3 ways New York City Team Building Can Help Your Business
Leverage team diversity:
Where better to work on building an inclusive team that in a city that draws from every continent on the globe. Team building cuts across the divides of culture, ethnicity, and gender, giving teams the opportunity to work as one. Having worked with the Columbia University MBA program for over 10 years, introducing 750+ students to critical team concepts annually, we have demonstrated our keen ability to bring diverse populations together both quickly and effectively. Whether you’re dealing with gender, racial, ethnic, or age differences, give your team the opportunity to think beyond their differences. This is team building in action!
Build critical thinking skills:
Team building in New York City is not limited to the indoors or just Central Park, there are numerous other options that are often overlooked. Imagine having your business meeting along the river at the Boat Basin and then immediately putting those corporate commitments to the test when faced with challenging team building exercises along the dock. Or see how important strategic planning and collaboration really is, as the staff of the Columbia Teachers College discovered when overcoming team-building challenges in Morningside Park. The real lessons come from the journey, not just the destination… but New York City is definitely an amazing destination!
Develop a stronger appreciation for diversity:
Music is a great illustration of the incredible power of creativity and diversity, and we have found the perfect way to tap this in our team building programs. We have partnered with New Your Cities own Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) to deliver some of the most engaging and thought provoking team building sessions that you will find. This classically trained composer, performer, violinist, and bandleader is world known for his blending of funk, rock, hip-hop and classical music into an energetic sonic experience. But the music, as impressive as it is, is only a vehicle to engage and inspire the group. The real team building comes from the conversation that we have along with the hands-on participation of the group. This is by far one of the most memorable demonstrations of leadership, teamwork, collaboration, and diversity that you will find.
