Walgreen’s Builds Teams and Bikes in Chicago, Illinois

Build A Bike Chicago Over 60 employees of Walgreen’s came together in Chicago, Illinois, for a Build-A-Bike ® Team Building Activity. The participants came from across the country for meetings that included this special time. There was a lot of laughter and camaraderie as everyone joined in the fun to enjoy one another and the unique opportunity. The end result was that 10 bikes were built and donated to the Union League Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago. It was a memorable event as the Walgreen’s leaders were challenged in their memory skills, some creative ventures, and then the bike construction. Each part of the event focused on aspects of team building and leadership. Amidst the fun were unique learning opportunities that everyone participated in and enjoyed.

One unique feature of the Build-A-Bike ® fun team-building activity is the downplaying of competition. In this case, every activity was precluded with an announcement that what was happening was not a competition. But any time you divide into teams the competitive nature of individuals is going to come out. In this case, each activity revealed competitiveness. At the end of the event, during the debrief, the competitive issue was addressed and how competition can bring out the best in performance and that can be good, it can also be detrimental if it causes us to withhold information that can be helpful to the accomplishment of the overall task or goal. In this case, the goal was to build ten bikes. If a team focused on getting finished with there bike first or treated the activity as a competition it actually hurt them and the rest of the teams and kept them from being as efficient and as effective as they could have been. In essence, it is more important to see the ten groups as members of the same team trying to accomplish a  shared goal rather than 10 separate teams trying to win a competition.

Walgreen’s had a lot of fun and they have a great team. It was a pleasure working with them and their shared camaraderie and commitment to the goals came through with a great Build-A-Bike Team Building Event.
