience; and work them into song lyrics. Songwriters soon discover they have only a few lines of lyric to convey a world of experience. Consequently, the songwriting process helps our clients take lots of great information and distill it into succinct, powerful messages through song.
Most importantly, music is emotional and relatable. It doesn’t feel like work when you’re taking ideas and singing them to a melody, literally – finding your groove as a team.
Denver Team Building Take-Aways
When the team songwriting was complete, teams took the stage for our song competition. It was a transformational experience as people who initially made us promise they wouldn’t have to sing, enthusiastically ran on stage to perform. Fear is forgotten as the joy of celebrating everyone’s own unique creations takes over.
The most powerful takeaway from this Denver team building program was passion. A group of tentative, reticent participants, became storytellers, songwriters and performers. What a great way to kick off 2015. Learn more about Team Building Through Song®.
