Our Team Event on 20.07.2018 at Bangalore

Monday, 23 July 2018

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation” – Plato

20th July was one such day, when we literally rediscovered ourselves and our office Buddies. The day that was organized at ‘Octave’ resort, started with a get-to-know-each-other ice breaker session (Thanks to Bhakti and Reshma, our Humble Rockstars!).

Never did we realize the power of prefixing the names of our friends with an ‘Adjective’ that best describe them – it gets even better when the adjective and the name start with the same alphabet! ‘Bright’ Bhakti , ‘Dangerous’ Dinesh , ‘Sacred’ Sanjay  and many more – We suggest you try it out once for yourself and see the wonders it creates!

We then moved on to events such as Guide the Blind folded, Treasure hunt, Passing the Peanut etc. All these events were ‘Team’ events, with more than 10 members per team. The games proved entertaining enough to bring out the kid in us! It was fun to watch our winning teams pounce on their prizes (bunch of chocolates) as if it was their most prized possession! On the other hand, to win the game, there were folks who were ready to stoop down to ground level to ensure their peanuts fell into the cup! Now when was the last time you did that ?!?!?!

Having said that all, there were a lot of untold messages that were conveyed through these events. Many of the games threw light on the importance of the contribution of each team member, in order to achieve a common goal – how critical it is to leverage every team member’s strength and help them overcome their weaknesses and more importantly, how to peacefully handle a crisis!

With quite a number of new joiners over the past few months, the day got all of us well acquainted with each other – And at the end of the day we took home loads of fun-filled memories, inspiring anecdotes, enlightening conversations and above all, a fire to get back to work with a renewed spirit of camaraderie!

Cheers to all of us!
