There’s a good reason our Bike-A-Thon™ bicycle team building workshop is the world’s most popular team building workshop!
It’s fun, it’s engaging, and it does great things for the community. That’s what keeps groups coming back fore more, year after year. They also love the way building bicycles for local Orlando kids brings out the collaborative spirit in everyone.
Purpose-driven team building makes participants aim higher.
When participants know they’re working for a good cause like assembling bicycles for local Orlando kids, it drives them to do more and reach further. That’s where our facilitators come in: they place obstacles before the teams, challenging them to use important team building skills to complete the various activities of the day.
So while participants are having fun competing for parts and tools, facilitators are putting their skills to the test. Problem-solving, communication, collaboration…it’s all part of the bicycle building process, and it’s all highly transferable back to the office environment.
Hands-on Learning for long-lasting results.
The excitement of a Bike-a-Thon™ bicycle team building workshop builds throughout the day. It’s clear that when colleagues get together to create something that will have a positive impact on their community, everyone gets involved.
In fact, one of the lessons learned during a Bike-a-Thon™ bicycle team building workshop is the value of having everyone contribute. Each participant brings his or her own unique skills to the table, and together the job gets done.
This is so true in a work setting as well. Recognizing diversity and using all the resources available when solving problems is the key to teamwork success. That’s exactly why Bike-a-Thon™ works so well. Teams are learning by doing, practicing new forms of collaboration and communication, and putting everything to the test in a non-threatening environment.
Then, back at the office they’ll be able to benefit from the transfer of these lessons.
Building bicycles means building bridges in Orlando.
