Your Company is Introducing a Product
A company with sixteen branches is introducing a new add-on service. The service has incredible potential for both profitability and building brand loyalty with their customers. The executive management team is excited and they call the managers and assistant managers in for a formal training on the new product.
The meeting starts in the morning and features presentations from the President and the Vice Presidents, presentations from the team that developed the product, a session on how to fill out the forms for the product, and even an introduction to the incentives for selling the product. The morning is filled with slideshows, role plays, quizzes that put the attendees on the spot, and even a test before lunch.
After the break, the attendees return prepared to suffer through another long afternoon of training, but upon arrival, they notice the room is reorganized and buckets of LEGO bricks are on the tables. When the Vice President introduces their guest, an instructor from Bonanza Educational, and says, ‘We’re gonna play with some LEGO bricks this afternoon’, everyone realizes “training” just became “amazing.”
The Bonanza Educational instructor explains they had heard the team was learning about a new product, and that it was their turn to start selling it. The group is divided into teams of four and given iPads, LEGO bricks, and other supplies. They are told to make a “commercial” out of LEGO bricks using stop motion animation.
After a quick introduction to animation methods, the teams break off to create their commercials. The managers are laughing, complimenting each others’ ideas, and enjoying a playful afternoon. The commercials turn out great! Some end up being funny. Others are serious. Many are tongue in cheek. The managers are told that, in a few days, the videos will be sent to them to share with their teams at branch training. The managers find out later that, as it turns out, one of the videos is so good it is being used as a starting point for an actual commercial for the new product on social media.
The managers leave the training refreshed, excited, and ready to sell the new product. Their training turned from traditional to amazing, thanks to Bonanza Educational.
Your team doesn’t mesh.
Your company has a gossip problem. While combating gossip can be difficult, improving work place relationships can often reduce or end gossip.
Your team arrives for a meeting and finds buckets of LEGO on the table. A Bonanza Educational instructor is introduced to the team and lays out a few rules for the participants, including building and sharing is required.
Attendees are then encouraged to build individual models that represent things about them. Like, a dog to represent they are dog lovers, or super hero, to represent they love Super Hero movies. After building several of these models and sharing them, individuals will see connections between themselves and others.
The Bonanza Educational instructor will then provide pieces that can draw those connections visually, like LEGO chain or string parts. Attendees will use these parts to show their connections to others, which will demonstrate that everyone on the team has things in common with each other.
Teammates will leave the meeting feeling more connected to each other, and less likely to engage in behaviors that hurt each other, like gossip.
