The Vice President & Chief Revenue Officer at WGL Holdings, Inc. was excited to offer his team a fun-filled bike team building event that would promote transparency, help individuals to come together in a collaborative environment, and offer a way for individuals to both meet and learn more about each other. The organizer at WGL Holdings took charge and arranged for The Leader’s Institute® to facilitate an on-point, memorable bike team building event at The Waterford Event Center in Springfield, Virginia on Tuesday, November 17th. With almost 100 participants the room was filled with incredible energy as new relationships were formed, and teams collaborated to accomplish multiple tasks. Individuals shared information about themselves, and the teams overcame some challenges in their final activity where they collectively built 16 children’s bicycles.
The Vice President concluded the event by sharing his own personal story of overcoming obstacles, working hard to get ahead, and how as a kid, his own bicycle contributed to some major, life-changing events. John Sanchez from the local Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) organization was standing by having already introduced himself and his organization. To wrap up an incredible event, led by Leader’s Institute® Instructor, Michelle Riklan, 16 children from the BBBS entered the room to receive brand new bikes. The kids were all wide-eyed while some employees were teary. Great job WGL Holdings, Inc.! In just 2 hours, they made progress in team relations and had a significant impact on the lives of 16 families—and right before the holiday season.
