The event was facilitated by the enthusiastic CEO of the Leaders Institute himself, Doug Staneart, and instructor Debbie Brunet. Throughout the event, Henkel’s team displayed exceptional engagement and camaraderie. This offsite meeting was not only a chance to strengthen team bonds, however. It was also a meaningful opportunity to contribute to the community. Henkel, known for its leadership in innovation and sustainability, brilliantly leveraged this event to reinforce these values among its team members. The Skamania Lodge provided an ideal setting for the event, giving the members an environment to let loose.

The participants were divided into smaller groups where they learned essential team building principles. The event was designed to identify and utilize the diverse strengths of Henkel’s team members. Each challenge completed allowed teams to earn the necessary materials to build teddy bears. The atmosphere was filled with enthusiasm and lively discussions, reflecting Henkel’s dynamic and diverse workforce of 48,000 colleagues worldwide.

The culmination of the event was both touching and impactful, as the assembled teddy bears were donated to WAGAP (Washington Gorge Action Programs), a local charity dedicated to supporting the community. This gesture not only brought joy to the children receiving the bears but also instilled a sense of pride and accomplishment in all the participants.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Henkel for their dedication to fostering team spirit and community involvement. A special thank you also goes to WAGAP for their ongoing efforts in the community and for allowing us the opportunity to contribute to their cause.
