DTE Energy Rescue Bear in Detroit, Michigan

Rescue Bear Team Building in Detroit MI

The Customer Service Managers from several regions of DTE Energy gathered for a day of meetings and team building in Detroit, Michigan recently. They also included Rescue Bear ® as part of that day. DTE Energy Co. is a diversified energy company involved in the development and management of energy-related businesses and services nationwide. This group of about 30 managers was skeptical at first but quickly got into the challenges and fun of the day.

Rescue Bear ® is a workshop that is designed to help people see the importance of matching a person with the right talent for the right role within the company.  It helps participants identify the strengths of themselves and others and rely on those strengths when under pressure.  It shows how/why “Silos” are created and how to deal with the “Silo” effect more effectively. At the end of the workshop, the stuffed animals that are put together and dressed in firefighter uniforms are donated to a local organization that helps kids. In this case, the donation was given to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Michigan and will help them stock their Holiday gift shop for parents who have children in the hospital during the holiday season.

This Team Activity Is a Nice Balance of Fun and Learning.

The DTE managers had a great time poking fun at various personality styles that emerged during the program and drawing on each group’s strengths to solve various riddles and challenges. As each group acquired different materials needed to build the stuffed animals, the trading began so that the task could be completed.

“It was awesome!!! Ellen was so accommodating and professional… It was a great day!” –Julianne Philips, DTE Energy

Rescue Bear ® is a great event for giving people a chance to see how their natural strengths can help them be stronger communicators and better co-workers while giving something back to the local community. It’s also just a lot of fun!
