“A good team needs three things: the right people, the right spirit, and a couple of inside jokes.”
Too true, a great corporate team is made up of the best people for the job, a spirit of collaboration, encouragement and positivity and yes, a sense of humour that connects every member of the team.
But what happens when your team of excellent people is running low on spirit and their sense of humour has been strained by tough deadlines, or tougher yet, a shortage of projects coming in? Continue reading

I recently spent the afternoon acrobranching in Constantia with my mom. We started on the blue course, which is meant to be the hardest course, and then we realised just how scared of heights we were and we moved over to the less high, yellow course.
This was perfect for both of us because we could still do the ‘big’ zip line at the end which was the most fun part!
Here’s a testimonial we received from Ms Naidoo after her visit to the Acrobranch Melrose Park.
“A huge thank you to making it an awesome fun day for my boys and i, we had fun the whole day on the 16/12/2014 and brad the instructor just made it more special.
With his patience and his awesome personality my boys could not have had a better experience and fantastic instuctor,as they were abit reluctant to come to the park,but after yesterday i guess we going to be often at the Acrobranch in Johannesburg Melrose Arch.

Eskom announced that they will again be rolling out loadshedding and most cities in South Africa will be affected by their loadshedding schedules.
While it can be terribly frustrating to be cut off and in the dark, the best way to deal with it is to make alternative and fun plans that don’t involve switches and lights.
Take our word for it, now is a good time to stock up on candles, buy a torch and a car cellphone charger if you don’t have one and not fill up your fridge as the food may go off during long loadsheddings. For evenings, a braai, a candlelit dinner and a good book are all recommended and can turn black-outs into romantic, or at least unusual, experiences reminiscent of bygone times.
We have looked into the latest research on Fear of Heights and we’re happy that our Outdoor Activity Parks qualify as a perfect suggestion for beating Acrophobia.
Team Building is a gift to employees that, if planned wisely, can keep on giving back for years to come. Employees appreciate some time out of the office, getting to know each other, and by teaming departments that might not normally work closely, trust grows which in turn leads to increased productivity.
We decided to dig deeper into the secrets of successful team building ideas and embark on a search for the Perfect Team Building activity.
It’s often wise to take a step back in order to jump further, and for your team to feel truly appreciated, it’s important to clock everybody off for the duration of the team building. Make it a whole day affair… The lost time will quickly be made up for through heightened motivation.
Being Outdoors and reconnecting with nature in beautiful surroundings will lift everyone’s spirit and inspire productive new ideas at work.
Make it Fun
Advertising Legend David Ogilvy famously said :
“When people aren’t having any fun, they seldom produce good work.”
