Build-a-Raft Competition: Video of the Week

One great way to jumpstart your team into new ways of thinking – and therefore a stronger bond – is to have them work together on something that at first sounds impossible.  Check out this video: that’s exactly what this program is all about!  With just the materials provided, like duct tape and PVC pipes, teams are expected to build a working raft, transport it to a body of water, and take their sea-worthy craft for not just a test run but an actual race.  When you watch your teams succeed at a task that seemed so far out of reach, you’re also watching them gain confidence in their collaborating, which is powerful when they’re back at the office!
